[MEncoder-users] Converting raw grayscale stream to xvid or other video

Hmmm, good point. Thank you for the correction.
Now I have tried:
mencoder red.raw -rawvideo
w=1024:h=768:fps=24.0:size=786432:format=Y8-lavcopts gray -ovc xvid -o
As well as:
mencoder red.raw -rawvideo w=1024:h=768:fps=24.0:size=786432:y8 -lavcopts
gray -ovc xvid -o output.avi
mencoder red.raw -rawvideo w=1024:h=768:fps=24.0:size=786432 f format=Y8
-lavcopts gray -ovc xvid -o output.avi
Which all yield the same result as before:
============ Sorry, this file format is not recognized/supported
=== If this file is an AVI, ASF or MPEG stream, please contact the author!
Cannot open demuxer
With these parameters should not any file of the requisite size be
converted? I do not think that to be related, but the file size is 202899456
bytes, which is 1024 * 768 * 258 frames.
I am uncertain as to where I have erred.
Thanks again for your assistance.
