Yeah I know he wasnt bashing me..thats why I thanked him too at the same
time :). No hard feeling from my side.
The point is if I go with other options, like using an already built
version, I would be acting like a user, but my objective is to explore
ffmpeg more and more from lowest possible level to highest possible level.
and come back and share with this community. and I think we all are on same
page about that.

Moreover: If people keep correcting my english here. My real problem will
go in back burner thats why i mentioned not to correct my english here. It
will be of no use. As I already know what mistakes i have made, Its just in
hurry i put wrong words which I guess I will learn with experience.

Anyways Thanks for sharing your experience here.
