yes, that's what i meant.

>> the black bars stay

in part it is my mistake - it turned out that mplayer playes the output
fine, but i was only testing with win media player 6.4 and it doesn't work
there. it somehow thinks the size is 526x296 and i have no way to convince
it it is 704x296. strange thing is that vdub opens it ok. Until now win mp
6.4 has never had any problems with files i make with mencoder, though this
is my first dvd rip.
other players like bsplay work ok and with mp 6.4 i tried with both ffdshow
and divx5.0.2 decoders, so i'd  appreciate any info about the problem.
