More and better documentation for FFmpeg is needed and welcome.  Both
user and developer documentation could be improved and your
contributions will be appreciated.

If you wish to extend the developer documentation then you should get
familiar with doxygen and work on the parts of the code that don't have
doxygen comments yet.

For user documentation, look at the doc/ directory and get familiar with
what we already have.  Also check out the MPlayer manual page, it
documents the libavcodec options.

If you need help and/or have further questions, speak up here, we'll
assist you as good as we can.
