No i didn't end up using y4menc.

I found:

    encode=gst_element_factory_make("ffenc_mpeg4", "encoder");
    mux=gst_element_factory_make("ffmux_mp4", "muxer");
	g_object_set (G_OBJECT (encode), "bitrate", 2000000, NULL);		//
	g_object_set (G_OBJECT (encode), "interlaced", TRUE, NULL);

seems to work OK for us so far.  There is precious little documentation
about ffenc_mpeg4.

Good Luck!
