            Bug ID: 830
           Summary: Windows builds lack an installer
           Product: Libav
           Version: 11
          Hardware: Other
                OS: Windows
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: ---
         Component: release
          Assignee: bugzilla at libav.org
          Reporter: michel.gutierrez at gmail.com

The generated Windows builds at http://builds.libav.org/windows/release-gpl/
offer a unix-over-windows directory structure that is not convenient for
regular, non-developer users.

A standard EXE setup program would be very helpful to many.

I suggest using INNO (http://www.jrsoftware.org/isinfo.php). This is an open
source tool to generate a setup exe file. It's easy to configure (it just needs
a simple manifest file) and can be generated from a Linux command line (using
Wine). It also can handle both 32 and 64 bits in a single delivery so users do
not have to care what processor they are running on.

I can help on this if needed.
