I have sent an email and they have replied. They promise to add credits,
LGPL license, source code and put a reference to FFmpeg on the Voltaic

"Resteranno per? gli altri Achei lunghi capelli,
finch? abbatteremo Troia: e se pure questi...
ma s?, sulle navi fuggite verso la patria terra!
Noi due, St?nelo e io, lotteremo, fino a che il termine
fatale d'Ilio troviamo, perch? con nume propizio venimmo." (Omero)
