Windows binaries usually do. I don't think I've ever found one that  
didn't. I have, interestingly, seen windows builds that come was  
ffmpeg.exe, avcodec.dll, avformat.dll, etc. Which is fine (if pointless).  
Throw it in a folder somewhere and it works.

But really, the situation that exists, where the world's most widely-used  
open source media utility doesn't by default support three of the most  
useful (if not the three most useful) media format is just... I don't  
know... comical.
