I hope you don't get this as a offense, but once a good friend of mine teached me that the best way to learn (and he is right) is to do some research yourself, at least until you get stuck.

So my only help will be: http://www.google.com.ar/search?q=li...es-AR:official

Edit: This produced better results: http://www.google.com.ar/search?hs=0...BAsqueda&meta=
A little difference on a search engine can vary the results, the better details you provide, the better results you'll get.

And to help you a little, MPG = MPEG.

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 .

Should be: -of mpeg and not -of mpegsa

Something like:
Code:
mencoder sahan-budunyadonmez-www.turkmizah.net.wmv -o sahan-budunyadonmez-www.turkmizah.net.mpg -ovc lavc -oac mp3lame -of mpeg
PS: Thanks for trying it, I hope you can see that you can start finding out things by yourself.

In the guide it says that lavc codec is part of ffmpeg, you may want to try installing it. You can get it from: http://www.linuxpackages.net/pkg_details.php?id=6529

And/or also some frontends for mencoder that can help you setup all the necessary switches to make a VCD:

You can use ffmpeg
Code:
ffmpeg -i source.wmv transcoded.mpeg
ffmpeg is not included in Slackware. You can download the source from http://ffmpeg.sourceforge.net

It is easy to compile.

Or download one of this packages from linuxpackages.net

The above command didn't work for me at all on a .wmv I created in microsoft movie maker. It had a problem with a 5/1 fps conversion or something like that.

I had better success using: mencoder movie.wmv -o movie.avi -ovc lavc -oac mp3lame though that resulted in a video of much poorer video quality.

I'm still looking.

Tovid is great:

http://tovid.sourceforge.net/

Then use f.ex K3b to burn the VCD.

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':
Duration: 00:00:55.6, bitrate: 843 kb/s
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 mapping:
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.

Ive also been having problems with wmv and framrate problems, I think Ive ovecome this problem using tovid with the (-fps "25:1") switch for pal. Im using tovid 0.22 and the output is pretty fine.
Code:
 tovid -pal -svcd -fps "25:1" -in infile.wmv -out outfile
