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 don't get it... the 7th result on the second link I gave you has a very well explained guide (it's written by people from Gentoo, but remember that Linux shares 99% of it's software between distributions). Read it carefully, it says how to do it there, i've read it.
Also, the first result of the second link too, takes you to a forum where the latest answer links you to http://www.transcoding.org/cgi-bin/transcode .
Thanks objorkum. I use tovid a lot. That's where I started. Tovid produced a mpg where when played the video raced by in the first 20% of the clip while the sound play normally, if I'm able to explain well enough. In the ffmpeg command offered above I get the following results:
ffmpeg version 0.4.9-pre1, build 4718, Copyright (c) 2000-2004 Fabrice Bellard
built on Dec 10 2004 17:35:43, gcc: 3.4.3 (Mandrakelinux 10.2 3.4.3-1mdk)
Input #0, asf, from 'Wakebrd_movie.wmv':

Stream #0.0: Audio: wmav2, 44100 Hz, stereo, 128 kb/s
Stream #0.1: Video: WMV3, 720x480, 1.00 fps
Output #0, mpeg, to 'Wakebrd_movie_clip.mpeg':
Stream #0.0: Video: mpeg1video, 720x480, 5.00 fps, q=2-31, 200 kb/s
Stream #0.1: Audio: mp2, 44100 Hz, stereo, 64 kb/s
Stream #0.1 -> #0.0
Stream #0.0 -> #0.1
[mpeg1video @ 0xb7f22128]MPEG1/2 doesnt support 5/1 fps
I believe the key is in the last line. Tovid uses ffmeg. When I use tovid it gives me a mpeg but the video is 5 times faster than the sound.
