-		This company stole the <a href="http://xvid.org">Xvid</a> MPEG-4 video codec
-		(GPL), and promoted it as its own open source codec, "inspired" by Xvid.
-		It is a 1:1 copy, however.</li>

-		Hardware DVD and DivX player vendor that stole (at least) MPlayer subtitle

-	<li><a href="http://www.nvideo-tech.com/products.htm" rel="nofollow">NPlayer</a><br>
-		This commercial Windows program tries to access MPlayer config files on
-		startup through their Unix (!) path. Incredibly cheap and unprofessional
-		ripoff.</li>

-	There used to be some license problems, but now they seem to be GPL-compliant:
-	<li><a href="http://os2.kiev.ua/en/wv.php">WarpVision Player</a><br>
-		This OS/2 media player is heavily based on MPlayer and a few
-		other free multimedia players, but did not give credit nor

-	<li><a href="http://ps2reality.net">PS2 MediaPlayer</a><br>

-		Multimedia file conversion utility containing FFmpeg that in
