    33Basically, cross compiling FFmpeg for windows means that you use a special version of the gcc compiler (and related tools) that output a working windows executable when they're done.  You can copy it to your windows box and then use it (or use wine to run it under linux, but that kind of defeats the point).

     5This is sometimes easier than using a "native" compilation in windows because some dependencies' configure scripts accept a cross compiler more readily than a native windows mingw gcc, etc.  It also may be "faster" than using mingw's gcc in windows, for whatever reason gcc seems faster in linux.
