Well, I just did (almost) sth like this and it worked perfectly.

I downloaded ``Phantasm I'' from suprnova. It was 23.976fps AVI with
48kHz mp3 sound. I dumped audio to wav and did the following magic:

(change audio rate to 48000*23.976/25)
sox -V phantasm.wav -r46034 -swc2 -t raw phantasm.raw

(create wav changing only rate information to 48kHz)
sox -V -r48000 -swc2 -t raw phantasm.raw -t wav pha.wav

then I passed it through mencoder

(change fps to pal w/o reencoding)
mencoder -nosound -fps 25 -ovc copy -o pha.avi phantasm.avi

(mux in changed audio as ac3 sound)
mencoder -ovc copy -audiofile pha.wav -oac lavc -lavcopts \
   acodec=ac3:abitrate=192 -o pha2.avi pha.avi

Later I reencoded video to mpeg2 with mpeg2enc and there is _perfect_ a/v
sync thoughout the movie when I play it with mplayer and my standalone


PS I know that those commands are not optimised for characters typed,
but they are exact commands from my cmdline history that produced the
desired results ;) I don't have commandline that produced final mpeg2
video, because it was a script that I later removed.

PPS I used mplayer to scale, postprocess and dump video to yuv4mpeg
stream and recoded it with mpeg2enc. But lately I started to use
mencoder/ffmpeg for this since it is faster and gives me better results.
And despite the rate control being fucked up in ffmpeg (i.e. peak rate
is always around 11Mbps no matter what maxrate I set) my dvdplayer
plays it just fine.
