Just a few words from http://www.multimediaware.com/qv/qvdoc.htm:

This product uses parts of FFmpeg, Copyright (c) Fabrice Bellard. FFmpeg is available under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public License Source code of FFmpeg can be downloaded from http://ffmpeg.org or is available upon request. The FFmpeg files were used without modification in this product.

I would say that this is not enough and the product ignores all requirements from the fourth section of the GNU LGPL v2.1.

To be more precise the violations apply to section 4 of the GNU LGPL v3 or to some requirements of section 6 of the GNU LGPL v2.1 (6a, for example).
