Crop, combine, collage, phototint, add animated characters, use
as backdrop or rear projection in film, just about anything you can
do with it in Gimp or Inkscape, etc, etc.
All of those imply a derivative or combined work.
The "sync audio to video" requirement is a bit bizarre actually,
since sampling specific says it is not sufficiently transformative
to be allowed (i.e. the opposite stance).
Clearly they see that as a grey area. I think it also has to do
with the pragmatic point that people pay a lot for those kind
of rights, and they want to provide means of capturing those
