Sorry, my english is bad. I understand what you are doing in this step 
(a bit ;) ), but I don't understand what must I do that. it doesn't 
seems to be so useful for standard encoding.

I use package under Debian Sid.
When you speak about recompiling mplayer, it's only for the mencoder 
part I hope ?  This doesn't affect the player ? (because I want that 
everybody can see the movie without recompiling his player ;) )

Thx ! I will check this before recompiling anything.

Sorry.. it's also a misunderstanding. (My english is, at best, awful. 
And today, I'm very tired ;) so I hope you understand a bit)
I was speaking about debian sid package. (I add the line for matrsoka in 
my source list)
I tried mmg without problems a few weeks ago. But, today, it segfaults. 
  I just ask if it's a broken update on the mirror. If nothing was 
changed on the debian repository for a long times, it's then my system.. 
(but why ?)

Thx a lot for your reply. it's my first step in matroska world, but I 
hope I will soon "evangelize" a lot for it :)
