If you are doing things in code rather than using the ffmpeg frontend, 
you're probably looking for libavcodec and libavformat (the libraries 
that do the work for ffmpeg).  There's not a lot out there in the way of 
up-to-date tutorial material that I can find but I did find this: 

It may give you some ideas.  I just skimmed it so I can't attest to its 
completeness, though I did notice that at the beginning of each of his 
code listings there is an extraneous "[cpp]" string.  These are probably 
tags from a source-code highlighting plugin he used to use on his blog.  
Just ignore them.
