Default Modifications to use Ubuntu 7.10

When I tried to use in Ubuntu, I'd get the following message:
Audio LAVC, couldn't find encoder for codec mp3.
With some poking around, I found the following parameters within the mencoder line in the script to work:
mencoder "$FILE" \
        -o "${FILE%.*}_bb.avi" \
        -of avi \
        -ovc lavc \
        -oac mp3lame \
        -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vbitrate=$VBR:acodec=aac:abitrate=$ABR \
        -vf scale=$RES
Using mp3lame gave me a usable video with audio that was fine. There may be some fine tuning for this, but I haven't done too much more fiddling with it.
