[Libav-user] output-example.c replacement?

Sun May 3 01:34:49 EEST 2020
Based on the encode_video.c example, I started to work on a new version of
the "classic" output-example.c using no deprecated functions.
Here is the source code:
This is the compilation line I am using:
gcc output-example.c -o test -L/usr/local/ffmpeg/lib -lavformat -lavcodec
Now, when I try to execute it, I use these lines:
./test test.mp4 libxh264
Getting this output:
create_video_file() - Tracing...
create_video_file() - codec id -> 27
add_video_stream() - Tracing...
Output #0, mp4, to 'test.mp4':
Stream #0:0: Unknown: none (libx264)
open_video_stream() - Tracing...
[libx264 @ 0x55890aeebc00] [IMGUTILS @ 0x7ffd3de293c0] *Picture size 0x0
[libx264 @ 0x55890aeebc00] Ignoring invalid width/height values
[libx264 @ 0x55890aeebc00] [IMGUTILS @ 0x7ffd3de293a0] *Picture size 0x0
[libx264 @ 0x55890aeebc00] Codec type or id mismatches
open_video_stream() - *Could not open input codec (error 'Invalid
create_video_file() - *Could not initialize video codec.*
I have been trying to find out if the problem is about some environment
setting that I am missing, or if it is related to the source code directly.
So, I appreciate it if someone helps me to fix the example to make it
usable. In fact, I would love to make it part of the FFmpeg examples
package as I am aware it will be useful for beginners.
Any hint is very welcome.
