Depending on what shell you're using, you should have something like $PATH in your environment that provides pathnames to directories containing the commands you normally run. On UNIX and Linux systems, PATH is a colon separated list of directories; on Windows systems it is frequently a semicolon separated list of directories. Some shells on Windows internally convert slashes in pathnames to backslashes; some don't.

Try the command:
echo $PATH

in your shell. If it is there, try the command:

matching the use of slashes or backslashes in existing entries in $PATH. You should then be able to just run ffmpeg or ffmpeg.exe to run the command in any subshell of your current shell.

Look at the man page for your shell. There should be an initialization file (such as $HOME/ that will be run when you login. You can set $PATH there to add that directory to your $PATH for all later shells after you log out and log back in to your system.

winff - video and audio batch converter using ffmpeg SYNOPSIS
This manual page documents briefly the winff command. This manual page was written for the Debian(TM) distribution because the original program does not have a manual page. Instead, it has documentation pdf format; see below. WinFF is a graphical user interface for the command line video converter ffmpeg. It runs ffmpeg from the command line. So, you just pick your files and it does the rest. WinFF doesn't actually convert any video files. It just runs ffmpeg. Therefore, It will convert any video file that ffmpeg will convert. Conversely, if ffmpeg will not convert the file, then WinFF will not either. SEE ALSO
For more details, you should have a look at the pdf manual, available at /usr/share/doc/winff/winff.pdf AUTHOR
