You need to add the path where FFMPEG is install to the open_basedir var of your PHP installation ini. If that is not possible you might install FFMPEG into a folder under your forum installation.

Check first with admin.php?tools/phpinfo this might help or give you some more information

@krvam ffmpeg for vps/dedicate server share host not use it.

if you have vps/dedicate server. you don't need to have FFMPEG installed on the server to have XMG fully working.
All you have to do is download the single binary of FFMPEG, upload it on your server and point it on your XMG admin Option.
Can be downloaded here: https://johnvansickle.com/ffmpeg/
