-GStreamer is developed under the terms of the LGPL (see LICENSE file for details). Some of our plugins however rely on libraries which are available under i other licenses. This means that if you are using an application which has a non-GPL compatible license, for instance a closed-source application with GStreamer you have to make sure not to use GPL linked or derived plugins.
-When using GPL linked plugins GStreamer is for all practical reasons under the GPL itself.

+Disclaimer: The GStreamer team makes a real effort to make sure that
+the information in this file is as up-to-date and accurate as possible.
+However, this file may contain errors and omissions. Some dependant
+libraries change their licensing from version-to-version and some of
+the libraries listed here as LGPL were under the GPL license in
+older releases. Distributions which include GStreamer are responsible
+for ensuring that plugins are used in accordance with licensing terms
+and other laws.

+Unsure:
+
+mikmod libmikmod (http://mikmod.raphnet.net/)
+Seems a newer release of mikmod is LGPL, though it's listed as GPL by
+GStreamer.
+
+faad libfaad (http://www.audiocoding.com/)
+Faad is under this license (http://www.audiocoding.com/download.php) if
+using FAAD but GPL if using FAAD2. GStreamer seems to use FAAD2 if
+avaialable, then defaults to FAAD. Not sure how this should be
+described here.
+
+dirac (http://www.bbc.co.uk/rd/projects/dirac/)
+The sourceforge website claims it uses GPL, LGPL, and the Mozilla Public
+License 1.1. Not sure which parts GStreamer uses, and what licenses are
+inherited.
+
+effectv effectv (http://effectv.sourceforge.net/)
+The sourceforge website claims it uses GPL, though it is currently
+listed as an LGPL library in GStreamer.
