Mencoder silently quits

Description (last modified by reimar)

Hello. Encountered weird situation when MEncoder just quits encoding without giving any error or information. MPlayer on the other hand can play file just fine.
Command line "mencoder -demuxer mkv "path_to_file" -o temp.avi -vf ass,scale=480:272,harddup -af channels=2 -srate 44100 -oac faac -faacopts br=128:mpeg=4:object=2 -ovc x264 -ffourcc avc1 -x264encopts me=umh:level_idc=13:keyint=250:frameref=2:bframes=0:threads=auto:profile=main:rc_lookahead=60:crf=20 -aspect 16:9 -mc 0 -ass -noskip"
Files to test with (seeded torrents):

Please add full output.
Also, I cannot reproduce the issue using SVN and a cut-down command of
mencoder -o temp.avi -vf ass,scale=480:272,harddup -af channels=2 -srate 44100 -oac lavc -ovc lavc -aspect 16:9 -mc 0 -ass -noskip
(with or without -demuxer mkv makes no difference).
I would need to know whether or not you have this issue even with this command-line, and if not which option causes the issue to appear.

i'm guessing this is a distro mencoder crash.
compile mencoder from source or update your package, maybe use deb-multimedia repo.

does our mkv demuxer handle all h264?
try -demuxer lavf instead of -demuxer mkv...
