ffv1 should beat the others in compression for any input 
video, since it supports multi-threading, it should at 
least not be significantly slower than the other two on 
modern hardware.

Since you apparently don't know:
MEncoder is not an actively maintained application for 
several years, please use FFmpeg (which now supports 
an inverse telecine filter that is slower but more 
accurate than pullup).

I looked at the ffmpeg man page and I could not find any telecine filter anywhere in the man page.  The ffmpeg man page is also less than one tenth the size of the mencoder man page and it doesn't seem to have anywhere near as many encoding options.  Which inverse telecine filter were you referring to and how can I install this?
