I've been experimenting with various mencoder options (on my SuSE 9.3 PC) to get something that works optimally on the Z. A typical command is
mencoder $1 -o $2.avi -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vhq:vqmin=2:vqmax=20:vmax_b_frames=2:vbitrate=192:vqcomp=0.6:vpass=
-vf scale=320:240,eq=6 -oac mp3lame -lameopts abr:br=64:aq=1 -srate 24000
but XMMS plays the result with the sound leading the video by a second or more. Also I'd like to run full-screen but the results are always jerky. On Cacko using kino I had some success by rotating the video and sizing to 480x640, but everything I encoded recently played with no video at all, which was the main reason I moved to pdaXrom.
Does anyone have a recommendation?
