Did you even try googling? Very first result for "ffmpeg centos" was tuxmachines.org/node/17063 "How to install ffmpeg on centos/rhel". –  Marc B Mar 3 '11 at 20:25

I found this to be the best guide when installing ffmpeg.

http://www.videochat-scripts.com/install-ffmpeg-mplayer-flvtool2-yamdi-x264-theora-mp3lame-vorbis-ogg-faac/

Make sure you follow each step. If the install of any dependency fails, retry.

Good luck.

EDIT

The guide doesn't include qt-faststart. Follow this if you need it:

cd ~/ffmpeg
make tools/qt-faststart
sudo checkinstall --pkgname=qt-faststart --pkgversion="$(./version.sh)" --backup=no \
    --deldoc=yes --fstrans=no --default install -D -m755 tools/qt-faststart \
    /usr/local/bin/qt-faststart

Also, follow @pablo's point about git rather than svn.

this is pretty accurate except install ffmpeg from git rather than svn. –  pablo Mar 3 '11 at 23:14
    
@pablo - Agreed, good point. –  Christopher Mar 3 '11 at 23:26
    
@pablo - Great link below. Wish I found this a long time ago - would have made my life a lot easier! –  Christopher Mar 4 '11 at 9:05

Hi I hope this helps you, it seems pretty popular for easy installs.

ffmpeginstaller is a free software completely written in bash shell script. The purpose of this script is to build a video streaming platform form in your Gnu/Linux server. So you can start video streaming websites and avoid the cost of installations. This script not only install ffmpeg but also all its friends packages.
