This page hosts packages containing binaries of ffmpeg, ffprobe and ffplay.
These are compatible with Windows 7 and above. They may work on Windows Vista but that hasn't been tested.
If you're downloading ffmpeg to support features in a program such as Krita or Blender, the release essentials build is sufficient.

There are 4 Windows build variants available:

  • git full - built from master branch with a large set of libraries
  • git essentials - built from master branch with commonly-used libraries
  • release full - built from latest release branch with a large set of libraries
  • release essentials - built from latest release branch with commonly-used libraries

Unless you have a specific requirement, download one of the git builds. Unlike many software, releases are primarily made for the convenience of OS distributors and package managers and don't signify greater stability or maturity.

All builds are 64-bit and licensed as GPL v3. Tools are licensed as LGPL v3.
All variants are available as statically linked builds. In addition, the release full variant is available as a shared build with development files.

7z archives can be opened using the free 7-zip utility.
