I wouldn’t advise doing it that way. Instead, render to a sequence of still frames in some lossless format, e.g. PNG. Then use a separate tool, like FFmpeg, to do the conversion to a movie format. This has a couple of important advantages: 1) Much more control over the movie generation, choice of qu...
I have FFmpeg built from source on my system, to get around outdated distro packages. I also have a lot of additional functionality enabled, which means my FFmpeg libraries depend on a whole bunch of additional libraries like faac and faad, lame, schrödinger, theora and so on. My first thought was t...

I don’t know what you mean by “Complete history of any modifiers”—all modifiers currently in effect are listed under the modifiers tab for the active object, and there are buttons to remove them, or to just temporarily disable them for preview, rendering, or both. And each one has an “Apply” button ...

The basic problem is that operators represent user actions, not really low-level functions. What you want is a separate API call for invoking .obj import that has no UI dependencies.
Disregard that useless “sticky” posting. The current API docs are here: http://www.blender.org/documentation/blender_python_api_2_64_9/ . I’m not sure if the BMesh explanation is sufficiently detailed yet; it may be helpful to refer to the design rationale here: http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Dev...
All those fields are accessible here http://www.blender.org/documentation/bl ... Paths.html as bpy.context.user_preferences.filepaths.

Blender now builds against your system Boost libraries. I have Boost 1.49 installed under Debian Unstable; there is also the option of 1.50, but that’s not compatible with the distro-supplied OpenImageIO package.
