I have a question regarding FFmpeg binary distribution and libx265 and GPLv2/3
The FFmpeg documentation says that libx265 is GPLv2-or-later - https://www.ffmpeg.org/general.html#x265 - but the x265 project itself states it is GPLv2 (only) (when used in a Open Source project, and not using the commercial license) - https://www.x265.org/x265-licensing-faq/ . The practical implication of this for binary distribution, as understand it then (if the FFmpeg documentation is wrong), is that one can not release a distribution of FFMpeg under GPLv3 - only GPLv2, if including libx265. Or, Am I missing some reasoning regarding libx265 and FFmpeg binary distribution.
Note: for easier reasoning, let's avoid thinking about other libraries and their license, and just focus on using only libx265 with FFmpeg in a distribution.
