I updated my Zoneminder installation to the latest version (1.27 master branch) from source at GitHub. My intention is to get the latest version that has an updated FFMPEG library and the libVLC. My original intention was to also building x264 and ffmpeg from source to ensure I have all codecs compiled in from the start.I did not have to do that because the Fedora20 Packages from RPMFusion already have what I needed (that makes life easier). I have done this before (see http://tom.webarts.ca) for by past experiences.
I am also re-installing the OS - Fedora20 to get the latest security updates.
The Zoneminder wiki has pretty good instructions. http://www.zoneminder.com/wiki/index.php/Documentation#Installation_from_Source
The forum also has a very good summary of installing from RPMs http://www.zoneminder.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=19119
