I thought the same as well but am not too much into the licencing terms...
I tried in vain finding any sources.
They do not ship ffmpeg directly (as a separate library). They modify the
source and use it statically linked in their projects.
This is a link to the IE ActiveX for playing the stream (displaying DVR
cams): http://www.dvrstation.com/pdvratl.php?vendor=0#version=1,0,1,26 This
is also the library I modded in order to use the decoder on Windows
platforms before I decided to spend some time to research the differences
in respect to the MPEG4 standard and use the stream in a Linux environment.

This is a link to a 64-bit Linux app:
http://pinetron.ru/files/software/cms-lite-linux.zip Never actually tried
it. The libpapi-shared.so.* files are clearly based on the ffmpeg source.

This is the android app: http://www.apkmonk.com/app/com.pinetron.TouchCMS/
One library in there for Arm, also clearly based on ffmpeg.
