users use ffmpeg as a wrapper api for the various standard
encoders and decoders. libmpeg, xvid, libvorbis, etc.

the wrapper code doesnt change much and people find it helpful.
ffmpeg used to have a lot of wrappers for other libs. also useful for
testing our dec/encoders. instead of having to use mplayer to test
between xvid and ffmpeg4...
