    About FFmpeg.exe program

    Recently, for the first time, I used ffmpeg.exe while making some dvd, (and this thanks to
    a member of this forum).
    I started a search in my pc and found in 5 programs ffmpeg.exe, each one is different from
    the other, by size and version. Which one is the right one ?
    This question is just for knowledge.
    Here attached a screenshot of the findings.

    FFmpeg is a widely respected Open Source video processing package and licenced under GNU public licences. As such, FFmpeg and its libraries are often used by other software developers (particularly in the Open Source community) as part of their products (why reinvent the wheel?). Your DVDStyler (also GNU-licenced OS software) uses FFmpeg for its video processing. Your other software packages have done the same, though each may have included a different revision of FFmpeg. Note also that each package may have only included those parts of FFmpeg's libraries that it needs.

    Which one should you use? Well, I'd advise none of them. Better to download a full copy of the latest revision direct from themselves. That way you'll have all the libraries plus the FFplay utility - very useful for previewing your processing as it takes all the same command options as FFmpeg. FFplay is unlikely to have been included in any of those software packages you list.

    FFmpeg is the leading multimedia framework, able to decode, encode, transcode, mux, demux, stream, filter and play pretty much anything that humans and machines have created. It supports the most obscure ancient formats up to the cutting edge. No matter if they were designed by some standards committee, the community or a corporation.
