>From FFmpeg's website:

" FFmpeg supports two AAC-LC encoders (aac and libfdk_aac) and one
HE-AAC (v1/2) encoder (libfdk_aac). The license of libfdk_aac is not
compatible with GPL, so the GPL does not permit distribution of
binaries containing incompatible code when GPL-licensed code is also
included. Therefore this encoder have been designated as "non-free",
and you cannot download a pre-built ffmpeg that supports it. This can
be resolved by compiling ffmpeg yourself."
"Requires ffmpeg to be configured with --enable-libfdk-aac (and
additionally --enable-nonfree if you're also using --enable-gpl)"

I don't understand if CinGG offers these possibilities. Is it perhaps
the "bluray_dv_pal(ntsc).mt2s" preset?

Another question: does DV include HDV (and DVPRO)? I haven't found any
presets or parameters naming  HDV.
