And I just found on the ffmpeg website itself lol on the big heading
"Q: Is it perfectly alright to incorporate the whole FFmpeg core into
my own commercial product?
A: You might have a problem here. There have been cases where
companies have used FFmpeg in their products. These companies found
out that once you start trying to make money from patented
technologies, the owners of the patents will come after their
licensing fees. Notably, MPEG LA is vigilant and diligent about
collecting for MPEG-related technologies."
