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:

<<trying: <http://ffmpeg.arrozcru.org/> ?
<<This website is no more.
<<You should instead go to <http://ffmpeg.zeranoe.com>

Zeranoe FFmpeg daily builds for Windows
http://ffmpeg.zeranoe.com/builds/

...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 git.ffmpeg.org /gitweb/ffmpeg.git/blob/refs/heads/release/3.3:/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):

That's the full commit log. The release announcement is easier to read.

You're absolutely right, my bad. Will keep it in mind for the future. 8)

This is the only FFmpeg specific thread I found in a search so posting here.

Just reading the Distrowatch weekly and the "tips" section has some command line tips/examples for FFmpeg.

---> https://distrowatch.com/weekly.php?issue=20190909#tips

NOTE: This is for Linux but some of the arguments/strings may be the same or similar in Windows.

From my experience, although filenames/paths are different, the command syntax is platform independent.

Exactly, instead of drive C: you may have drive SDA5 and case matters so file Hello is different than hello.

Quick tip for hardcore FFmpegers... :mrgreen:

If you're looking for FFmepg builds that include the non-free Fraunhofer FDK AAC libraries -- ('--enable-libfdk-aac': see https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/Encode/AAC for more info) which are allegedly the best for M4A/AAC lossy encoding -- the only place you'll be able to find them is at the "MPlayer on Windows" page:



NOTE: you'll have to download the separate ZIPs for the libfdk-aac encoder available further down the page and extract them to the same location of the main FFmpeg executable. :!:

The latest build is currently N-95377-gcc50d113c8, dated 2019-10-15.

Short of compiling it yourself, this is the only source I'm aware of and, trust me, I have searched high and low... :P

Damn, that's where I get my latest build of ffmpeg.

Are there any other good sources for pre-built ffmpeg binaries?
