Licence to use ffmpeg for corporate use

Post by Trev » Fri Jul 05, 2019 8:03 am

Hi, I just wanted to find out if it is possible in order to purchase a license for ffmpeg.

I am working for a corporate where we need to convert *.nmf files into *.wav files.

Has anyone used it in the corporate space and what all do we need to do this? This software is outstanding and is exactly what we need I just need to now know how we can use it in the corporate space.

Regards,

Trev

Thanks for the link but I don't believe that page is particularly clear. As best I can tell it confirms my belief that FFmpeg would have no issue using the flags above and the risks would be entirely MPEG LA pursuing based on their H.264 patent?

Page is clear, license is clear, patent pool is out of ffmpeg area unless you are using native ffmpeg encoder/decoder - for H.264 ffmpeg use external libraries and software license is associated with those libraries not ffmpeg - H.264 patent pool should not apply for https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenH264 , if you follow Cisco requirements (use their binary for example library). You should have legal department and legal department should analyse license conditions not you.
