I've kept track of several recent ones on MPlayer's related projects page:
* Konvertor http://www.konvertor.net/indexe.html
Multimedia file conversion utility containing FFmpeg that fails to give
credit. They even have our own unmodified windows-all codec pack for
* Replay Converter http://applian.com/replay-converter/index.php
Multimedia file conversion utility containing MEncoder that fails to give
* MP4Converter http://www.mp4converter.net/dvd-to-appletv-converter-mac.html
Multimedia file conversion utility containing a renamed FFmpeg binary that
fails to give credit.
* GOM Player http://gomplayer.com/
Multimedia player containing FFmpeg that fails to give credit. They do
include a copy of the LGPL, but don't mention FFmpeg. The only reference to
FFmpeg seems to be this post: http://www.gomplayer.com/forum/viewtopic.html?t=435.
Feel free to add them to roundup. I'm planning to contact their authors about
this but it's not my top priority.

oppression to develop psychic muscles.
