depending on your Windows bits (32/64)
If you don't have such folders, this is the issue (which may imply an issue during installation).
For now we can install these manually.
3. Download the FFmpeg package from
Download version 4.0, not the latest 4.0.2
4. Create the missing FFmpeg folder in your roaming folder
5. Extract the zip package into the folder so the the README.txt file path looks like
That's it. Restart the program and try now.
Let me know please
