I believe the Zeranoe binaries also come with the command 
line tool "ffmpeg.exe" linked against the very library 
you tested.
Does h264 encoding with ffmpeg.exe work?

Note that we (FFmpeg developers) are not Zeranoe, this 
is not the Zeranoe mailing list. There is a Zeranoe 
forum, on this mailing list, it is (mostly) expected 
that you compile FFmpeg yourself.
(Especially if you have an issue that we cannot 
reproduce with self-compiled binaries)
