Comment (by anssi):

 I've contacted them and they assured me it (missing license, missing
 source) will be fixed ASAP, but we'll see.

 The transcoders are built with options making them GPLv3, with which just
 a written offer for source code is not enough for non-physical products
 AFAICS (sec 6(b)).
