You're right. The current version I've been using requires 
[vulkan-1.dll], but even if you do not have the file, it can be 
downloaded and installed in the FFMpeg directory and upon uninstall, can 
be deleted with the FFMpeg files. P.S. I am using the shared version 
from BtbN: https://github.com/BNtbN/FFmpeg-Builds/releases 
<https://github.com/BNtbN/FFmpeg-Builds/releases> (requires vulkan-1.dll).
