> Can you cross compile ffmpeg for Windows using the new bash built in to Win10 anniversary? I'm currently using MinGW but it seems like it might be easier to use the built in bash if possible. However I tried a basic build, using the same commands I do in MinGW, and it fails. So I assume there is something I need to do or setup to make it work, but I'm not sure what as my knowledge of Linux is very limited. (I followed a guide to setup MinGW)

The bash for windows contains a full and native Ubuntu userland.
So if you compile ffmpeg in there, you end up with an ELF binary for
Linux, just as if you'd have compiled on an actual Ubuntu Linux.
