The name "fedoraman" could refer to him ('-man') using Fedora ('fedora-'), but it could be my imagination. Anyway if that's the case, simply open up your package managing application ("Add/Remove tool") and select ffmpeg to be installed, if present. Or head to rpm.pbone.net, search for ffmpeg rpm package for your Fedora version (better use the advanced search to get rid of the other distribution package links), check it's dependencies, download the package and double-click on it to install after downloading. Should it mention any unmet dependencies, try to get them first trough your package managing application if possible, or if not, then the same way you got ffmpeg.
I'm pretty sure you get it easily trough your package manager (pirut?), and if there were any dependencies unmet, they should be fairly small in number. If you get ffmpeg trough the package manager, you don't need to worry about the dependencies.
EDIT: yeah, just like the above poster mentioned, you need to know if you are running 32 or 64-bit version of the system (and if it's not Fedora, that's a case too). If your machine is 32-bit then you know it's 32-bit, but if your hardware is 64-bit it could be either one. Well, you should know - and when you do, make sure you download the correct package, unless you use the package manager which knows it already.
