It seems like nobody has created npm module to get prebuilt binaries for ffmpeg, ffprobe, ffplay and ffserver.

I went ahead and put something together quickly.

API and Node module

HTTP API: http://ffbinaries.com

Node module: https://www.npmjs.com/package/ffbinaries

Git repos

API: https://github.com/vot/ffbinaries-api

Node module: https://github.com/vot/ffbinaries-api

At the moment it simply links to externally hosted archives containing binaries. In the future they will be repackaged into individual components and I will add automated unzipping in the npm module.

Issues and pull requests welcome.
