I am not sure I understand. piave can be asked for a 'outstream' with a 
'container' featuring a certain format and a 'codec' of certain kind, e.g.:

    <container format="rawdv" />

in the above case it's not necessary to specify codecs etc, since the 
container already defines 'em. However, you might want do specify them anyway 
in case you want to change the settings (PAL/NTSC , sampling rate, ...) from 
the default values.


    <container format="avi">
       <codec type="video">
          <libdv_encoder />
       <codec type="audio">
          <liblame ..... />

Note, that this does not work, unlike the first example.

Cheers, Rolf
