For muxing, the most reliable container for mencoder are both AVI and
MPEG PS (-of mpeg). You can get valid files with -of lavf in some
cases but not always. If you don't use b-frames for encoding (or the
file you're trying to remux with mencoder doesn't have b-frames) you
can create valid files with -of lavf. Otherwise, stay away from it and
use 3rd party tools
