After inputing "-threads auto" option for ffmpeg as x264, mencode by mistaken.
I got ffmpeg crashed. After checking, I got the reason is ffmpeg get
thread_count to zero in case of this usage. 

The attached patch will check and restrict the thread_count range from 1 to
FF_THREAD_MAX. Maybe it's better to support auto option like x264?
