     13You basically have two options for a compiler: mingw "mainline" or mingw-w64.  Both offer working gcc's for windows.  The latter tends to be slightly more up to date than the former, and offer a few more libraries, like DirectShow access.  The instructions here are basically for the former, but the two are interchangeable.

    39 Also NB that dshow devices need you to use mingw-w64 as the compiler (or cross compiler), so straight MinGW won't have these devices available.
