i saw in the license folder
that these libs: x264/x265 are GPL LICENSED
which as far as i know makes ffmpeg a GPL.

ok now i understand
most of the source is MIT/LGPL
but because few GPL libs
all the ffmpeg build become GPL which if very restricted and not allow closed source to use it.
( i'm not sure that all the downloaders are aware of ffmpeg is beeing GPL)

any way

can you please offer an easy way to build ffmpeg without those GPL libs ?
i really would preffer a batch file to do that
but a project file in CodeBlock (or some other free IDE) can also help,
or at least a detailed tutorial :)

thanks in advanced.
