My suggestion is to opt for a VPS, cloud, or dedicated server. This type of plan will give you more control over your environment and is more suited to resource-intensive sites. You basically install whatever you want. There are some reasonably priced VPS/cloud hosting plans out there, but you have to be willing to spend more than you would for shared hosting. With a VPS, you will be able to install at least PHP 5.3/FFmpeg/ffmpeg-php extension, and you could even compile it yourself via a simple web interface if your plan includes WHM/cPanel
(if you aren't comfortable with SSH and the comand line interface)...
