Please don't clip mplayer/mencoder output like that. Show it all, even
the boring parts. See below...

The problem is actually that the original poster clipped the MPlayer
output. If the output were shown in full you would have seen that the
"Software: MEncoder 1.0pre7try2-3.3.5" line is preceded by "Clip info:",
which is the part where mplayer prints whatever textual information is
stored in the header.

So, we still don't know what version of MPlayer was used, but it looks
like Giacomo's post helped. :)
