[MPlayer-users] xvid + mencoder broken ?

i try to upgrade my xvid + mencoder to todays cvs - however it seems that
mplayer/mencoder ain't compatible to xvid anymore ?
Somehow compiling like the docs chapter 184.108.40.206 say doesn't make configure
detect xvid - so i use the "old" way by using divx4.h from xvid as encore2.h
and decore2.h and symlink libxvidcore.so as libdivxdecore.so and
This way xvid is detected as Divx4 and mplayer compiles just fine !
However when i use mencoder to encode to xvid (using divx4 interface) the
output file grows very large (sometimes ~1 GB per Minute video - i had) and
the final output file contains very strange colors and flickers - so there
goes something very wrong i guess :(
This seems to be version independend of xvid, however with mplayer cvs from 01
June 2002 everything worked and still does work with current xvid !!! So it
seems to be a "bug" in mplayer !?
Is this already a known bug, or have i done something wrong for current cvs of
mplayer (e.g. did the install method change ???) - if not i will provide a
proper bug report if you request it !
