Video texture help needed... I'm dumb

Ok, sooo
Well I have a good bad idea and yet again don’t know what I’m doing…
I want to get the video texture example file to work so i downloaded the file needed but am confused of what I’m supposed to selected in the preference panel for armory…

these are the instructions,

  1. Install ffmpeg binaries from https://ffmpeg.org
  2. Point ‘Edit - Preferences… - Add-ons - Armory - Advanced - FFMPEG Path’ to ffmpeg binary
  3. Play!
  4. During the first build, video processing may take a minute

Im not sure what the ffmpeg binary is…
This is the file:

Hi,

This is what the short readme means:

Assuming you are using a Windows machine,

  1. Download and extract the ffmpeg binaries. (Binaries means in general executables) from here ffmpeg binary. You may choose a release version with the name ffmpeg-release-full.7z

  2. In the Blender preferences, open up Armory add-on, and choose the path for the extracted file at fmpeg-release-full/bin/ffmpeg.exe

  3. Save the preferences.

Note that this would work only when running/ publishing for Browser HTML5 or Windows(C). However, when I tried the example, unfortunately the movie resulted in a still frame on the browser. I believe it must be due to recent changes in the Chorme media Auto-Play settings.
