That's what I get for not having a windows box to test it on yet. ;-)

I disagree with this; it would require an application linking to  
ffmpeg's libraries to "just know" to call the startup call.  However,  
it might be worth considering putting WSAStartup into av_register_all 
() or some other ffmpeg library initialization call.
