License isn't too important, just think of DivX etc.
Main problem that no VfW or DShow codec DLL for Sorenson format.
They have it built-in into quicktime4windows EXE file, so we can't use it.
Maybe a very good win32 cracker guy can separate it, but we can't.
Same applies for realvideo/realaudio files. There is no codec DLL for those.

It's planned in the near future
(just after fileformat-dependant code separated from mplayer.c main core)
