Why not use "-oac copy" instead of "-oac pcm"? That has seemed to work 
for me. It seems to me "-oac copy" could be used for frameno as well. 
After reading all these comments, I'm more confused than ever about 
frameno. What does frameno.avi actually do? I can't find a satisfactory 
description anywhere, including manpage and main documentation.

I've had success using "-oac copy" for both passes of video encoding and 
skipping frameno altogether. Does it really do any good? If mencoder 
isn't complaining about duplicating or dropping frames, can the sync be 
assumed to be good?
