I though you could force that by  -vc ffmpeg12  instead of -vc mpeg12 

output is

Forcing video codec: [ffmpeg12] drv:5 (FFmpeg-1)

instead of 

Forcing video codec: [mpeg12] drv:1 (MPEG 1 or 2)

But here (pure-C on Sparc) I can't tell if there is speed difference.
But I remember on my Linux-Box ffmpeg12 was much slower... but that's
long ago.
