I see more code and easier circumvention of the GPL, but no merit.
Please be more specific.

I guess the biggest advantage of dynamic loading is that it can use the environment variable for finding the library, this approach is documented / encouraged in the NDI SDK.

Also the author of the ndi patches prefers this approach, that matters as well.

I am not sure I see a lot of difference when it comes to GPL circumvention, if the lib is in non-free, then the stuff becomes non-redistributable, period. Added complexity is marginal IMHO.
