Getting the real ffmpeg to work right is simple:
See this solution -- and it auto-updates using the Jon Severinsson PPA.
@izx correctly points out that ffmpeg can not coexist with libav, but the advice in his last bullet, "...stick to libav since it's the officially supported fork and is as new and actively developed as ffmpeg," may not be best. At least in Precise, I find the real ffmpeg superior.
The answer to your question, @Gabriel Rojas (cc @nitstorm, @Eliah Kagan), is that one can not simply add the ffmpeg repo and update. The train wreck shown in the OP is to be expected if this is done. Instead, libav must first be purged, THEN the real ffmpeg can be installed, and should work without error. See the above link for step-by-step commands.
Since doing this a couple days ago, have pushed the new ffmpeg hard -- and found it flawless.
Last activity here was some time ago, but this thread comes up high in the search rank so wanted to update with a solution that works.
