Your command-lines indicate that you are using a g1 version.  I have 
personally had many encoding (as well as decoding) problems with every 
version I've tried.  If you haven't done so already, I would strongly 
suggest using a MPlayer 0.9x version, and see if your results are any 
better.  There certainly are serious improvements in my own tests.
