    Yes, but you might break the installed packages (i.e. your desktop's sound notifications, vlc or any other installed media player) by doing this.

    Although, the changes in ffmpeg are not that drastic and incompatible nowadays as they have been in earlier times...

    In the end I'd say it isn't really worth the effort. Just consider ffmpeg a low-level package like glibc, if you want working multimedia.
    And I am not a guy who's afraid of recompiling things himself...
