GStreamer is developed under the terms of the LGPL (see LICENSE file for 
details). Some of our plug-ins however rely on libraries which are available 
under 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 plug-ins.
When using GPL-linked plug-ins, GStreamer is for all practical reasons 
under the GPL itself.
