The problem may not be with my MPEG files but with genisoimage not
generating the required UDF structure for the DVD Video. This is a
really annoying bug, not related with MEncoder. But having a way to
repair MPEG files with MEncoder (or any other tool) without reencoding
is still an open question for me.
