Hi Luis,

Thanks for your advice. Unfortunately it hasn't worked. 

I am trying to create a file that conforms to MPEG-4 simple profile, as this 
is all the archos can support.
I have read through the man/FAQ's &docs but I can not find a mention of this 
anywhere.  I think that the file has to be DivX, does .-ovc lavc -lavcopts 
vcodec=mpeg4 output a standard DivX file?

Under windows I use:

variable bitrate mode = 1-pass
encoding bitrate = 800 kbps
max keyframe interval = 300
max quantizer = 12
min quantizer = 2
RC averaging period, frames 2000
RC reaction period, frames 10 
rate control up/down reaction 20

Can anyone help!

Thanks in advance,


P.S. I have tried:

mencoder -oac mp3lame -lameopts cbr:preset=128 -ovc lavc -lavcopts 
vcodec=mpeg4 -vop scale=352x288 berminster_1.avi -o wes_l.avi
