Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have windows xp.
I ran a blue ray rip on my P3 with following options
-vf scale=640:272 (because my computer supports max resolution 1024x768 while original video is 1280x528)
Yet the video is slower than audio.
Can I do anything else to play this ?
How can I convert the file to lower resolution video maintaining quality & small size using ffmpeg or mencoder?
here are file specifications
You aren't going to be playing a BD rip on a P3. My dual-core laptop can barely play HD video.
If you really wanted to, you could convert it to something like a 640x272 XviD, but it would probably take that machine days just to convert the video, and obviously the video quality would be nothing like the original.
when I just ran
I got error
FATAL: Cannot initialize video driver.
Too many buffered pts
Movie-Aspect is 2.35:1 - prescaling to correct movie aspect.
VO: [directx] 1280x544 => 1280x544 Planar YV12
<vo_directx><FATAL ERROR>can't use overlay mode: please use -vo directx:noaccel
Also I played brrip though with aberrations on my pentium3 via
(1)extract sound using ffmpeg
(2)mplayer video_file -audiofile sound.mp3 -vf scale=width:height -framedrop
Here width , height is fraction of original.
By giving sound file as input , we are saving effort of processor to decode audio from brrip stream.

3.11 Which are good parameters for encoding high quality MPEG-4?
'-mbd rd -flags +mv4+aic -trellis 2 -cmp 2 -subcmp 2 -g 300 -pass 1/2', things to try: '-bf 2', '-flags qprd', '-flags mv0', '-flags skiprd'.
