Authoring a DVD is no problem (I am using SpruceUp on wine), the only thing is 
that you have to convert the audio stream to 48 khz. I patched SpruceUp´s 
supportlibs.dll so that the app doesnt care about the wrong resolution of the 
video stream (and it works on every dvdplayer I tried yet ;-).
I already did it with TMPEG (works fine, but there seems to be a bug with 
pal/ntsc at merging mpeg2). 

I dont want to use TMPEG because I want to write a script which prepares the 
mpeg2 streams for autoring.

mencoder will reencode the video stream to mpeg1 with this options, won´t it?
I tried this, and it seems to take veeeery long... 

Thanks and regards,
