 Summary of the bug:

 I just compiled the encode_video.c example against Shift Media Project's
 ffmpeg for Windows (https://github.com/ShiftMediaProject).  The result is
 that it can never find an encoder (avcodec_find_encoder_by_name always
 fails).  This is easily fixed by adding avcodec_register_all before the

 How to reproduce:
 % ffmpeg -i encode_video.c ... encode_video
 % encode_video Test.mp4 libx264
 Codec 'libx264' not found

 ffmpeg version: libffmpeg_3.4.1.r89955_msvc15
 built a couple of weeks ago (but verified against trunk's encode_video.c).
