Your distribution may supply ffmpeg. Using the package management
system to install ffmpeg from the distro repository would be the
easiest method. However, it will probably install a fairly old ffmpeg
and may not be configured in a sane or useful way. If you need to
compile ffmpeg and are using Ubuntu or its relatives see:

HOWTO: Install and use the latest FFmpeg and x264
