Further I think there is a problem (or  i've the prob only) with the 
ending of the dump.
when the stream stops or ends the mplayer still stands. and do not react 
on q or ESC.

When i send an kill or press STRG-C, i think mplayer/mencoder does not 
write the
correct end of the file.....

How can i fix it, is there an option like "Stop on End" or so.
I've nothing seen in the man.

-dumpvideo and -dumpaudio don't work together ; in your case you wil get 
only audio

why not
mencoder -ovc frameno -o file.avi -oac copy 

or if you want to play the file with mplayer:

mplayer -rawaudio on:format=<MP4A_FOURCC> file.aac

where <MP4A_FOURCC> is the hex code you have in codecs.conf for AAC

Obviously in no case you will have a qt stream.
