Subject Re: is it legal to use FFmpeg?
Date Sun, 28 Sep 2008 11:21:08 GMT
GNU LGPLThe LGPL is ineligible primarily due to the restrictions it places
on larger works, violating the third license criterion. Therefore,
LGPL-licensed works must not be included in Apache products. i guess it's
end of story.We can't use ffmpeg and must find a substitute.
