I should have given more details. We ship out ASF files that have to be 
acceptable to WMP6.4 and later. WMP7 and WMP9 have no trouble with ASF 
made by lavc+lavf (under ffmpeg, not under mencoder) using one of the 
MSMPEG4 video codecs in lavc, and MP3 (lame) sound. However, WMP6.4 
rejects such files. Ditto if MSADPCM is used. It seems (sotp) that 
*only* WMA will do. Since I cant encode WMA in ffmpeg I was looking for 
an alternate encoder.
