Thank you very much Dominik.... so 32-bit windows codecs don't work with a
64-bit mplayer? I'm only interested in encoding to lavc FMP4/DivX format and
maybe Xvid with MP3 audio. Will that be a problem? Also where can I find
good documentation about the options supported in MEncoder for encoding?....
Sorry for all these stupid questions
