Good morning Diego,

I've managed to move that encoder site to our live server. New URL is:
But please don't list it on your projects page as I'm not the one to  
decide about that and need
to speak to my bosses first.

Also, I'd like to thank you for all help you gave me with that project  
and apologize for all
troubles caused. In exchange I'm going to maintain mac binary packages  
of FFmpeg.
It is going to be ready in couple of weeks. I will let you know the  
exact URL when it's ready.

Kind regards,
