Sets the encoder to use for video.
Not all combinations of video source, encoder and destination file will work.
AVRecorder.StartRecording may fail later.

On Mac and iOS we use standard encoder by default (H264 usually).

MBS( "AVRecorder.SetEncoder"; $AVSession; "WMVideo9 Encoder DMO" )

Set DV encoder:

MBS("AVRecorder.SetEncoder"; AVRecorder::Session; "DV Video Encoder")
