Description Sven Gothel 2013-02-07 00:14:16 CET
This is essential for Windows and OSX,
maybe also helpful for some GNU/Linux machines.

However, only patent free codecs are allowed in such bundled native libav/ffmpeg.

Usefull resource:
http://libav.org/legal.html

If we want to bundle libav under the lgpl license we may start by
Compile Libav without "--enable-gpl" and without "--enable-nonfree"
and then follow the checklist inside the libav legal.html resource.

Ok but it would be fine to provide a script code path to re-enable GPL stuff for people who want to rebuild this feature and who are allowed to use them which is my case as my main project is under GPL v2.
