Ok, don't totally know what you're saying. I have an mkv file that I need
to convert to an mp4 and I was told on reddit that using ffmpeg is the best
way to do that. I downloaded version 20200721 for windows 10 64 bit static.
I'll just say what the In the tutorial it instructed me to then move the
files from the bin, to a folder I created on my hard drive. Then I was
instructed to edit the system environment variables to add the folder I had
just moved the contents of the download to. Then you are supposed to type
the location of the folder, copy and paste it into the cmd prompt, but I
keep getting the error, "'C:\ffmpeg' is not recognized as an internal or
external command," Apparently following this tutorial should've helped me
download/install this program. Please be patient with me, this is the first
I've heard of the program and I really need to know how to use it for
something I'm working on.
operable program or batch file.
