I am running the latest version of mplayer from the head of cvs.

is listed as much larger than the actual bitrate.

ii) The video file generated using 'dumpvideo' is not recognized by

If I use mencoder as a vcr - the output avi file has the following

i) the aspect ration listed by the 'identify' option is 0 when it

Thanks for any help you can provide.
