Hmmmm, I'm confused. I tried using mencoder to convert an avi to mpg. I used the command:
mencoder -oac copy -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4 -o cyclism.mpg Cyclism28May.avi
However, K3B won't burn the resulting mpg when I try to create a video disc. Instead it gives me the message:
Only MPEG1 and MPEG2 video files are supported
When I try to convert the avi to mpg using the mpeg2video codec in mencoder I get the following error:
videocodec: libavcodec (576x432 fourcc=3267706d [mpg2])
[mpeg2video @ 0x85b4ee0]MPEG1/2 doesnt support 2997/100 fps
Could not open codec.
FATAL: Cannot initialize video driver.
How do I get mencoder to convert the avi file to an mpg file that is burnable to a video disc (VCD or SVCD)?
I also tried using tovid to do the conversion, but it too gives me an error part way through the conversion process.
