Check doc/examples in the source dir, also doxygen documentation is
fairly complete and should work as reference.

Regarding a libav* coding how-to, we could start a section on the
wiki, let me know if you need something specific.
ffmpeg-user random tip #1
The -b:v (bitrate) and -b:a (audio bitrate) ffmpeg options take as
argument a bitrate expressed in bits per second, and not in Kbits per
second as in previous versions. Change your command lines accordingly.
