[MPlayer-users] mencoder questions

I have two questions belonging on mencoder.
1. Reducing verbosity
When I start mencoder, it tells me more than 60 lines about what it has
found ans loaded. Surely useful for first steps, but not very
interesting when running mencoder in scripts where you would like to
run it not completely but very quiet.
Is there an option which reduces verbosity to a very minimum, like
telling me which frame size/fps/encoding it will use (maybe in 1-2 lines?)
and the same with audio (in another 1-2 lines), followed by the usual
line with "pos:1583.4s 12345f (0%) ........."?
2. Stamping while recording
I am sure this is a very unusual wish because everybody is happy to see
nothing of such stuff inside the recordings, but I have a special case
where a static text/image should be overlayed either periodically or
permanent over the whole image.
I think about either drawing some kind of image in frame size with either
a transparent background or with one color to be handled as "transparent"
like in a "bluebox",
or using only some text which will be inserted like a subtitle.
The video source will be video4linux (a Hauppauge bt878 card) and will be
used to record/digitize VHS tapes. Because the recordings are for preview
DVDs, either the logo of the company or "For your condcideration" should
be irreversibly inserted.
The final step of converting my DivX -> DVD-Iso is still a nightmare in
Linux and will be done on a Windoze PC with Adobe Premiere, but recording
shall happen on my Linux-Box because everything on hardware is available
Any ideas how I could get that done with Linux and my existing mencoder?
