this is strange, I've added this option to the command line parser,
but it seems to ignore.
I will fix it.

It should be 1.

Sorry, I didn't understand the question.
What you mean resize ? Resize the video resolution ?

I think that those issues are related to the encoder_example as a
whole, and not specific to my patch.
Maybe this is something to be changed in future versions of the encoder_example.
But as the goal of this example is to be simple and didactic, maybe it
should avoid such complications on the source code.
