There is nothing stopping you from using your licensed plugin with these
players. There is only a problem as far as I can see it, if you try to
distribute the player and plugin
How does the GPL stop me from playing patent protected files in my GPL
player if I have the correct libraries? From my knowledge the GPL says
nothing about use, only about distribution.
