I understand that they are different, but in this case, why would you 
want to limit the color space on the input of an input type? 

The why stems from my not quite understanding the state of development 
of both projects. What Mplayer/Mencoder uses from ffmpeg and what it 

Is it safe to assume that you should use ffmpeg/x264/etc. unless you 
absolutely need to use Mencoder filtering and sync?  I'm a little 
clueless when it comes to making that decision and knowing which project 
is a better solution for a given encoding task.
