[MEncoder-users] V210 Codec

I hope someone working with the v210 codec can point me in the right direction.  I had it working once but had to wipe the machine and I can't seem to get there again.

Every time I try to play (using mplayer) or convert a video with v210 I get the following error.  I have tried recompiling from source and all the codecs I could get my hands on, but I can't seem to get it to work again.
