In this particular case, there may be a more efficient way: the application
in question is sold on Google Play, any copyright holder of the distributed
version of ffmpeg would be entitled to get it taken down by the market

Of course, it would require very careful examination to be sure that there
is indeed infringement. A verbatim copy of the mails requesting the source
code and their replies would be an absolute prerequisite.
