I'm happy to see that ProRes decode support is now available. That's
awesome. What's the difference between the GPL and LGPL versions?

The only difference I can see (from avconv -codecs) is one supports
"direct rendering method 1" and the other doesn't. That same one is
labeled "iCodec Pro."

Anxiously awaiting a ProRes ENCODER...
