What I do, Mike, is simpler. I add the ffmpeg command to the 'Send to' 
context menu. To do that, all you need is to put the line
D:\Videos\_APPS\\fmpeg-421\bin\ffmpeg.exe -i "%1" -c copy "%1_"
into a batch file, and put the batch file in 
'C:\Users\...\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo', where '...' is 
your user account.

No regedit needed.

Hope this helps.
