I don't think this command is quite right.

Huh? The parser makes no difference for the order...
Either way, while you need -mc 0 -noskip when you copy video, you
usually still end up with sync issues if you don't re-encode the audio,
as mencoder is really bad at estimating how much data encoded audio
For your case I think you want "mplayer -dumpstream" anyway though.
