Not with any confidence.  The ffmpeg website (http://www.ffmpeg.org)
has a link to this page (http://ffmpeg.arrozcru.org/) which seems to
have binaries on it, but I don't use Windows so I have no idea if
they actually work or not.

You don't believe in making life easy for yourself, do you? :-)
Why are you turning stills into a video anyway?  Wouldn't it be easier
to save the webcam output as video (whatever format it claims to be)
and get ffmpeg to work on it directly?

You seem to have emailed me directly, not the list.  I've copied this
back to the list so Emile can see it too.
