There is a version in the DrFFMPEG that compiled in both MSVC and MinGW. 
It was done a long time ago and not tested recently. So it may not work 
out of the box. The big issue is to pass the right parameters though 
(like capture devices and stuff like that). That was a GUI to help do 
that in Qt, but that GUI doesn't compile anymore...

So with a little bit more work it could work.
