ok. i've found the solution.

let's say, the code written by me (and also other developers who agree)
has a special license. it's based on GPL with one exception: doesn't allow
distributing binaries. Now, we solved it. Other code which comes from other
projects can stay GPL, we won't break licensing and go to jail.
but as the demuxers are key parts of mplayer, you even can't compile other
parts without it.

Gabu, please change dox & homepage as the following:

MPlayer is basicly GPL, but contains some non-GPL code which not allowed to
be distributed in binary form, and also contains the opendivx library which
has special license.

Is it ok, guys?
