Ahh, so if i don't put the parameter, what does it choose as default? is
there anyway to capture the suggested vbitrate from the 1st pass of a
3pass encode? that way I could have a script that you tell it the
filename and cdlength and it will automatically use the value that the
1st pass suggests?

I just created a shell script that I give it the filename, it 3pass
encodes it, then renames the output file to the original name except it
ends in .divx instead of .mpg/.mpeg but would like to add that feature
of setting the vbitrate according to the suggested one(and then maybe
even set it up to do that OR a user selected bitrate.)

also, is there a way to get mencoder to not display the info about the
files its encoding and just show the progress section?
