Do you mean as a regular codec for all movies instead ?

Successfully tested with motion 3.2.12-3 backported from Debian Sid to Debian Squeeze and built against libavcodec52/libavformat52/libavutil49 0.5.6-3 and libtheora0 1.1.1+dfsg.1-3. Works very well, except ffmpeg_variable_bitrate produces very low quality movies for any value between 2-31 (60 seconds of 8fps in 320x240 takes cca 130 KB with variable bitrate in ogg; the same in swf with other settings unchanged takes about 4MB). CPU usage seems to be slightly higher in comparison to swf (tested on AMD Geode LX 800).

, This patch implements the change for time lapse only.

, but maybe you meant regular movies , because time lapse only works with mpeg no matter what codec you setup for ffmpeg_video_codec ,
So please change description of the patch , attached is the diff against trunkREV552.
For me looks good to commit this into SVN & GIT.
Thanks a lot for your contribution.
