Hi, I'm trying to use libflv in cygwin, so I build de library. The

so my question is how to convert from .so files to .dll.a
or how can I use directly the .so files.
If you built this as a DLL and just named it "libflv.so", rename it to
"libflv.dll". Then make sure the linker can find the file. If you
instead copied these files from some *NIX system, you'll need to rebuild
from source under Cygwin into a static library ("libflv.a") or a DLL
("cygflv.dll" - the preferred prefix for Cygwin DLLs is "cyg") with it's
companion import library ("libflv.dll.a").
