I'm developing a free (in price) software which should be able to play mp3
files. I know ffmpeg is a great codec, so I want my application to link
against it.
Actually I have built some Dlls (avcodec-52.dll, avformat-52.dll,
avutil-50.dll) without  "--enable-gpl" and without "--enable-nofree". And
my application that linking against those dlls works well.
Since I don't want my software to be open-source or become under LGPL/GPL.
That means I don't want to distribute the source code of my application,
but I can distribute the source code of the ffmpeg dlls I use.
Can I compress them(my application and those dlls) together into a single
installation file and distribute it on the internet? Or what can I do?
