A follow up to my previous message, which you might find useful:
* There is another file that is GPLv2+ that is compiled by default. It
is libpostproc/postprocess.h. It is just a bunch of constants, so I
don't think that is a problem, but you might want to know.
It is used by cmdutils.c:
dmg at i:/tmp/ffmpeg$ grep post cmdutils.c
* I am surprised that we found no single file under the version 3 of the
GPL or LGPL.
* These are files that do not have a license:
The includes are very simple, but you might want to look into the .c
files. If you want the full listing of files and their licenses, I will
be happy to send it.
