Did you also purge its dependencies and reinstalled from official repos?
I think the relevant dependencies are: 
ffmpeg libavcodec51 libavdevice52 libavformat52 libavutil49
libpostproc51 libswscale0

but I would go for every dependency just to be sure. AFAIK, many users
are having the same problem and I think the recommendation from debian
is to use only official packages. 

Of course you could also downgrade to last debian-multimedia compatible
version if you have other packages that depend on ffmpeg, libavcodec51
and friends.
