The main reason FFmpeg does not compile on Virtual Studio is 
that Virtual Studio does not support C (the programming language).
The second reason is that if we chose to support Virtual Studio 
instead of Ansi C, FFmpeg would only compile on one Operating 
System instead of all Operating Systems that were ever suggested.
(Note that there is at least one fine Ansi C-compatible compiler 
available on Windows.)

Please read the LGPL and the GPL to learn what you are allowed to 
do and what are you are not allowed to do with FFmpeg.

Assuming this was a user question, please read
