just a complicated question. i have tried to compile the mplayer library so i could use mencoder for on the fly re-encoding of media files. im sure the cpu power is not quite there, but if i wanted to try anyway. i figured i could set the quality really low if i needed to re-encode and get by that way. the problem is that i cant get it to compile. it was a couple weeks back when i tried, so i cant look up where and why it failed to compile. i was wondering if anyone has had an experience with such an endeavor? maybe some hints, or maybe a fully compiled mencoder?
