Hi there,

I'm trying to convert my DVD's to DivX, I followed the instructions from
this website"

Command executed:
cat *.vob | mencoder -o mymovie.avi -oac mp3lame -lameopts br=192:vbr=2
-ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vhq:keyint=250 -vop lb

This is the output I get:
MEncoder 1.0pre1-2.95.4 (C) 2000-2003 MPlayer Team

Failed to open frameno.avi
Reading config file /usr/home/ajain/.mplayer/mencoder
Option .29 needs a parameter at line 1

I actually get the exact same output when executing 'mencoder' by itself
at the prompt.

Any help would be greatly appreciated
