This is good but I have a problem determining, accuratly, the length of the 
movie. Right now I get the .dat file sizes of both CD's, convert them to 
kbits and divide by the combined audio/video bitrate reported by mplayer. It 
works but a nice perl script to do it automagically would be nice. I should 
really write one!

Unfortunately my method of calculating the entire length is flawed because one 
.dat can contain more than one VCD track (it seems).

Not  a problem because I can understand you :)
