 Summary of the bug:
 While gstreamer has a omxh264enc sinc which does use the raspberry pi's
 built in h264 hardware encoder, ffmpeg will not use this one.

 How to reproduce:
 % ffmpeg -i input -c:v libx264 ...
 ffmpeg version <any>

 Now that there's a floss driver, I hope such an enhancemant could be done.

 git of gst-omx: http://cgit.freedesktop.org/gstreamer/gst-omx/
 Raspberry Pi driver announcement: http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/6561

 Beware, the raspberry pi page is barely useable today (April 1st).
