Mmh, no, as is it will silently keep going.

I'll resend the patch making the muxers select the required bsfs.
Although admittedly there is no way to guarantee they will be available
even with that, since they are in a different library and you could
always dynamically load a different lavc.

Maybe we could emit a warning at runtime if the bsfs is required but not
compiled in?
