media-video/h264enc-9.4.6 is available.
Please investigate the dep on media-sound/aacplusenc which blocks media-libs/libaacplus which in turn is needed by recent ffmpeg.
I *think* h264enc only needs a binary called aacplusenc, and that is provided by libaacplus as well.
I have not investigated this though and don't know if they are commandline-compatible.
9.4.8 has been released.

ebuild for the current version of the script.
10.2.2 is latest.
I've got a working ebuild, adds support for dcaenc (new ebuild in tree) and for opus audio codec.
Sent out an email to gentoo-dev with feedback for moving opus use flag from local to global. Once that goes through, I'll bump the ebuild.

Is there a technical reason that h264enc requires the installation of media-video/mplayer?
mplayer brings in all sorts of extraneous packages, that, as far as I can tell, are not *required* for h264enc to work.
If it isn't really needed can it be removed from the ebuild's RDEPEND list?

I use h264enc off & on - so I'm familiar with the basic functionality. The check for mplayer should actually be for mencoder (under Gentoo anyway)...
So it's an Upstream (h264enc) assumption that mencoder will be bundled with mplayer... Easy to fix with some sed magic or a patch... :-)
10.4.7 is the current version, so I guess this has been handled sometime in the past.
