Yes but not exactly. The requirement is that the frame rate between the screenshot
has to be constant. In your examples it is 1.05 and 1.10 sec and that wont work.
Example command line:
mencoder -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4 -o test.avi mf://ScreenCapture*.png -fps 0.952 -audiofile source.wav -ofps 25 -oac toolame -toolameopts br=224
This is a VERY basic command line that will create an avi assuming that the time
between screenshot is 1.05 sec.
You may improve the command line as you need. (audio codec, video codec/quality,
