Summary0001722: Replace mencoder / add alternative in foamCreateVideo
Descriptionmencoder is really outdated (e.g. on Ubuntu > 14.04 it is a pain to obtain). Could this be changed to something a bit more recent, such as avconv (formerly ffmpeg)? Also, it would be cool if you could offer the choice (make it default?) to use the Ogg/Theora or WebM/VP9 format instead -- you guys being all open-source and patent critical.
TagsNo tags attached.

Please provide suggestions/additions to the following:

- for MP4, would the following avconv command be equivalent to the mencoder command in the script:
    avconv \
        -i ${IMAGE}.%04d.png \
        -framerate $FPS \
        -o $VIDEO.mp4 \
        -c:v libx264 -pix_fmt yuv420p

- for WebM output, is the following OK for high quality (like x264 above):
    avconv \
        -i ${IMAGE}.%04d.png \
        -framerate $FPS \
        -o $VIDEO.webm \
        -c:v libvpx -crf 15 -b:v 1M
