My brother asked me to convert him some videos to an audio 
format compatible with his Motorola cellphone. So, I used 
ffmpeg to convert the videos to mp3, one of the few formats 
his cellphone can read. But I noticed that ffmpeg doesn't 
do the convertions using the mp3 header; instead, the mp2 
is used.
After searching the repositories for a capable application, 
I finally came with a solution: convert the videos to Ogg 
Vorbis and then copy them to his windows machine (so far, I 
was not able to convert him to good - in the sense of 
goodness - software, aka free software) and then convert 
them in is machine to mp3, using audacity.

This situation makes me question if there is a free mp3 
library or something like that for ffmpeg. I found an 
enconder, but it is not capable of converting videos to
