 > Hi @cehoyos – I’m afraid we don’t understand your request.  The latest
 binary (posted here: https://github.com/awslabs/aws-fpga-app-
 notes/blob/master/reInvent17_Developer_Workshop/ffmpeg/ffmpeg) only
 contains the H.265 encoder.  Please review and confirm this is ok.  If
 desired, we can remove the old binary from GitHub history.
 I believe you would either have to remove all binaries based on FFmpeg
 source code from github (and any other places where you distribute
 binaries based on FFmpeg) forever or provide the patch that implements the
 ''Xilinx Advanced Video Codec (H.264) Encoder'' but I am not a lawyer and
 we have no means to go after copyright violators so if you do neither, we
 just leave this ticket open.
