Hi,

I just uploaded to the lastest version, and when I try to encode to XVID it says "Unknown encoder 'libxvid'. :shock:

I don't know since when it happens, because until yesterday I was using a very old version, but it seems it's no longer build with --enable-libxvid --enable-gpl ??

Thanks.

The internal MPEG-4 encoder produces better results than Xvid, I would advise using that instead.

A dummy question, would that be -c:v libx264 ?

I disagree with that, I did some tests and libxvid looks much better than internal mpeg-4 encoder. Also internal MPEG-4 encoder is less compatible with standalone players than libxvid.

But, why it's no longer included in your builds? I've tried older versions, and it was still included untill last september versions.
