You shouldn't need to upgrade ffmpeg along with rtmpdump.  It's 
completely separate from rtmpdump and has nothing to do with downloading 
programmes.  That said, you may want to upgrade if you have a 
particularly old version, though building ffmpeg from source is not 
quite so simple due to surfeit of possible dependencies.

What versions of rtmpdump and ffmpeg did you get from your distro's 
repository (run "rtmpdump -v" and "ffmpeg -version")?  The Debian 
squeeze repo has adequate versions for desktop machines, but I've no 
idea what you get for use on a Pi.
