Hi, Carl
Thank you for your reply. I got the package from FFmpeg Zeranoe containing binary and source. I don't compile. I use the ffmpeg.exe as is. That package is available to download from my website. In question (1) I am asking distributing file ffmpeg.exe only. Are you saying I should to include the whole package in my software distribution? I'm sorry, it's not clear.
