​Feel free to make one ;)
RPM packages do exist, but I'm not sure how well this will work with FC20:
The remark about the need to update is that security fixes are most likely
not backported that far. That pose a security threat as many
vulnerabilities will apply to the system. Of course if it stay off the
internet and *always* get its input from safe source, whatever. F20 end of
life was (according to wikipedia) at the end of 2013.

Alternatively, it is not uncommon to have a ~/bin directory in your path,
and quite tidy too. Also, ffmpeg static builds don't need any extra file to
operate beside the binary; you only need the ffmpeg binary somewhere. You
can even drop it in your system binaries directory (something like
/usr/local/bin is made for that, at least in Debian-based systems).
