Interesting - may I ask how you know that --enable-gpl is used in binary ?

comment:2 by boxerab, 5 years ago

The PDF user manual mentions FFMpeg in the table of contents, pointing to page 4 which holds the license information, but on page 4, there is no mention of FFMpeg.

Run "strings" on the binary.

Cool, thanks!

comment:5 by boxerab, 5 years ago

Would --enable-gpl be used to get access to the GPL H.264 codec ? Why would they need to enable gpl for commercial product? Just curious.

Dunno, there's a full copy of FFmpeg in there so who knows what components they are using.

OK. So, if they do enable GPL, then they must share the rest of the source code if asked by user
