Encoders are configured elements in FFmpeg which allow the encoding of
5
multimedia streams.

7
When you configure your FFmpeg build, all the supported native encoders
8
are enabled by default. Encoders requiring an external library must be enabled
9
manually via the corresponding @code{--enable-lib} option. You can list all
10
available encoders using the configure option @code{--list-encoders}.
11

    
12
You can disable all the encoders with the configure option
13
@code{--disable-encoders} and selectively enable / disable single encoders
14
with the options @code{--enable-encoder=@var{ENCODER}} /
15
@code{--disable-encoder=@var{ENCODER}}.
16

    
17
The option @code{-codecs} of the ff* tools will display the list of
18
enabled encoders.
