To clarify: along with does not mean it has to be in the same zip file
or anything, just that you need to distribute it somehow from the
"same place" where you offer the binary download. In particular you
should make it easy to get the _exact_ version of the source you used,
as opposed to whatever the current version on the ffmpeg download site
happens to be.
