[Ffmpeg-devel] Re: [Ffmpeg-user] Windows install dir containing whitespace

Attached is a my attempt to create a patch that changes the default 
installation directory of ffmpeg on windows from "/c/Program Files/FFmpeg" 
to "/c/Program_Files/FFmpeg". The underscore is intentional, and due to the 
install-script's inability to cope with paths containing whitespace.

Please double-chech my patch, as I've never used "diff" before.
