If you install from source from the mplayerhq.hu site, when you perform the 'make' it will also execute with the "install-man" target. That's the equivalent of running:
By default, make will try to install the files in /usr/local/man/man1, however the man files are not generated from the texi files by this process. In order to do that, you need to install the 'texi2html' utility. Without that utility, the conversion of the texi files will fail, and the subsequent installation of the man pages will fail.
I'm guessing that you don't have texi2html installed if you don't have the ffmpeg man pages.
