Installation for the Window users

Installing the software with Linuxbrew on Windows with a Linux app

While waiting for a «Winbrew», please follow the instructions given at Installation for the Linux users in this Cookbook. This works now fine on both Windows 10 Pro and Home (we have tested it successfully on Debian 9.5 and on Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS).

choco install ffmpeg
