I'm not a coder but what I think might be a problem is the fact that 
ffmpeg libraries follow global coding standard and syntax, while while 
VC follows Microsoft standards and syntax.

Since you use VC, it's designed such that it's apps run only on Windows, 
how would you expect it'll take any non-Microsoft standard library which 
does not break compatibility with any other OS? e.g. Visual C++ doesn't 
follow c99 standard, instead has it's own standards, but ffmpeg 
libraries follow the standards, thus is cross platform.
