[FFmpeg-user] If FFmpeg compatible with Windows Docker ?

During further research I have come across this post -


Which suggests that ffmpeg.exe can run only if two dlls - avicap32.dll and
msvfw32.dll are present on your windows machine, they'll generally be in
System32 folder.

I copied these two from working box to windows docker container where these
files weren't present, and ffmpeg started working after that.

Has anyone come across this dependency to run ffmpeg.exe in past ? I
thought ffmpeg static binary wouldn't need anything else to run itself.
