I'm trying to encode various different file formats to mpg or avi, but
I'm unable to succeed. The resulting AVI seems to be broken. I try to
use commansd like the following:

mencoder -oac copy -ovc copy -ni rtsp://streams3.omroep.nl/tv/vpro/tegenlicht/bb.20031109.rm
mencoder -o test.avi -ovc copy -oac copy mms://
mencoder -oac copy -ovc copy Gezondheidsplein\ \(NEDERLAND\ 1\,\ 17\ 35\,\ dinsdag\ 22\ oktober\ 2002\).asf

I don't know much about video encoding or playing, so I can't describe
what it's called what I see, I see various blocks in the video which
seem not to be updated. During encoding I get errors like:

Too many video packets in the buffer: (3648 in 8390104 bytes).
Maybe you are playing a non-interleaved stream/file or the codec failed?
For AVI files, try to force non-interleaved mode with the -ni option.

...although I do use -ni. I also get:

1 duplicate frame(s)!

I can't find anything in the documentation about this, but since I have
little knowledge about the subject, it may be that I'm not looking well.
I have looked at:

(the mailing list archive seems to be broken, by the way, so I was
unable to look at it. I'm sorry if this is a FAQ which isn't listed in
the FAQs)

I would be grateful if someone could either explain me the problem or
point me to a place where the problem is explained.
