    I am just wondering if anyone knows if applications on the Mac App Store are allowed to include another binary in their resources folder that can be called using NSTask. Would be a nuisance if I couldn't use the FFmpeg command-line program for decoding.

    Maybe its too early to ask this question but I thought some apps had already been approved.

    Thanks for your help,

    Andrew

    One bundle, with nothing getting installed outside that bundle. Can you put FFmpeg into your application bundle?

    Yep, it is stored purely inside the bundle. I had to compile it statically so it wouldn't put the dynamic libraries in /usr/bin but that's no problem now.
