The software underlying ffmpeg exists as several libraries, called (if I remember correctly) avcodec, avformat, avfilter and avutil. On linux systems they tend to be called "libavformat" etc, on windows they are often compiled into the executable but are sometimes found as "avformat.dll" or similar.
It is possible to use these libraries independently of ffmpeg, but the documentation is extremely thin and you will need to know what you're doing. Most of the projects that use them seem to hire members of the informal group that works on them.
