Ok, here is the promised patch ;-)

I briefly tested it by generating raw h264 and a .mov file[1], and it
seems to work. I hope it is acceptable for you; if not, let me know
what's wrong and I'll try to fix it.
The patch is against your non-mmx patch, but I think it should apply to
the mmx version too (if not, I can regenerate it as needed).


[1] in order to properly mux ffh264 streams in mov containers, I had to
patch movenc.c, adding CODEC_ID_FFH264 to all the places where
CODEC_ID_H264 is used. I know this is not a good solution, but it works
well for testing ;-)
Copy this in your signature, if you think it is important:
