Ah. i like this idea.
On macosx we can 'disable certain' fields (by graying them out) when 
they do not apply. That will further clarify the use of the options. 
not sure how other platforms should handle that though.

I thought you also had this option for the http streamoutput. At least 
you do have this in the current macosx and wxwindows designs.
btw. i really think it should be a dropdown-list (popup-menu), since we 
are gaining yet another muxer (mp4) even now. You may have noticed that 
in the stream2.jpg i have left this option out. Anyone know of a good 
location to specify this?
