Can you give us a brief description of what is wrong when you try to use mencoder or what kind of messages display on screen?
I've been running official mencoder build with Avisynth support through Milan's makeAVIS and I haven't found any problems but I heard from vhelp, and he's running windows 98, that he had lot's of problems first.
If you want us to help you you'll have to give us some hints
Surely this is nothing that will stop you from using mencoder

@ tickey,

Yes, as rds said... if you are running Windows 98/SE/ME, you'll have problems
w/ it due to the DOS command-line limitations. However, there is another
way around it.. using .OCF (option config file settings) (or .INI) files that MEn

Have a look here for some pointers:
* MEncoder under W98 / SE / ME - (work in progress) ..

or, check out the other thread below, where Bilu gives a more eligant version
but just read through the pages for tips and things:
* Mencoder thread (was FFMPEG vs FFVFW vs Mencoder ...)

from digital/Bilu, but note the layout. It should work for all OS's:
PAL: mencoder -include settings.ini -lavcopts keyint=15 movie.vob -o movie.m2v
NTSC: mencoder -include settings.ini -vf-pre softpulldown -lavcopts keyint=18 movie.vob -o movie.m2v

vrc_buf_size=1835:vqblur=0reme=2:ildctcmp=2rec mp=2:
vrc_minrate=300:intra_matrix=(...):inter_matrix=(. ..):

Good luck,
