You're welcome. :-)

I'm not sure from which repository your ffmpeg is coming (RPMFusion?),
but basically, it's because they don't provide a newer version. The
background would be that OSs like CentOS have long term support, and
therefore rely on APIs and SW not changing. So once they have provided
e.g. ffmpeg 1.0.X, they continue to do so (bumping the X). I could thin
of different ways they could still provide the newest ffmpeg at the
same time ... but they just don't.

Perhaps the negativo17 HandBrake repos provide a newer version (just
speculating). Otherwise, it is wisest to build your own:
(It's not totally difficult, but it helps if you have a bit of Linux
experience. We're here to help. :-))
