If you choose to distribute a binary based on 
FFmpeg source code (like for example ffmpeg.exe), 
then please do not forget that you have to also 
distribute the (exact) source that was used to 
compile the binary.

And please understand that if you choose to 
compile ffmpeg.exe with "--enable-nonfree" it 
means that you cannot legally distribute the 
resulting binary.
