Actually it does not matter, since I can tell from experience those tend
to get the best results if using nothing doesn't work.
But since probably nobody really understands the AV-sync code, I'd say
nobody really understands what they do.
But the problem with WMV is that the video timestamps sometimes jump
around (due to variable fps), and depending on the file they keep the
AV-sync from going crazy *g*
The funny thing is that for WMV they seem to be only needed with
mencoder, while mplayer plays the files fine without any special
