H.264 decoding - license?

If I want to use ffmpeg for decoding an h.264 stream what license will that imply? GPL og LGPL? I understand that libx264 is used for encoding H.264 and that using this means you are under GPL, but does the same go for decoding?

the h264 decoder is lgpl. some optimizations are gpl though, so running the lgpl code will be slower...
