Turns out the latest stable release of ffmpeg (1.2.2) does not go along with ZoneMinder 1.25.0.

Installing the 0.9 version of ffmpeg solved this issue.

wget http://www.ffmpeg.org/releases/ffmpeg-0.9.tar.gz
tar -xzvf ffmpeg-0.9.tar.gz
cd ffmpeg-0.9
./configure --enable-gpl --enable-shared --enable-pthreads
make
make install
make install-libs
