ffmpeg not working with the windows docker container

Just run any command.
ffmpeg won't return any output.
But Windows returns the error -1073741701
Implies required dll’s is/are missing.
FFmpeg has the dependency on the following dll’s

  1. avicap32.dll
  2. msvfw32.dll

How can I resolve this issue?

Those libraries are available in a normal Windows installation, so if your environment doesn't have them, its not quite compatible.

From what I can tell, both of those are only used by the vfwcap input device, you could simply build ffmpeg without that component to avoid this issue.

Is there any way to do it in a docker file.

It is not a bug that FFmpeg by default depends on some system libraries.
