I want to save animation of u. The error message is as follows:

$ convert -delay 50 u*jpg u.mpg

sh: mpeg2encode: command not found
convert: Delegate failed `"mpeg2encode" "%i" "%o"'.

i guess you should install mpeg2encode
so use
sudo apt-get install mpeg2encode
or in synaptic package manager in Ubuntu (if you use Ubuntu)
search for it
