Issue

To install ffmpeg in Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard, I download the Windows EXE Files in http://ffmpeg.org/download.html#build-windows, and install successfully. But when I open the ffmpeg, a message says that MFPlat.dll is missing.

Solution

MFPlat.DLL is the dll of Windows Media Player. Windows Media Player 11 player is not installed by default in Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard. We can install it. Follow these steps below:

  1. Go to Server Manager.
  2. Click Features → Add Features.
  3. Check "Desktop Experience" and "Quality Windows Audio Video Experience".
  4. Click "Install".
  5. After all, restart the computer.
