Sorry, I need to ask about that in more detail after more thought. There
are 2 separate issues here it seems...

   1. Whether I can use ffmpeg libraries to encode H264 without making my
   entire application GPL?
   2. Whether I need to pay for a H264 license

Is the situation I can use ffmpeg L-GPL if I pay for a H264 license, but
without buying that license I can only use H264 for full GPL? Or am I
totally misunderstanding the situation?
