A GUI is a graphical user interface that makes it easy for a user to work with FFmpeg. Since FFmpeg is open-source, various developers have built software to utilize it with simple GUIs.
Benefits to Using a GUI
Since FFmpeg is used through a command line interface (CLI), there is a relatively steep learning curve for users who are unfamiliar with this type of interface. Using a CLI requires that the user understand how to write commands with the proper language and syntax. Software that provides a GUI makes using FFmpeg as easy as clicking a few buttons and setting a few parameters.

Limitations to Using a GUI
Using a GUI allows the user to jump right into FFmpeg, but it obfuscates what’s happening “under the hood.” Some users may want to know the FFmpeg command generated by using the GUI, and that is not always accessible. Also, GUIs are not always up to date with the latest version of FFmpeg.
