I think you need to be more specific. ffmpeg is a pretty large project, and the 
community is not the most welcoming of new-comers, even those with previous 
open source software experience. I'd strongly suggest trying to help us to 
help you. 

It would help if you can say what you are trying to do (not at the ffmpeg 
level, but at the business / outcome level - ffmpeg libraries might be a way to 
get to the goal, but probably aren't part of the goal), what code or commands 
you have already written, what the results were (what was expected, and what 
was unexpected), and what you expected to happen instead.

Possibly reading http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html and 
following that would help.
