Sorry, I thought this error comes from mplayer. Now I've seen that it
comes from the encoderscript (mythnuv2mkv). It appears after that
command line

ldd /usr/bin/mencoder | grep -i libxx264.....

which returns nothing. Does that mean that x264 support is not compiled in?

I'm using the packaged version from the MOTU media team

I'll look there for a solution or install mencoder from source as you
