I make up my mind to create own MIDI player (standalone library) for Windows CE platforms based on Timidity,
but I have some problem with it. I intend to use this player in commercial projects and
I don't want to public source code of the player. Can I use Timidity with another license
(I understand that it will not be free of charge) in my project? Who dealt with the same issue
help me, please!
timidity is under the GPL. You can't release it under another license without the author's permission. It's best you use the e-mail addresses in the copyright headers (if they still work) or the mailing list - the authors don't check the forums, AFAIK.
Thanks for your answer.
I have one more question. Who is the author of the timidity? I havn't found any e-mails :(, may be I ommited something. How can I contacted with him?
If you have the timidity source, you'll notice that every .c/.h source file has a copyright header. You'll find the names of the copyright holders for that source file, and an e-mail address (which may not work anymore). Alternately, you could post to the mailing list, and see if the authors reply to you.
Thanks a lot
