You said it was working for you last week. What error did you get?
Note: if PMS behaves unpredictably, the best bet is to restart PMS. ps3mencoder is just a simple wrapper around mencoder that fixes and optimizes the command line options supplied by PMS, and adds some special handling for YouTube videos. It shouldn't introduce behaviour that isn't already there with mencoder, and won't fix issues that are unrelated to mencoder web video streaming.
Well, the software updater kept bugging me for several days & I finally let it upgrade to a new kernel. After that the ps3mencoder of Jan 9th kept returning the error that it did not recognize that file type whenever I tried to play .MOV files. When I went back to the previous version of ps3mencoder, everything was good again.
when I run the following from a terminal with the Jan 9th ver of ps3mencoder
