 Thanks a lot for this bug report and I sincerely apologize if we have done
 anything at all that was not correct, that certainly was not the goal at
 all. We included ffmpeg pre-compiled in our SDK purely as a convenience
 for users (we have had hundreds of requests for this) and we took care to
 avoid misrepresenting anything.

 Ultimately we just have a very large number of people who want to use NDI
 with ffmpeg and do not want the hassle of working out how to compile it.
 Our preferred goal would always be to find a way for others to do this and
 we changed out header files to an MIT license and our run-time libraries
 are an entirely separate download that has entirely separate

 Regardless, if someone wants to contact us we're more than happy to do
 whatever the ffmpeg community wants here. Our ultimate goal is to make
 things easy for everyone and help anyone who wants to use NDI have an easy
 way to do so. Feel free to each out to me if anyone wants to talk about
 the best way to handle this and we are open to helping in any way we can
