I think that if FreePV gets integrated in VLC or other open
source player the interest on the project would grow,
other thing is to create a own FreePV format,
FreePV has the advantage that it can uses the
video card and it looks much better than flash
or java based viewers.

I think you are confused about the LGPL, nobody could read this
license and infer either of these things (it isn't a virus either).

I think that FreePV adoption is slowed by:

1. Nobody knowing about it - A release would be a good thing.
2. QuickTimeVR using the same mime-type as QuickTime-video,
requiring both to be handled by the same application.

Unlikely but possible is that developers are turned off by the LGPL
_not_ being the license that you think it is.
