But I don't get it. I have ffmpeg 0.7.2-1ubuntu1 from "main" and libx264-116 from "universe". Using

ffmpeg -f alsa -ac 2 -i pulse -f x11grab -r 30 -s 1680x1050 -i :0.0 -aq 100 -acodec libmp3lame -vcodec libx264 -vpre lossless_ultrafast -threads 0 -sameq output.mkv

I get a very good result with libx264 as the video codec. This is out-of-the-box without compiling ffmpeg myself.

Looking at comments to the recent omgubuntu articles about screencasting many people seem to have the same problem as I do. So is the ffmpeg backend still somehow selectible (like Alan Pope suggests above)?
