How can I install ffmpeg in cpanel?
FFMPEG is installed from shell.

Does installing ffmpeg creates problems in any way?
If it is installed properly then there should not be any problems at all.

Does it modify the php.ini file in the server and create problem to the existing PHP applications?
One edit must be made to php.ini, but it doesn't affect other PHP apps.

There is a nice script on SourceForge which will save you a lot of time:

ffmpeginstall
"ffmpeginstall is a full ffmpeg , ffmpeg-php configuration script in Linux servers. This will help you to setup server environments for streaming applications."

I had once installed ffmpeg in a plesk server and it renamed the /etc/php.ini file to some other file and created its own php.ini file. Hence I could not make any changes to the original php.ini file as it was no longer the default php.ini file. Is there a similar problem with Cpanel?

I have no way of knowing which script you used to install FFMPEG, but I've never encountered such a problem.
