+<title>Using vfw2menc to create a codec settings file.</title>
+To encode with the Video for Windows codecs, you will need to set bitrate
+and other options. This is known to work on x86 on both *NIX and Windows.
+First you must build the <application>vfw2menc</application> program.
+It is located in the <filename class="directory">/TOOLS/</filename> subdirectory of MPlayer source.
+To build on Linux, this can be done using <application>Wine</application>:
+<screen>winegcc vfw2menc.c -o vfw2menc -lwinmm -lole32</screen>
+To build on Windows in <application>MinGW</application> or <application>Cygwin</application> use:
+<screen>gcc vfw2menc.c -o vfw2menc.exe -lwinmm -lole32</screen>
+To build on <application>MSVC</application> you will need getopt.
+Getopt can be found in the original <application>vfw2menc</application> archive available at:
+The <ulink url="http://oss.netfarm.it/mplayer-win32.php">MPlayer on win32</ulink> project.
+Below is an example with the VP6 codec.
+vfw2menc -f VP62 -d vp6vfw.dll -s firstpass.mcf
+This will open the VP6 codec dialog window. Repeat this step for the second pass
+and use <option>-s <replaceable>secondpass.mcf</replaceable></option>.
+Windows users can use <option>-xvfwopts codec=vp6vfw.dll:compdata=dialog</option> to have
+the codec dialog display before encoding starts.
