Looks like another "company", that seems to have made a small career out 
of license violations: As I saw no real contact information apart from 
the support e-mail address, I did few whois-lookups, which revealed,
via few other addresses (pointing to China), and led to similar
clone-sites/companies offering software related to video conversion:

 * http://www.aone-soft.com/
 * http://www.screxpert.com/

Apart from FFmpeg and MPlayer violations, I noticed at least
LGPL'd libfame (http://fame.sourceforge.net/) being used without
credits in "Aone Software's" "Ultra RM Converter". Wouldn't be
surprised if there are more.


On an amusing sidenote, at least these rather obvious scammers admit
how good FFmpeg & co are: "Our team of senior tech members has 
designed many video & audio converting technology that have super
fast conversion speed and performance."

And I concur - good work, people! ;D
