Even 10.1 does not install mencoder by default. you will have to install it.

apt-cache search mencoder
mencoder-586 - MPlayer's Movie Encoder
mencoder-custom - MPlayer's Movie Encoder
mencoder-k6 - MPlayer's Movie Encoder
mencoder-k7 - transitional dummy package which can be safely removed
sudo apt-get install [one-of-the-packagenames-above]
