Apologies for the delay in replying but I've been away over the
holidays.  Happy New Year.

Thanks for the feedback.  The script is failing to copy an important
FFmpeg dll.  The fix is on line 1101:
-    $bindir/libmythswscale-?.dll .
+    $bindir/libmythswscale-?.dll $bindir/libmythpostproc-??.dll .
