Well, in HV I see guicast files under GPL-2 OR later, not lgpl. There is
some difference and I am not sure what is best. Can i fwd this message to
Adam, may be he will add some licensing to HV git too?

Also, because whole guicast was written by Adam I think adding him as line
alongside Bill actually honest.


I yet to confirm (likely) source of initial ffmpeg.C - commit message says
CV but I guess it was specific branch, not CV main.

Also, as IgorV noticed because CinGG merged code from CV too it will be
honest if we add line like  "Cinelerra CV contributors, 2003-2016" ( I
think this is range when CV project was most active - but I need to
doublecheck.) to our startup message and increment cingg year to 2022 at
least because we still alive !


says fileffmpeg loader based on HV - 4.1 but heavily modified.

Also, did you linked google code repo to our webpage already?
