What is the difference between the file placed here on MTS and those that are on your github page? Is it the same application?

I'd just like to say thank you for this. I usually keep on top of my mods quite well but this still found two conflicting files I didn't know about and it alerted me to having the same door CC saved in two different folders.

When I try to run this, I get an error stating: "The code execution cannot proceed because ffmpeg.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem." I have the ffmpeg.dll file, and I did try reinstalling. I still have this error. Any idea how to solve this?

UPDATE: I absolutely love this program. I didn't realized that I had so many copies of the same CC !!! After deleting the copies my game ran so much smoother and faster. Would there happen to be plans to do game Mods as well?
