A couple comments...

1, I would try first without -endpos. Lots of broken doze programs
make avi files full of useless junk, bloating the size by as much as
10 megs. So just -oac copy -ovc copy alone might fix it.

2, even if you do have to use -endpos, at least 703 megs can fit on an
80min cd, so -endpos 700mb will cut the file unnecessarily short!
