[MPlayer-users] mencoder indexing problem

I'm using "mencoder -oac copy -ovc copy" to fix a DivX movie that doesn't
have the index. The resulting file has the problem that seeking does not
work: seeking backwards gets to the very beginning, and seeking forwards
gets to the end (which of course quits mplayer).

"mplayer -idx" on the original file works OK, but I would rather have a
permanently corrected index. The version of mplayer/mencoder is of course
the latest CVS.

System info:
Mandrake 8.0 (heavily updated)
Linux 2.4.18-rc4
glibc 2.2.4
gcc 3.0.4
XFree86 4.2.0
binutils 2.11.2
AMD K6-3+
S3 Virge/MX 2MB
