Acknowledgement Fail

Something different this time:

Gotta point out that lame commercial excuse of Visual Basic .net software at www.video-download-capture.com. It's using a version of ffmpeg (ffmpeg.exe, see www.ffmpeg.org) renamed to ApowersoftC.exe ('C' as in converter) without providing any kind of license.txt or even mentioning the respectable ffmpeg project anywhere.

Background: There's much of a chance that ffmpeg - with their crazy code monkeys - or likely ffdshow is also the driving force behind your daily video watching pleasure. And it's not right to just take, then rename it to make it look like part of the product, and build commercial junk around it without saying a word.

At the end of the day this is another epic FAIL.
