If you choose to distribute ffmpeg.exe (no matter if 
together with your application or as a standalone download), 
you have to "accompany" the binary distribution with the 
source code or give "equivalent access", ie you have to make 
the exact sources that were used to build ffmpeg.exe 
available together with the binary.
