Hi --

	MPlayer proved to be an even better playback tool the other night.

	I pulled in a movie from a vast archive (if you have not visited
	www.archive.org you should do so very soon).   The audio and video
	were out of sync.    

	ftp://movie0.archive.org/pub/movies/mpeg2/19150.mpg  is a delightful
	movie/musical from about 1952 but it was apparently damaged when
	the transfer from film to MPEG-2 was done.

	Using MPlayer's ability to vary the audio delay I was able to 
	determine that the audio and video were out of synce by .3 seconds.
	After that it was a simple matter to demux and remux (using 'mplex'
	from the mjpeg.sourceforge.net project) the video and now playback
	is perfect

	Thanks A'rpi (and the rest of the MPlayer developers) for a great
	program!   The command line tools are often the best ;)
