Hi,

here's another violator of the GPL license, and the binaries distributed are
even non-redistributable.

The product is Ultimate File Viewer (http://www.ultimatefileviewer.com).

Here's the config data from the distributed avcodec-52.dll:

--prefix=/ffmpeg/Binaries --disable-debug --disable-static --enable-shared
--enable-version3 --enable-avfilter --enable-memalign-hack --enable-avisynth
--enable-libgsm --enable-libopencore-amrnb --enable-libopencore-amrwb
--enable-libvpx --target-os=mingw32 --extra-cflags=-I/extlib/include
--extra-ldflags=-L/extlib/lib --enable-libmp3lame --enable-libtheora
--enable-libvorbis --enable-gpl --enable-libx264 --enable-libxvid
--enable-libfaad --enable-nonfree --enable-libfaac

libavcodec license: nonfree and unredistributable


They claim to have source available on their site, but don't.
