hillelben used Ask the Experts™
i want to add ffmpeg-php for windows and added php_ffmpeg.dll to php\ext and added this line to the php.ini

after i restarted apache i see that ffmpeg isn't listed in phpinfo and an error pops up saying
"The procedure entry point _zval_copy_ctor could not be located in the dynamic link library php5ts.dll"

anyone know how to fix this?

Where did you get your version?  And did you get the other programs that go with it?

Ok.  Did you get any installation instructions with ffmpeg?  All of the other pages about installing ffmpeg in Windows said that you needed other programs and the 'gd' extension enabled.  I don't know whether that was specific for their applications or not.  A lot of people said they had a lot of trouble getting this working for them.
