Trailing whitespace changes applied.  The rest needs a few changes,
there are still some bugs left ;-)

First of all, please try to fit in with the general coding style of
the document, try to break lines at 80 characters, make all tags
uppercase, put every paragraph into <P> tags and indent like the rest
of the document.  Oh, and please remember the spelling of MPlayer and
MEncoder.  It's only lowercase when you are talking about a command
line.  Then all paths should be surrounded by <CODE> tags, as should
be configure options and command lines, etc.  Here come the details:

I think you should put this in the TV-out section of video.html.  Do
you disagree?

Hmm, we never use <u>, make that <B>.

Careful, you are missing an 'l' in mpayer.

I could correct this myself, but I'm lazy tonight, so please do it.
I'll later port it to XML.
