A similar smaller utility is:
But both allow just symlinks to directorie (and need W2000 or newer).
If I recall correctly, Vista promises to allow symlinks to files.
But that would be restricting the platforms supported by FFMpeg and/or
introducing a dependency on an unusual utility.
I prefer Ramiro's solution.
