[MEncoder-users] is this a good workflow?

Hi again,

I'm looking for any input regarding this workflow:

1.  extract the audio from original file:  mencoder original_file.mpg -of rawaudio -oac mp3lame -ovc copy -o audio.mp3
2.  will convert audio.mp3 to audio.m4a outside of mencoder to avoid using libfaac
3.  joining everything back together:  mencoder original_file.mpg -audiofile audio.m4a -oac copy -fafmttag 0x706D -ovc lavc -lavcopts vglobal=1:vcodec=mpeg4 -of lavf -lavfopts format=ipod -o new_file.m4v

This seems to work but is maybe a horrible way to do this and that's why I was looking for some input.  Any advice is much appreciated thanks,
