    I'd like to be able to set the options for the x264 codec to some of the examples specified at http://www.mplayerhq.hu/DOCS/HTML/en/menc-feat-x264.html. However, whenever I choose the x264 video codec both the video options and number of passes drop down are disabled.

    The only codecs that appear to allow the video options and number of passes to be set are nuv, lavc and xvid.

    I'd really like to be able to use the x264 codec since it results in a much smaller ripped file (even without being able to specify the options).

    Thanks in advance.
