I would like to know if the MythUbuntu mythtv backend 0.25 (12.04) was built with --enable-libx264 or --enable-libmp3lame options.

These options are needed to use the torc ios app and probably also with the new VDR xbmc 12. Thanks for your help.

Yes the 0.25 builds are built with both --enable-libx264 and --enable-libmp3lame (I've included the configure line below). You can see one of the build logs at

cd mythtv && ./configure --compile-type=profile --prefix=/usr --runprefix=/usr --enable-crystalhd --enable-lirc --enable-audio-alsa --enable-audio-oss --enable-dvb --enable-ivtv --enable-firewire --enable-joystick-menu --with-bindings=perl --enable-ffmpeg-pthreads --enable-pic --enable-vaapi --perl-config-opts="INSTALLDIRS=vendor" --enable-libvpx --enable-libx264 --enable-libmp3lame --enable-libfaac --enable-libxvid --enable-nonfree --enable-opengl-video --enable-vdpau
