ffmpeg-php is not ffmpeg! It uses ffmpeg.

That instruction is very old, seeing as it refers to "ffmpeg-0.4.9_pre1
or higher". Do not use such an ancient version of ffmpeg please.

This is the official site for ffmpeg:

For CentOS, you will want to use the rpmfusion repositories, or - even
better - build your own version of ffmpeg.

Otherwise, you probably only need the dependencies, such as php-gd and
php-devel (assuming the instructions are still valid), and then follow
the section "Installing ffmpeg-php". This is beyond the scope of this
mailing list though.
