I thought that's what I was doing. Now I noticed that I had a typo in my
code (was checking for avctx->codec->decode instead of
avctx->codec->encode). With this typo fixed everything is working fine,
and no need to reorder encoder and decoder initialization.
av_find_stream_info() now does the right thing.
I will send a new patchset shortly.
