I tweak my options case by case, but usually they are pretty much like
this particular example, where the source was a non-anamorphic NTSC DVD:
-ofps 23.97602397602398 \
-noodml -sws 5 \
-vf dsize=108/79,crop=708:382:4:48,hqdn3d,scale=592:352 \
-ovc lavc \
-mc 0 -aid 128 -oac mp3lame \
-lameopts mode=1:abr:br=112:aq=2:vol=6 \
-o $2 \

I use mplayer and try to stay away from windows, but the problem is
the people I encode videos for. I don't always have control over their
codec selection. Where I do have control, I have installed mplayer and
told them to use that instead of windows media player.
