As was already discussed before, this is simply not true:
The GPLv2 (which is possibly the most often used license 
for FFmpeg but in any case a possible license) is not 
compatible with the AGPL.

This is unneeded for libopenjpeg and therefore not acceptable 
afaict. Is Grok part of any major distribution?
