It has been deprecated for a while and is removed when enabling swscaler in ffmpeg, it uses it uncoditionally and has been our ~arch for more than a year:
*ffmpeg-0.4.9_p20070616-r1 (26 Jun 2007)
26 Jun 2007; Luca Barbato <email@example.com>
with ffmpeg 0.4.9_p20081014 it is completely gone and causes build failures rather than runtime symbol lookup errors.
Quoting upstream :
"ffmpeg-php is not compatible with ffmpeg's swscaler. Enabling swscaler in ffmpeg disables the img_convert functions that ffmpeg-php needs to do its thing. Ffmpeg must be configured and compiled without the '--enable-swscale' flag."
I'll certainly won't try to fix that myself, I attempted a similar ->swscale migration once and miserably failed w/ lots of memleaks (probably not really related to my work).
So, unless someone wants to patch this (anyone from media-video? if not, just remove yourself from CC again), feel free to hardmask this for now (we might also consider removing it, but upstream's opinion might change, so hardmasking sounds like the best option for now).

is ffmpeg.php still under development?
And because of this, CCing treecleaners. You have 30 days to fix your package, new ffmpeg is with swscaler is going stable.

Do not remove ffmpeg-php at least 12 projects are based on ffmpeg-php. A new version of drupal, VidiScript, phpmotion, etc. Someone will fix ffmpeg-php to keep their project going. If ffmpeg-php is not fixed by spring I will put a bounty on it to encourage someone to fix it.
So, someone should put bug 250636 in the tree and be done with this mess, eh?

I should add that it will only solve "this mess" if it compiles against ffmpeg 0.4.9_p20081014 otherwise it is a moot point.
0.5.3 removed from tree, replaced by 0.6.0. Unmasked.
