I was glad to have a way to encode a DVD to be read in normal standalone
DVD reader but I have with the same instruction line written above.

[encode_ffmpeg] mpa codec not found !

[transcode]: warning (transcode.c) audio export module failed: init
[transcode] critical: failed to init encoder

transcode v0.6.14
Debian GNU/Linux 3.1 - Kernel 2.6.8-1-686-SMP

Did you have that problem too

transcode ... -x mplayer.mplayer ... failed too

I saw on this list there was a way to encode a DVD compatible mpeg file
with mencoder. I'll try too.
