Hi Henrik

I tried launching msys2 from mingw64 shell. But still receiving the same error. I am using windows 10 x64. I am trying to get a dll for libx264 which can work with visual studio 2015 projects and WinRT app just like ffmpeg. This is how I compiled ffmpeg for win10rt: https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/CompilationGuide/WinRT
Tried the same for x264 too. No luck. Could you please guide me.

Subject: Compiling ffmpeg with libx264


I am trying to compile ffmpeg with libx264 in windows 10 x64. Based on the guideline in ffmpeg wiki I am able to compile ffmpeg alone successfully. But when I try to compile x264 lib based on the guide provided in ffmpeg wiki it's failing saying "could not identify os" and give two links to update the configure.* (2 files). Once I updated the file from the provided link and try to compile again MSYS is throwing error "could not identify OS" . The same MSYS compiled the ffmpeg fine. 😞  please help me to compile libx264 . I know how to enable it for ffmpeg once its cookies using the enable-libx264 attribute.
