I have a QuickTime (svq1) video that I would like to convert in DivX
with MEncoder. I use this command :

mencoder -noskip -oac copy -ovc lavc -lavcopts
vcodec=mpeg4:vhq:keyint=250 video.mov -o video.avi

In the man page we can read

           Do not skip frames.

But I have tons of

Skipping frame!
Pos:1039,3s  27714f ( 0%)  20fps Trem:   0min   0mb  A-V:0,054 [801:0]

At the end, I use these commands to check the number of frames in my
different files :

mencoder -oac copy -ovc copy video.mov -o /dev/null 2>/dev/null | grep
"Video stream:" | awk '{print $12}'

mencoder -oac copy -ovc copy video.avi -o /dev/null 2>/dev/null | grep
"Video stream:" | awk '{print $12}'

2770 (115 seconds in my 24 fps video) frames were skipped. I don't know
why. I can see the original video perfectly with MPlayer without any
skipped frames. If you have a solution ...

Thanks in advance

PS: sorry for my really poor english :(
