I have the same problem. But for obscure reasons, mplayerhq bounced my 

And please, *pretty please*, no flames about why one would encode to WMA 
when it sucks, when all things MS suck, when there is MP3, or OGG, or 
AC3... This is a simple case of 'the customer is always right' (I'm not 
the customer, I *have* one. Troublesome beasts...)

If it cant be done in mencoder, is there a command-line MSWIN proggy, 
preferrably open-source of course, that could do it under wine?
