Please read the GPL and the LGPL (they are distributed 
together with the FFmpeg source code) and please see

This is - imo - contradicting:
Are you planning to sell 10 units of your software 
(that includes FFmpeg in some way)?
Or is the software (that includes FFmpeg) only 
used inside your company and never distributed 
to your customers?

(Don't forget that "usage" of FFmpeg is not 
limited in any way, only binary distribution is.)
