You are only allowed to distribute binaries based on FFmpeg source
code if you follow the requirements of the GPL or the LGPL depending
on compile time options.

Since you are using the word "use" three times in your question:
Usage of FFmpeg is not restricted as long as you agree with the
no-warranty clause of the (L)GPL.

That would be me.

Having said all this: You may not be interested in FFmpeg's license
terms but of those of third parties that we don't represent (and
don't know). You will have to ask your ip lawyer for more information.
