You don't need any -vc switch. It's automatic. But why are you trying to
play an MPEG-4 file through an MPEG-2 DVB card? DVB is MPEG-2 only, so there
is no need for your card to have a separate decoder for MPEG-4 as well (hence
the message about the incompatibility.) MPEG-4 is not MPEG-2 (you don't see
many DVDs around in the DivX format, do you??? ;-))
If you leave off the -vc switch but use the proper -vo switch, mplayer should
automatically decode the MPEG-4 file and re-encode it as MPEG-2 for the DVB
card, assuming your CPU is powerful enough to do the conversion in real time.
