Okay, if it was the libraries you needed, because you had an old
program which has never been adapted to ffmpeg's new APIs/ABIs, that
would have been a valid reason. But for the command line tools, I see
no reason not to grab hold of a considerably newer version.

If you want to stick to repos: In the case of EL7, I know that you can
find much newer versions of the multimedia programs including ffmpeg
(4.0) in the Negativo17 multimedia repo:


$ yum-config-manager 

Note that it may or may not clash with rpmfusion, depending on what you
really need. They work fine for me in parallel on Fedora 27. (There was
a conflict for a while, as smplayer from rpmfusion needed different
libs than negativo17 provided.) YMMV.
