Hi again 

RC, many thanks for your corrections, I discovered later that you hit on
the target; They oblied me to review the mencoder DOCS (html) and the
man page again..., since I didn't know really what you all were talking
about; Actually, there are lots of things that can easily go unnoticed
at a first (or second...) reading. 
After all yours mail responses, I realized that I'd need to have a look
deeper to the DOC available in /usr/share/... I did it. It took me a
considerable amount of time. Now, I'm here again; And again..., please,

Sorry, you probably mean vhq is = to mbd=1 (accordingly with the man
All in all, what I need would be probably mbd=2, right?

Yep. You're right.

There were no special reason for that; Just, I was afraid then about
possible a/v sync problems. 
Anyway, I'll choose something like 132 or a bit higher in the future.

I think (after DOCS reading) you're right again. Maybe vqscale=3 (good
quality/compression) would be a good try to begin. If file sizes raise
too much, I'd have to try vqscale=4 or higher, according with the

What you maybe mean is that it isn't recommended cropping with
interlaced content, is it? 
Otherwise, I do not want to deinterlace, that's not into my intentions,
since I'm watching those stuff in the TV.

I also take note about that; I think maybe nr=320 would be nice
considering the note of the next post in this thread.

I take note again... Do you mean pp would be, _if used_, _after_ get
your desired file, and separately, in a subsequent command order?
