[Libav-user] FFmpeg License Violation - What Are My Remedies?

I recently purchased an app from Google Play that incorporates the FFmpeg
library.  Because the app is a derivative work under the LGPLv2.1, I
believe I am entitled to a copy of the source code for the entire app.  I
have e-mailed the developer's support staff, but they are refusing to
release the source code.  I have cited the LGPL to them, but hey claim they
are required to provide only the source code for the FFmpeg library.  I
believe that they are in violation of the license and are violating both my
legal rights and those of the FFmpeg team.

What are my remedies in this situation?  What steps can I take (other than
hiring a lawyer) to assert my rights?  Who at FFmpeg can I notify of this
violation so that they can enforce their rights?

The app is Paper Camera by JFDP Labs.
