How exactly? Platform (mingw or cygwin), version of gcc, configure
command? (Maybe you already posted that, doesnt matter, when asked for

Command line? Output?

Not even the version string? What about ffmpeg -h and ffmpeg -formats?

What is needed is enough info to be able to reproduce (maybe) the
problem without having to dig in umpteen mails and a tutorial. This is
ffmpeg-devel, not archeology 101; and you failed to prove it is a bug
and not some 'user error'.
