You probably need to install one or more dependencies.  I have no idea how to do that on iOS, but in Debian I'd start with something like:
apt-get install libavformat57

I have a feeling once you get past that one there will be others you need.

Looks like ffmpeg's stable version no longer includes that library or what not. I'm on a mac and brew doesn't have older versions of ffmpeg or that library. So I'll have to figure out another way.

Thanks for your help.

You can install older versions with macports that has libavformat.57.

Alternatively you can use Brew to install ffmpeg like so.
brew install ffmpeg@x.y

x.y being version

and if that doesnt work you can use a custom formula that a user built.

brew install sy1vain/ffmpeg/ffmpeg@3.4

The windows version doesn't have these issues - you can use Wine if you must, or a virtual machine.  There is also a python script and virtualDub which will allow you to make the required bif files if you prefer.
