Thanks for your comment Ronald. The thing is I don't point to ffmpeg  
website to get the source. I have included an offer to distribute the  
source upon request, which is an alternative offered by the GPL  
license. The sources I have used to compile my binary are stored on a  
CD, and I can make a copy to anyone who requests it. Not sure this is  
what Diego was referring to...
