You can check out my build server:
https://ffmpeg.martin-riedl.de <https://ffmpeg.martin-riedl.de/>
It provides static builds for FFmpeg, FFprobe and FFplay for Intel and Apple Silicon (nightly builds and releases).

One major difference to evermeet.cx <http://evermeet.cx/> is that I don’t have that much external codecs embedded (will be extended over time).
In addition my binaries are signed and the installers also notarized (so no/less trouble with Gatekeeper :-D ).

Also the source code for compilation is located here:
https://gitlab.com/martinr92/ffmpeg <https://gitlab.com/martinr92/ffmpeg>
Feel free to open an issue here if you miss a codec that is important for you.

Importantly, they also include FFprobe, FFplay and FFserver.  However, the evermeet maintainer has advised that they will never prepare builds specifically for Apple Silicon ARM [https://evermeet.cx/ffmpeg/apple-silicon-arm <https://evermeet.cx/ffmpeg/apple-silicon-arm>].
> The current x86 builds do run on Apple Silicon by means of Apple’s Rosetta 2 emulation.  However, for various reasons, some users prefer not to use Rosetta 2 with its attendant overhead.  Those users thus have no officially recognised build of FFmpeg available.  At some time in the future, Apple will deprecate Rosetta 2 from which time x86 code will not run in macOS.
