Yes it is there.  I can convert by command line but just can't get the batch to work.  I replaced : with " and the screen flashed a 2nd command prompt flashed, closed and back to enter any key to continue.  Nothing happened.

Is your input file in the c:/ffmpeg/bin directory?
If not, then ffmpeg won't find it.

If you have the input file in the same directory where you have the 
batch file, remove the cd command and then write:

c:/ffmpeg/bin/ffmpeg -i %filename% %outputfilename%
