I don't know if there are differences between Windows builds but for FFmpeg i use builds from http://ffmpeg.zeranoe.com/builds/

If you don't want to dive into the huge documentation of FFmpeg, here is quick memo for useful commands : 19 ffmpeg commands for all needs.

Zeranoe has become the preferred source for Win FFmpeg builds nowadays:

Zeranoe FFmpeg daily builds for Windows

...Welcome to the Zeranoe FFmpeg Windows builds.
...Here you can find everything you need for a working version of FFmpeg on Windows....
...(on this repository)...you will find the following types of builds:
  • Static builds provide one self-contained .exe file for each program (ffmpeg, ffprobe, ffplay).
  • Shared builds provide each library as a separate .dll file (avcodec, avdevice, avfilter, etc.), and .exe files that depend on those libraries for each program
  • Dev packages provide the headers and .lib/.dll.a files required to use the .dll files in other programs
If you are confused about what download you need, just download the 32-bit static build:

I'm unsure on where to post this, since I seem to recall a different FFmpeg topic. In the meantime, here goes... :?

FFmpeg v3.3.1 released (changelog at https://git.ffmpeg.org/gitweb/ffmpeg.gi ... /Changelog).

FYI, the official site "Windows builds" pointer goes to https://ffmpeg.zeranoe.com/builds/.

Incidentally, here's a good beginning article (it mentions Linux throughout but it will work in Windows too):
