Package: gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg
Version: 0.10.3-3
Severity: normal


  The new gst-ffmpeg doesn't seem to include a h261 encoder. Even though it
  seems to be enabled in the system ffmpeg package:

$ ffmpeg -formats | grep h261

 DE h261            raw h261
 D V D  h261

This codec is often used for video conferencing using telepathy.. So it would
be good to have it by default if possible :)
