Homebrew is great for installing all the libraries and dependencies, but I never figured out how to use it to install ffmpeg with desired options.  In any case you might get a version that is more than a few days old, which would not sit well on this mailing list :-)

First make sure you have the command line tools installed.  Enter ‘gcc’ or ‘make’ in Terminal, it will offer to download them if needed.

Here’s approximately what I do:

brew install libogg libvorbis libgsm libvpx fdk-aac lame libass orc sdl xvid yasm pkg-config x264 x265
#               (also sdl is needed if you want ffplay to be produced)

# Then in the directory where you want to keep ffmpeg source:
git clone git://source.ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg.git ffmpeg
# 'git pull’ to update it

./configure --enable-nonfree --enable-gpl --enable-version3 --enable-libmp3lame --enable-libx264 --enable-libx265 --enable-libgsm --enable-libvpx --enable-libfdk-aac --enable-libvorbis --enable-libass --enable-libfreetype --enable-libfontconfig --enable-libfribidi --disable-outdevs --disable-ffserver --disable-network && make -j 4 && make install
