Though, there *is* a loophole where, since you are not bundling or
distributing the code, you can design it to work with ffmpeg in
general and leave it up to the individual user to choose to configure
it with the GPL components enabled.
GPL/LGPL is not even the real issue (open source fighting over
licensing to bring one another down is like ghetto crime but that's a
different subject), The real problem is the patent. but again. you are
letting each user worry about that individually.
