Comment (by cehoyos):

 Installer is Archimedia_Master_Player_x86_v2.2.1.21.exe, 245771080 bytes,
 md5sum ece44f5df8c862114047750fbaa531a8
 Several dll's that are installed depend on libavcodec which was compiled
 with "--enable-gpl". Installation shows no software license afaict, the
 copyright notice in one of the installed application says "This computer
 program and its associated software libraries are protected by copyright
 law and international treaties. Unauthorised reproduction, distribution or
 reverse engineering of this program, its source code and libraries is
 prohibited by law. Kakadu Software, MXFLib and FFmpeg Libraries used under
 their respective licenses."
