operating systems supported by ffmpeg

Hi all,
     My project needs the audio format conversions.
For the purpose i am using ffmpeg.exe and faad.exe.
I am working on Windows XP, but my client's opeating system is Open
Solaris.
I just needed to know whether this ffmpeg.exe and faad.exe would work
fine on Open Solaris also along with thier system commands.

I am working with ruby on rails 2.0.2...

Wouldn't this be a more appropriate question for ffmpeg's mailing lists?

You cannot use "windows" exe on any unix or linux system.
But ffmpeg is open source, so its easy enough to build configure and
install it on open solaris.
You may even be able to "find" a prebuilt image for it as well.'

Personally prefer linux on x86 myself.

Short answer: ffmpeg is available as a package for Solaris.

Long answer:

You can install ffmpeg on Solaris from Blastwave packages, but it's
horribly outdated. The next alternative is to recompile from source, but
from experience I can tell you that this is going to be a royal pain
because of ABI differences in gcc and the Sun compiler (used by
Blastwave). You'll need to recompile all ffmpeg dependencies from source
too.
