I know that FFmpeg supports libx264. 
However, I want to use this in a commercial product. 
I know you can get a commercial license for 
libx264 from the company CoreCodec, 
and we are planning on paying all the legal patent fees.

Can libx264 be compiled into FFmpeg? 
If not, what are my options? 
Can it peacfully co-exist with 
the LGPL version of FFmpeg libraries?

Are there other potential patent 
problems using FFmpeg?

Thanks in advance for you help,

Dan Stuart
