Welcome to the fun, fun world of FFmpeg!

Apologies for asking an elementary question, but, the FFmpeg program 
runs from the Command window. Are you opening a Command window and 
typing "ffmpeg" at the command prompt?

If these terms are unfamiliar, then a good next step might be to get a 
tutorial on using the Windows command prompt. Be sure to look for 
details on how to use quotes around command parameters. This list is not 
a good place to get that tutorial; people here mostly assume that 
everyone already knows how to use command-line interface programs, like 
FFmpeg and many others.

Best regards,
