    Need Help Installing FFmpeg Converter


    Hello,
    I'm not having success installing the FFmpeg Converter on my PC.
    I was following the instructions posted here.

    After I thought I installed it I got this message.

    When I checked some other sites I didn't see the amount of files that I got when I unzipped the download.
    Here's two pics showing what was unzipped.

    What I did was copy and paste all this into a new file in "C"
    I didn't open any of the folders.

    Unopened folders?
    Where I pasted?

    That looks like a set of source code.

    You need to download the binary files.

    Cheers.
    What did I download?
    Should I keep it or delete it from the folder?

    I still don't know what the source codes are and if I need them.

    Just delete it. Source code is for programmer deities not mere mortals to modify the executable code themselves.
