  • Well, install the VC++ Redistributable. It isn't that hard to find.

    But this isn't the place to ask, you should have asked at the siftmotionffmpeg support forums or whatever they used.

  • Hi,


    According to your description and Sheng's suggestion ,it seems that your thread is not about C++ devepolment. So I will move it to the Off-Topic forum. Thanks for your understanding.
