I assume you're asking about the mpeg muxer of mencoder? If so, it's not a
filter that's missing. It's a feature of the muxer itself. I already
requested for this feature to be added to the ffmpeg mpeg muxer, but no one
cares about it

If you're asking about a real filter, then I don't miss any filters in
ffmpeg. In fact, it has more filters than mencoder/mplayer

we're almost 2014 and ffmpeg still can't read directly from discs. For
God's sake, DVD is being phased out very slowly in favor of Blu-ray, but
ffmpeg still can't handle DVDs, let alone Blu-rays
