see http://bugs.debian.org/522373 for details, but please DO NOT
followup there. the situation is already messy enough.

BTW, not all encoders have been removed. You can see the list of formats
and codecs with 'ffmpeg -formats'.

In any case, your frontend should really handle the case that a specific
codec is not in ffmpeg.

you have several options:

 - compile from source yourself
 - help debimedia: http://wiki.debian.org/DebianMultimedia/debimedia
