Yes it is. And I'll be missing it if it were to be extinguished... Really!

And I remember that there was a fix for what I used mencoder for
sometime around 2013 or 2014.

I do use FFmpeg for sometimes hours daily of videos that I record, sure.

Bu what I use Mencoder for, I don't think it can be easily done so well
with some other program. Also because it's for recording on yesterday's
hardware that I use it for... But which still works! This hardware:

Hauppauge HVR3000, and I connect the set top box of InternetTV where I
attach SCART to this machine where I attach cinch into, and with this
profile in

~/.mplayer/mencoder.conf :

profile-desc="mpeg4 capture"

I still get fine recording (well... fine... it's so ...obsolete now... but
I do get it) with this command:

$ mencoder tv:// -profile mpeg4_capt_HaupP -o Compo_`date +H%m%d_%H%M`.avi

And about the fix in around 2013 or 2014. Previously it wasn't synced.
It drove people crazy trying, but there was only one way to do it:

You could only get audio and video in sync if you kill -9 on the running

In 2013 or 2014 that was fixed, and mencoder began, while running
normally, to produce synced AV recordings That I do remember.

I don't think the mpv, the MPlayer fork, has the capability to replace
this functionality that I use, does it? (Not that I need it, if it
continues to work... Just curious.)
