+@chapter Description
+@c man begin DESCRIPTION
+
+libavcodec is a library providing a generic encoding/decoding
+framework, and containing decoders and encoders for audio, video and
+subtitle streams.
+
+@c man end DESCRIPTION
+
+@chapter Codec Options
+@c man begin CODEC OPTIONS
+
+libavcodec provides some generic global options, which can be set on
+all the encoders and decoders. In addition each codec may support
+so-called private options, which are specific for a given codec.
+
+Sometimes, a global option may only affect a specific kind of codec,
+and may be unsensical or ignored by another, so you need to be aware
+of the meaning of the specified options. Also some options are
+meant only for decoding or encoding.
+
+Options may be set by specifying -@var{option} @var{value} in the
+FFmpeg tools, or by setting the value explicitly in the
+@code{AVCodecContext} options or using the @file{libavutil/opt.h} API
+for programmatic use.
+
+The list of supported options follow:
+
+@table @option
+@item b @var{integer} (@emph{encoding,audio,video})
+Set bitrate in bits/s. Default value is 200K.
+
+@item ab @var{integer} (@emph{encoding,audio})
+Set audio bitrate (in bits/s). Default value is 128K.
+
+@item bt @var{integer} (@emph{encoding,video})
+Set video bitrate tolerance (in bits/s). In 1-pass mode, bitrate
+tolerance specifies how far ratecontrol is willing to deviate from the
+target average bitrate value. This is not related to min/max
+bitrate. Lowering tolerance too much has an adverse effect on quality.
+
+@item flags @var{flags} (@emph{decoding/encoding,audio,video,subtitles})
+Set generic flags.
+
+Possible values:
+@table @samp
+@item mv4
+Use four motion vector by macroblock (mpeg4).
+@item qpel
