WMV to MPG conversion


I have some wmv files split into 10 parts. I want to join them together and make a vcd.
I figured k3b can only handle mpeg files for pre-conversion. I tried to use ffmpeg to convert wmv to mpg i get
Code:
Input #0, asf, from '1.wmv':
  Duration: 00:18:28.9, bitrate: 379 kb/s
  Stream #0.0: Audio: wmav2, 48000 Hz, stereo, 96 kb/s
  Stream #0.1: Video: WMV3, 320x240, 1.00 fps
File '1.mpg' already exists. Overwrite ? [y/N] y
Output #0, mpeg, to '1.mpg':
  Stream #0.0: Video: mpeg1video, 320x240, 5.00 fps, q=2-31, 200 kb/s
  Stream #0.1: Audio: mp2, 48000 Hz, stereo, 64 kb/s
Stream mapping:
  Stream #0.1 -> #0.0
  Stream #0.0 -> #0.1
[mpeg1video @ 0xb7f2a128]MPEG1/2 doesnt support 5/1 fps
Error while opening codec for stream #0.0 - maybe incorrect parameters such as bit_rate, rate, width or height
What should I do, should i specify another fps setting or something.
The real problem is that I need the VCDs as fast as possible, it is a friends marriage video.

konverter is a frontend for mencoder

u can try the gui using konverter+mencoder

or mencoer itself

but konvertrer wil be more easy for u

I dont mind if its gui or cli (i prefer cli for error detection), but still there were some errors. Since I was short of time, I copied it to my windows partition, and in windows used nero to directly make a video cd(w/o any conversions).Of all the linux apps I have use, I often have issues with K3b(including compatibility issues with other sytems). Wish k3b was as good as nero for windows. I am not saying it is not good, it is way better than nerolinux which is just trash, but itīd be great if it was just a little better.
