     72Alternatively, you can install the MSYS2 system:
     73
     74https://msys2.github.io/
     75
     76MSYS2 comes with a package management system called {{{pacman}}} adopted from Arch Linux, and allows to easily install binary packages from the commandline. To compile FFmpeg, you need to install the mingw-w64 GCC environment (either in the i686 or x86_x64 flavor). Use one of the commands:
     77{{{
     78pacman -S mingw-w64-x86_64-gcc
     79pacman -S mingw-w64-i686-gcc
     80}}}
     81
     82and run the {{{mingw32_shell.bat}}} or {{{mingw64_shell.bat}}} command in the MSYS2 installation home. If you use MSYS2 many packages can be easily installed by using {{{pacman}}} (for example {{{pacman -S pkg-config}}}).
