[FFmpeg-devel] Question about porting H264 Decoder into pure JAVA?

      I have programming as one of my hobbies. And I have ported H264 decoder code of FFmpeg and other necessary dependencies into pure JAVA language.
( Because I have not seen pure JAVA H264 decoder library that can decode High Profile anywhere so I decided to port it from FFmpeg ).
I think my work is done for me, but I do not know what is the right thing to do. Do I need to distribute source code my ported JAVA library back anywhere?
( As I saw that FFmpeg is GPL, right? I do not know much about GPL but it seems like if I modified some part of FFmpeg, then I have to distribute source code or something. )
      Please guide me if I have to do such thing.
Thank you very much,
Chulayuth A.
