Currently, the FFMPEG binaries are housed in a user's repository: https://github.com/ncalexan/geckodriver/releases/download/v0.24.0-android/ffmpeg-4.1.4-i686-static.tar.xz

We should move these to a standard location like tooltool or to a mozilla github repo.

We also should update FFMPEG to the latest compatible version, especially considering the issue discovered via bug 1771977. We could use https://github.com/mozilla/perf-automation to store the binaries instead of Nick's fork of the geckodriver repository. Otherwise, we could consider other options for retrieving the binaries such as tooltool.
