Here's a patch that got lost about a year ago probably. FFmpeg supports threads, very well infact. This enables it and allows you to adjust the number of threads used to encode in software to make better use of SMP or HT.

(In [7507]) Closes #373, by applying patch + some editing.

Parts of this patch had already made it into SVN, plus I've made this multi-threaded software encoding default to being disabled. Those that want to experiment with it can pass "--enable-ffmpeg-pthreads" to ./configure. You then need to "make clean" before recompiling.

I haven't added this to the --help text for ./configure for now.
