I just tried it to make this a little faster:
- license isn't visible in the UI of the demo
- source code offer isn't visible anywhere in the UI of the demo
(should be part of license / link to license text)
- no FFmpeg credits in the UI

All I find is a link to your website, which acknowledges the use of FFmpeg, but:
- fails to provide credit to "the FFmpeg authors" + link to us
- fails to mention license
- fails to mention the offer of source code

Diego probably refers to the above, and possibly more, as for why you
are not 100% in compliance yet. Hopefully this helps.

Ronald, who should start charging for legal fees...
