If you get package not found, then you will need to add few lines in the yum repository for dag packages installation. Create a file named dag.repo in /etc/yum.repos.d with the following contents on it

make this file by using gedit.
save it to the desktop or home directory as dag.repo
then as super user from the command line
mv dag.repo /etc/yum.repos.d/
then try to install ffmpeg again.
# if ffmpeg still not found. run
yum clean all
and try it again. should work.
