For me the problem is the -s or silent option in the time-compile-mplayer command. Just running the same commands that script does without timing gives me wild results sometimes works, sometimes dont. It is never silent. Running the script time-compile-mplayer without the -s option is silent anyway. I would guess that may be a make bug? Anyway silent or -s seems uneeded and since Michael assumed the -jX was the problem he fell back to -s which is problem no matter with or without the -j option. But just running with make -j5 gives me more real results. Seems to end with encoder or mencoder right?
Anyway there's my 2 cents.
