For converting the video, always give the full path name of ffmpeg.exe on the exec function.

That means if you are converting wmv file, try this:-

if( $fileExtension == "wmv" ) {
 
exec("C:\ffmpeg -i ".$dynamic_path."/".$moviepath."".$fileName."
-sameq -acodec mp3 -ar 22050 -ab 32 -f flv -s 320x240 ".$dynamic_path."/".$flvpath."myflv.flv");
 
}

It assumes that ffmpeg is installed on c:\ (that means the path to ffmpeg.exe is c:\ffmpeg.exe)

Also your codesnippet will work if you add ffmpeg as a Environment Variable and put the path of the ffmpeg.exe as the value of environment variable.
