Is there a way to install mencoder on Lion, preferrably using homebrew?

up vote 25 down vote accepted

mencoder is part of the MPlayer utility, and is installed as part of the MPlayer package on most systems. Installing MPlayer via Homebrew ( brew install mplayer ) will supply the mencoder binary as well.

$ brew list mplayer
/usr/local/Cellar/mplayer/1.1/share/man/ (2 files)
