if thread support is enabled, enc->thread_count is setted by
avcodec_thread_init, and if this number is greater than THREADS_MAX
the avcodec_open (condition which isn't checked by
avcodec_init_threads) will fail when opening the encoder.
If thread support isn't enabled, the reasonable thing to do seems to
me to set enc->thread_count to thread_count rather than require the
user to do it manually as in ffplay.c, then the avcodec_open will fail
This patch implements this solution.
By the way: shouldn't avcodec_thread_init if threads support is not
compiled *always* return 0 as opposed to the current behaviour of
A further fix could make avcodec_thread_init fail when thread_count is
greater than THREADS_MAX.
Furthermore we should check for the error code returned by
avcodec_thread_init as suggested by Michael Dorr.
