Stellar Phoenix Video Repair - LGPL/GPL violation

I just tried out some random video repair tool on the internet and noticed, that it comes with the ffmpeg and mplayer binaries.
There is no license, nor any mention on the website or in the installer.
Since it's shareware, there's no source code either.

Shame on them :(

In-case they take it down, I'll keep their installer as proof.

I tried to attach their eula.pdf to the ticket, but couldn't because Google doesn't support Captcha v1 anymore

I uploaded the eula and the installer to google drive (I'll leave it there for one year or so for you to download)

Their manual (it mentions the trademark, that's about it; it only does that in the english manual though):
