You've definitely understood things - my concern is to make sure that
we've understood your use case. The question of LGPL in an Apache
product is not an easy one. Can I see the source code to understand
how ffmpeg is hooked in and then make sure that there is a veto on
using ffmpeg?

Also, referencing Luciano's reply, are there any other issues I can
help with while I'm here?
