  1. All builds are licensed as GPL 3.0.
  2. Static builds include all components linked into the executable, while shared builds rely on libraries (.dll or .dylib) to operate. Most users should use the static build, while developers need to use the shared builds (text copied & modified from Zeranoe)

For macOS builds, please check out FYI, it’s easy to build FFmpeg for macOS using homebrew – I’ve written about it here. Thank you to ZeranoeRDP, and media-autobuild-suite for all the help.
