Hi all,

I have been trying for a week or so to get my fresh install of Ubuntu 10.04
to encode files for my HTC Magic Andriod phone. I've gotten the latest
versions of ffmpeg, x264 and mplayer from svn/git and get the following
warnings about broken lavf and global headers when using a script I have for
encoding that has worked perfectly in the past.

As noted in the MUXER_LAVF message, is the fact that I can't playback on my
Android phone but its ok with mplayer due to this error, or something I may
be missing from my x264/ffmpeg compilation?

REMEMBER: MEncoder's libavformat muxing is presently broken and can generate
INCORRECT files in the presence of B-frames. Moreover, due to bugs MPlayer
will play these INCORRECT files as if nothing were wrong!
