 From the manual:
   vbitrate=<value> specify bitrate in
                kbit <4-16000> or
                bit  <16001-24000000>
                (warning: 1kbit = 1000 bits)
                default = 800k

As far as I know, you need to parse the mencoder output. I could tell
you a way to do that, but I don't know enough about scripting to write
a nice, clean method. Perhaps someone else here can help you out with

Something you should read, besides the mplayer man page and docs :>)
is this bash scripting guide:

There's the -quiet option, but I remember some recent discussion about
that not having much effect.
