Same problem here - into which folder/place should I put these? After all, I need to validate the installation each time at the bottom of the drop window. (Mac)
You don't 'put' them anywhere. Download the binaries to your desktop, download ffmpegX, load it, direct it to those files on your desktop and it will place everything in its proper place. What remains on your desktop can be tossed out. You may need to uninstall everything first.
This is an ongoing problem, and is NOT solved by following the standard install procedure outlined above. Also, it is not true that it needs to be reinstalled. It is never installed in the first place. If you do what you normally do when you startup, even though it seems like it installs, if you then select "Install Binaries" from the File menu, you will see that ffmpegX still seems to think it is not installed. I have found that even if you have a PPC machine, you still need to select and download the .intel version of mpeg2enc. I have tried this out on a test file and apparently this still results in a functional codec, however. It seems that as of the last few versions of ffmpegx, the application requires the intel version.

Relaunch the app and you get the splash for the registration instead of the "install binaries".
Try it, it may work for you!
