    Hi Tyler,

    Ignore config_win.py. It is for using the prebuilts and stuff
    compiled with Visual C++. Visual C++ prebuilt compilation has not
    been maintained for awhile and is moot anyway since ffmpeg is not
    designed to compile with it. So add ffmpeg to config_mys.py
    instead. This will use msys/1.0/local/ stuff. You have to add a
    separate Dependency inststance for each shared library of ffmpeg.
    I have already added the ffmpeg libraries to dll.py, so look there
    for the names to use: AVCODEC, AVFORMAT and so on. I see I did not
    update the prebuilt-template\Config_Win.in for ffmpeg. It is used
    with the prebuilts.

Thanks Lenard, I'll try that tomorrow. Do you guys mind if I add a big documentation note to config_win.py that it hasn't been updated or maintained in awhile? Just so no one else goes down the same fruitless red brick road as I did, lol.



Please do. Obviously the note at the top about file searches being broken was too subtle a warning. If you do place the warning at the top just be sure to mention that setup_prebuilt() is still relevant and used.
