Hi
FFMPEG is an opensource software for video and audio processing and is designed in c and compiled by MinGW32 on Linux machines.
I want to use this software on windows platform. when i open the folder of the software, i will encounter many headers and .c files in different forlders. They are not in form of a project and i dont know how can i combine them together and recompile them in windows. Have you encountered in such problem and do you have any idea?

There's probably a makefile of some kind. Check the ffmpeg developers documentation for details on how to build it. Project files are not essential to programming and not all compilers support or need them.
