Hello Spencer,

I run ffmpeg on Win10 but have never used the file you mention to install
it (wzdu53.exe). I always get the latest build from here:
http://ffmpeg.org/download.html. If you click onto the Windows icon it gets
you here: https://ffmpeg.zeranoe.com/builds/ where you can access the
Windows builds for the various architectures (I used the 64bit version).
The zip file unzips into a self contained directory which is nice if you
want to use different versions of ffmpeg for whatever reason. This is
ffmpeg via the command line so I'm not sure if you're running it
differently on your machine.

Hopefully this helps. If you need the file you referenced to do the install
(maybe it installs other components that you need?) then hopefully someone
else who has knowledge of installing ffmpeg with that file responds shortly.
