    Hi, Bobby Bingham!

Sometime (on Thursday, August  7 at  1:25) I've received something...

I would prefer for example to have in config file:

ovc:lavc = codec=mpeg4:hq
ovc:jpeg = quality=90
oac:mp3lame = aq=0

and then run mencoder with
mencoder -dvd -ovc lavc:vpass=1 -oac mp3lame:aq=9
mencoder -dvd -ovc lavc:vpass=2 -oac mp3lame

    If anyone will redo config/commandline parser then let me call
mencoder that way, please. ;)

    Muxer code in G2 still didn't developed so I'm not sure if it's
working at all. I think I'll work on it later. Now I have too few time,

    With best wishes.
