I am trying to convert some 320x240 mpegs I have into VCD format, so I 
can put some home movies onto CDs.  I can use the following script, and 
it works just fine:

mencoder -vop scale=352:240 -o output.mpg -oac mp3lame -lameopts 
cbr:preset=224 -ovc lavc -lavcopts 
vcodec=mpeg1video:vbitrate=1150:aspect=1.3333 input.mpg

However, it results in an AVI, which is not compatible with vcdimager. 
 If I add the "-of mpeg" switch, it produces an mpeg file, but the sound 
track just has a pop at the beginning, then dead air.  If I used "-oac 
copy", no sound channel is even detected/created in the mpeg file.

If I do not use the "-of" switch, either "-oac" switch tested above 
works just fine (but I get an AVI file).  Am I doing something wrong? 
 Is this something known about, that is fixed in the 1.0pre series (I 
see this "-of" switch is BETA for this version)?
