This still seems to contain closed source spectrum analyzer code without any kind of reference where it is from.

Technically I don't think you're allowed to distribute that binary without providing the source for your plugin too, so you should probably take down those links, update the zip with the source, and then reupload them.

do you read "readme.txt" carefully? those files are not parts of mplayer. all modifications on mplayer are opend except my own components.

And I guess you didn't read the GPL carefully in this case.

Most precisely the part linking with non-GPLed (your code)

No matter how you justify it, your code is still illegal. Full human readable source code must be released or actions must be ceased and desisted, under the vanilla GPL.

This appears to be a GPL violation, so I removed the links (TOS 9). Keeping the thread some someone can explain the GPL as needed.

I think you misunderstand the terms under which you are allowed to use mplayer in your program.  You can do so only if you also open source all the code you use with it.  So if your build instructions involve using a binary like "spectrum_analyzer.lib", then you're violating their license and should not be distributing your binary.  Of course, you're welcome to keep using your program, you just shouldn't allow other people to use it.  Is that more clear?

spectrum_analyzer is developed by myself, it's free for commercial or non-commercial. but this component was taked me more time to develop. so, it's sealed.
