Compiling in windows

Hey all,

I'm not sure if this is a C or C++ program i'm trying to compile, or if there's any difference between the two.

I'm trying to compile the ffmpeg source files (downloaded from here: http://ffmpeg.mplayerhq.hu/ffmpeg-checkout-snapshot.tar.bz2) for a windows platform.

I have Visual C++ 6 and .NET installed on my PC.

I don't know anything about compiling these programs.

How do I compile this program in the command line interface (IDE seems far more complicated at the moment)

Looking forward to your comments.
