I'm sorry I missed that one line. However, you didn't provide output 
from your "-mf" command at first and you didn't read the manual 
carefully enough. It gives this example:

mencoder \*.jpg -mf on:fps=25 -o output.avi -ovc divx4

You neglected to specify "on" to the "-mf" option and you didn't escape 
the "*" to keep the shell from expanding it. When I try this example, I 
get a segfault, but the options seem to be correct. See what you get.
