I would have objected to the form you suggest if it had been present in
the original patch, and the current form is one I might have accepted as
an improved alternative. "muxing" is not the correct form to use in this
context; it becomes part of the noun phrase "MEncoder muxing", which
does not match cleanly with "allows" IMO.

Originally this line had the word "other" in both locations, and I
thought it didn't really make much difference which one was dropped. If
you disagree, feel free to change it.

...is this really the standard? If we were going to decide that only one
of the forms is acceptable, I would have expected it to be the other,
since it (currently, at any rate) seems less colloquial to me.
