If I have a static version of mencoder, and don't update, and it works for
what I want to do, and nothing else does, then it's my only option.  Why would
a static version of mencoder break at any time?  It can't, if I don't update the
The reason I don't use ffmpeg for IRTC, and I tried, is that it threw away 25 percent
of the frames, when it should only throw away 20 percent of the frames.  I don't think
that will be fixed anytime soon either.
The reason I'm not using mplayer is because it doesn't do IRTC.
The command you listed doesn't do IRTC.  Can that command
be modified so it does IRTC (filmdint)?
Thanks you for your help.
