Thanks to everybody that replied.
I have been using the mencoder man pages as a reference where an example is
Encoding from a pipe
rar p test-SVCD.rar | mencoder -ovc divx4 -di-
vx4opts br=800 -ofps 24 -
Encoding multiple *.vob files
cat *.vob | mencoder <options> -
I have also been using the "DVD ripping and transcoding with Linux". It also
shows using a pipe incorrectly, according to this information.
Are there any definative guides thisgroup can recommend for ripping, encoding
Thanks again to everybody and especially the coders who have made MPlayer what
it is - your efforts are truly appreciated.
