I am kinda new to ffmpeg and linux. I have been trying to build ffmpeg as per the instruction given in the ffmpeg.org using shared library using latest ffmpeg source, msys and mingw. http://www.ffmpeg.org/general.html#SEC20 ,.  Everything works as per the instructions. But when I try to use the dll in a simple vc++ application (like output-example.c mentioned in the document) it comes up with an error, " The Program cant start because avcodec-52.dll is missing from your computer." When I built it, it created avcodec-53.dll. How can I fix this? Willing to provide more information on this if needed.
