I just installed Visual C++ 2005 Express edition beta 2 but i still have 
the same problem (ffmpeg not working properly with dlls: codec not foud 

So i was wondering that maybe my mingw environment is the problem...
Could somebody (that uses ffmpeg dll with visual studio compiled apps) 
post the list of files downoaded and installed for mingw/msys environment?
