I wonder why mencoder does this. There is solution, though. When you do

cat *vob | mencoder -, it skips some frames in the beginning (and
produces very jumpy video in first seconds). But if you have enough
cat *vob >temp.vob; mencoder temp.vob
works perfectly, without frame skipping. It really looks like a bug to
me - mencoder _can_ encode without skipping those frames, so why do I
have to make huge temp.vob for this?
