are we switching over to ffmpeg as the main encoder anytime soon, just wondering mencoder has had its day imo. i cant get over how much better ffmpeg is, i reduced my buffer by 1/2 and using 5,1,1 and surround now and files that were lagging before i had a couple no longer lag. and it looks alot better its played everything i thrown at it. i think over time mencoder has become more of a power hog, but ffmpeg seems to be improving on how much power u need and is reducing and its futureproof with a 64 bit version available now. just so good. ohh and it could use a update also the one included in the snapshot is over 9 months old heh. i just updated it manually from here.
EDIT: ffmpeg has been updated now to a current build 08/17/2013, thanks.
