On Windows you can compile the Opus library either with the free mingw
port of gcc, or with Microsoft's Visual Studio.

To use mingw, download and run the installer, then launch the shell, cd
to the source directory and run either:



make -f Makefile.unix

To build with Visual Studio open the 'opus' solution file in the opus
source directory and build from that. Visual Studio 2010 or newer should
work, and the no-cost 'express edition' is fine.

Hope that's enough to get you started,
