Installing FFmpeg in Windows

  1. Download a static build from here.
  2. Use 7-Zip to unpack it in the folder of your choice.
  3. Open a command prompt with administrator's rights.
  4. Run the command:
    setx /M PATH "path\to\ffmpeg\bin;%PATH%"
    Be sure to alter the command so that path\to reflects the folder path from your root to ffmpeg\bin.
