It’s basically rather easy. You only need to tell FFmpeg to use it while linking and you can then simply use the H.264 encoder and FFmpeg will use OpenH264 for you.
Just add the flag “—enable-libopenh264” and add some extra linked flags to tell FFmpeg where to look for the OpenH264 library “—extra-ldflags=<path to OpenH264 lib here>” while compiling.

Works like a charm!
