What was wrong with Haralds answer?

Note that afaict, no lawyers are posting on this list, and only a lawyer can
give you a binding answer!
(I am not a lawyer.)

Apart from warranty, The GPL and the LGPL primarily restrict the distribution of
binaries, so if you distribute shell scripts (that I suppose are not based on
FFmpeg source code), I wonder what you are worried about.
