Which has a license not allowing me to use this code in my commercial
So far nobody has been kind enough I guess to write a libavcodec LGPL
version of the encoder.
The H264 codec is quite complicated, and I think it will still take
some time before someone writes a GPL version of the codec. It's
still a lot of work i suspect.
