Determining the path that a yum package installed to

I've installed ffmpeg using yum under Redhat, and I'm having difficulty figuring out where (what path) it installed the package to. Is there an easy way of determining this without resorting to finding it myself manually?

Answer

yum uses RPM, so the following command will list the contents of the installed package:

$ rpm -ql package-name
