I am looking to reencode each piece as I split, as a requirement of
what I want to do. I could see splitting the file with something else
and piping it to mencoder, if their is something that can do that?  My
search so far has turned up nothing.

I would love to find some way to shoot out frame 501-1000 to mencoder,
encode as it recieves the frames, end the loop, shoot out frames
1001-1500, encode as recieved, end etc. Then, after a few other steps,
I can put the files back together as if it were the original.

I'll have to give ffmpeg a test and see if that does it.
