there exists no offical ffmpeg binary, for no OS at all
whatever you find linked for binarys is just a pointer

because on Linux you typically get packages from distribution
or 3rd party repos or fire up a compiler / rpmbuild

in case of Apple 98% of OSX users have zero technical knowledge
and *rely* on a random binary found somewhere

but as said - there is *no official binary* at all and whenever
you use one from a random source instead self built or from
your distribution you do that at your own risk
