I'm sure the information is out there but I can't figure out where to look...
I have installed xvid but mencoder can't use it. I think what I need to do is recompile MPlayer, but how?
When I run the command:
mencoder input.mov -ovc xvid -xvidencopts bitrate=1500:pass=1 -vf scale=720:480 -o output.avi
I get the result:
MEncoder 1.1-4.8.2 (C) 2000-2012 MPlayer Team
-xvidencopts is not an MEncoder option
Exiting... (error parsing command line)
I'm running Slackware 64 14.1. I have installed xvidcore-1.3.2.
I tried uninstalling and reinstalling MPlayer using the package included in the distro, but no difference. I see a slackbuild by alienBob, but it's really old.
I'm guessing I'm supposed to build a new package using an option that asks it to use xvid as a dependency, but how?
