This is not correct, you may of course use static linking 
and can still fulfill all requirements of the LGPL.
(It may just be a little more complicated.)

Or in other words: static or dynamic linking and LGPL are 
completely independent, in both cases, you have to give 
your users the option to update the library (FFmpeg).
