Note that there isn't a single "ffmpeg.dll", there are distinct  
avcodec.dll, avformat.dll, etc. I looked at your forum, and I'm not  
sure what exactly you expect in ffmpeg.dll. All ffmpeg distributions I  
know have separate libraries for the various ffmpeg components. Are  
you sure the ffmpeg.dll that someone built last year doesn't include  
more than just ffmpeg?

If you want to try to use it in your own project you should try  
linking your project to our versions of avcodec.lib, etc. Then placing  
the dlls beside your executable on wince may work.

Otherwise, if you want to try building ffmpeg from source, here is  
some advice:
- I've done the build on Linux. It can be done on Windows, but then  
you need to install Mingw and a lot of other stuff. OTOH, the same is  
true on Linux, so it may be a matter of taste.
- You want to install the arm-mingw32ce cross-compiler, from <http://cegcc.sourceforge.net/ 
- Next, you read the instructions at <http://ffmpeg.arrozcru.org/wiki/index.php

Windows Desktop, so you have to make mental translations at various
