>From what I can tell, libx264 embeds its encoder settings into the
resulting movie, whether employed from mencoder or from ffmpeg. As
those settings aren't exposed by any programs other than mediainfo, but
you can also see that embedded info doing something like this:
$ strings < out.avi | grep -E "x264.*core"
You should at least compare the settings from mencoder and ffmpeg (and
share the output here), as you/we might get an indicator as to which
setting is leading to bad results.
I also haven't seen the full uncut console output of either encoding command
yet, please do provide. Just in case. :-)
