Greetings to the team,

The purpose of this mail is to seek for information related to ffmpeg library license usage.

Basically, we have compiled that ffmpeg library source code to make it compatible with Android and created an executable of it.

Then in our functionality in the app, we pass the images to that executable through command line parameters and created a video as a result.

The app will be free to use in the market after the launch.

So we really want to know that under which license we should use it: GPL or LGPL and what we need to do to avoid any legal factors in the future.

We hope that we are using the library for our work and also our app will be free in the market. So we are not breaking any license terms.
