Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net

Does this use a DLL?

Hello Rde

There are only project references to SCRRUN.DLL
which is for the File-System-Object.

Other than that, the only thing you need to do is
to visit and download the FFmpeg package.

FFmpeg Windows packages are built and distributed

Unzip the FFmpeg package, locate a directory named "Bin"
in there are three (3) exe files, FFmpeg, FFprobe and FFplay.
Copy FFmpeg and FFplay and put those two files in the Video Vice

@ ero

Alright, You only need to copy "FFmpeg" and "FFprobe"
not FFplay, that was a typo.
