New submission from Doug Stevenson <***@hyper-aware.com>:

switched to a free trial with a full paid unlocker app. It clearly uses ffmpeg
compiled with --enable-gpl and --enable-nonfree:

Hi, I'm the developer of VPlayer.
I'm sorry that it's too late to release the FFmpeg code.
You may find it in my blog now http://abitno.me/android-ndk-ffmpeg-for-vplayer

Here is the link to download http://abitno.me/ffmpeg.tar.bz2
