Mplayer is probably the best video player (and mencoder the best encoder)

Because the videodata recorded by dunerec is in some strange mpeg flavour it occupied quite a bit of diskspace. 2 hours approximately 5 GB. that is why I was looking for an easy way to convert the mpeg into divx. After unsuccessfully palying with transcode, I managed with mencoder. Mencoder is included with Mplayer and there is an RPM for Suse Linux 9.1. My first try was to encode a TV recording. I did in 2 passes, meaning I execute the first command and wait until it finished and then execute the second command.
