I need not only the decoder, but the encoder as well. I read the link sent...I wasn't clear on it -- is the encoder under GPL? If so, do you have any idea what other commercial outfits are using the h.264 encoding? Surely they aren't all rolling their own h.264 codec...

Apologies, between the project history someone posted a week ago, documentation, library naming conventions, the mailing list names, and that Googling info is nearly always most useful searching on "Libav" rather than "FFmpeg", (not to mention having looked at code for WAY too long in the past several days), I mixed them up. My heart was in the right place though...sorry about that.
