Oh yes it is. If ffmpeg is broken, incorrectly installed, inaccessible, or misconfigured, GiP won't be able to launch it. As someone suggested earlier in the thread, take the failed ffmpeg command from the GiP error message and try to run it at the command line. If it still begins with /usr/share/ffmpeg, change it to /usr/bin/ffmpeg.
