I am trying to install mencoder on Ubuntu 7.10. The only problem, I am getting the following error: 'E: Couldn't find package mencoder'. Any thoughts.

Ubuntu 7.10 reached end of life on April 18, 2009.
So 7.10 is no longer supported. You options:
1. Do a dist-upgrade to 8.04.
2. Do a clean install of 9.04.
I would choose option 2. If you want to do stuff like video encoding with mencoder, then you want an up to date system. Ubuntu 9.04 is very good imo.

And welcome to the Ubuntu forums!
