There's the following paragraph in the ffmpeg's LICENSE file:

 "The nonfree external library libfaac can be hooked up in FFmpeg. You need
  to pass --enable-nonfree to configure to enable it. Employ this option
  with care as FFmpeg then becomes nonfree and unredistributable."

Applying the FSDG, does it fall under:

 "What would be unacceptable is for the documentation to give people
  instructions for installing a nonfree program on the system, or mention
  conveniences they might gain by doing so."

or under:

 "For a borderline case, a clear and serious exhortation not to use the
  nonfree program would move it to the acceptable side of the line."
