This is my first project to code a scene change detection algorithm in C...and I have no idea about storing of the frames....

Store the frames in a 2D array, perhaps. One element per pixel.

thank you Moschops..

From which directory are you trying to run FFmpeg? Did you follow step 5 in the how-to, "Edit the Windows System PATH"?
