i assume you mean shell_exec() from PHP

no smart admin out there will enable shell commands on a webserver
because they break any open_basedir configuration and the 500 status
code is a PHP "Fatal error" on a correctly configured webserver which
does not open a info-leak by spit errors to the browser

so you neeed to run ffmpeg via cron-jobs and PHP needs different
"php.ini" for httpd and cli, you need shell access and finally
you need a dedicated server for what you are trying
