On the contrary it is possible to include this into Fedora. This app does NOT
do actual MPEG frame decoding, so I suspect that no nasty MPEG patents are
violated. I could be wrong here - I just quickly looked through the sources and
I didn't see any MPEG decoding components.

Also take a look at the contents of gstreamer-plugins-bad-free - you'll see the
demuxers for MPEG files as well. So demuxing and cheching the integrity of MPEG
frames is OK - encoding/decoding isn't.
