No (not on these systems, anyway).

My Debian installation has: mplayer 2:1.0~rc4.dfsg1+svn34540-1+b2

>> mplayer on our Ubuntu station is: Version: 2.0-554-gf63dbad-1ubuntu1

That's interesting, yep, I now noticed that the packages was called
mplayer2 there. I now ran "apt-get install mplayer" there, which
removed the mplayer2 package, and my program is working fine on his
system, too, now. Phew. Thanks!

Now if I could get audio and video in the same file immediately?
Should I install a newer version of mencoder? Or the used libraries?
