I didn't plan on removing anything but the spurious first frame - an
only if and when it's spurious, which is not always the case as I now

I was talking about using mplayer as a "frameserver" for the decoding
stage of transcoding. Audio and video are then multiplexed later, after
each has been encoded separately. Of course when I actually play
something for the purpose of watching it at that time, mplayer has to be
used for everything.
"Azid" is a Win32 command-line program that decodes the AC3 format to
WAV, with the option of producing a Dolby Surround-compatible downmix
that later allows a DVD player which plays the resulting SVCD or VCD to
separate the front and back channels, although there is only 1 back
channel with this method.
