[Libav-user] Compiling libav libraries

I'm a bit confused on how the libraries are meant to be compiled. Right now
I'm working on a 64 bit Windows machine and am trying to compile the
libraries into a C project. When I tried linking with the
<http://ffmpeg-master-latest-win64-gpl-shared.zip/>" *libraries, the
program would immediately fail. From what I could see, the name of one of
the libraries I was trying to use was libavformat.dll.a. I'm a bit confused
on whether or not this is a shared library or a static library, as the
package states it's shared, but the 'a' extension indicates that it is
static. I would ultimately prefer a static library, but for some reason
none of the packages without the shared label have any libraries at all. I
wanted to know if I could have these issues clarified.
