I think I've found another entry for your hall of shame.

DVR-MS converter (http://www.dvr-ms.com/convert-to-mpeg.htm) uses ffmpeg but
does not acknowledge the fact - it provides a trivial GUI wrapper to allow
conversion of Media Center DVR-MS files to MPG

There is a file installed called codec.dll - renaming it to codec.exe and
running it gives the following info:

FFmpeg version SVN-rUNKNOWN, Copyright (c) 2000-2007 Fabrice Bellard, et al.

PS - thanks for all your work on ffmpeg - I still don't understand most of
what it does but have been able to use it for transcoding a few videos.
