Superb project but 99% of users won't have a clue how to use it or know what a command line is! Pazera MP4 Converter is my recommended GUI for that group of folks. My quibble is Ffmeg can deinterlace, but there must be an easier way to ivtc an NTSC based single Bob file source. Anyway I will master it someday using decimate in my script.
For those wanting one which will work in XP, link below.

Superb project as usual. Do anyone know where I can find unofficial builds that include ALL the codecs? (non-free stuff, libfdk_acc, VAAPI/GPU encoding, etc etc) Can be Linux or Windows version, doesn't matter (Wine can run EXE's just fine)

Just tried to update ffmpeg.exe 4.1.4 x64 static executable in myFFpmeg 3.6.2 x64 and get the error "The found file is not a FFmpeg.exe file" and I'm not sure what that means, whether it's an ffmpeg or myFFmpeg issue.
