GStreamer is developed under the terms of the LGPL (see LICENSE file for details). Some of our plugins however rely on libraries which are available under i other licenses. This means that if you are using an application which has a non-GPL compatible license, for instance a closed-source application with GStreamer you have to make sure not to use GPL linked or derived plugins.
When using GPL linked plugins GStreamer is for all practical reasons under the GPL itself.
Disclaimer: The GStreamer team makes a real effort to make sure that
the information in this file is as up-to-date and accurate as possible.
However, this file may contain errors and omissions. Some dependant
libraries change their licensing from version-to-version and some of
the libraries listed here as LGPL were under the GPL license in
older releases. Distributions which include GStreamer are responsible
for ensuring that plugins are used in accordance with licensing terms
and other laws.

Unsure:
mikmod libmikmod (http://mikmod.raphnet.net/)
Seems a newer release of mikmod is LGPL, though it's listed as GPL by
GStreamer.
faad libfaad (http://www.audiocoding.com/)
Faad is under this license (http://www.audiocoding.com/download.php) if
using FAAD but GPL if using FAAD2. GStreamer seems to use FAAD2 if
avaialable, then defaults to FAAD. Not sure how this should be
described here.
dirac (http://www.bbc.co.uk/rd/projects/dirac/)
The sourceforge website claims it uses GPL, LGPL, and the Mozilla Public
License 1.1. Not sure which parts GStreamer uses, and what licenses are
inherited.
effectv effectv (http://effectv.sourceforge.net/)
The sourceforge website claims it uses GPL, though it is currently
listed as an LGPL library in GStreamer.
