FFmpeg is not part of MinimStreamer and is not required by MinimStreamer. MinimStreamer can be configured to use FFmpeg if it is available on the user's system. There are no legal issues for a user who downloads FFmpeg and installs it on their system.

I understand. I'm surprised and a little embarassed I didn't figure it out in the first place.

A URL like this would be needed:

http://127.0.0.1:9790/minimstreamer/*/myStreamID/$!transcode.L16
http://127.0.0.1:9790/minimstreamer/*/myStreamID/$!transcode.L24

where myStreamID is the stream ID from the .m3u file.

Forgive me, but I'm largely ignorant of the technology here and am thus completely baffled. What is the stream ID in the m3u file? Some m3u files seem just to consist in http URLs and nothing more. The one for a station I listen to a lot is:
#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:-1,Venice Classic Radio Italia * European Server
http://109.123.116.202:8020/stream
#EXTINF:-1,Venice Classic Radio Italia * European Server
http://109.123.116.202:8022/stream
#EXTINF:-1,Venice Classic Radio Italia * European Server
http://109.123.116.202:8010/stream
#EXTINF:-1,Venice Classic Radio Italia * USA Server
http://174.36.206.197:8000/stream

Another is just:
http://stream.srg-ssr.ch/m/rsc_de/aacp_96
http://stream.srg-ssr.ch/m/rsc_de/aacp_96

How do I find the ID?

It would be great if someone could write a quick guide to setting up HQPlayer to play these kinds of internet stations. It presumably involves MinimStreamer downloading and transcoding to flac, and passing the http URL on to HQPlayer, but the details elude me after much googling.

The stream ID is explained in this section.
