[FFmpeg-devel] [PATCH] Default to using libraries when enabled

This changes the order of initialization so that external libraries  
that are enabled are used by default over native codecs. My main  
motivation in moving these is to be able to have the ogg and mkv  
muxers default to encoding via libvorbis if it's enabled; currently,  
specifying CODEC_ID_VORBIS will use the native encoder regardless,  
which is much worse quality.

However, this also affects faad and xvid. IMO, faad should be  
preferred anyway until the native decoder supports SBR, then dropped  
soon after. My only argument for xvid is that it's probably what users  
want to use when they --enable-libxvid.
