Thank you Palantir! There was indeed a workaround. This is what I did :
sudo apt-get install git build-essential cmake extra-cmake-modules kio-dev pkg-config libavformat-dev libavcodec-dev libswscale-dev
git clone git://anongit.kde.org/ffmpegthumbs cd ffmpegthumbs git checkout origin/frameworks mkdir -p builddir cd builddir && cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$(kf5-config --prefix) -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -DKDE_INSTALL_USE_QT_SYS_PATHS=ON sudo make install

So it works :)
