Demuxer info software already present... help please.

sorry about this, I know it kinda the wrong place for this question but I dont know where else to go

I am trying to compile a DVD to mpeg4 (.avi) with mencoder in windows ME and XP , currently I use two .bat files to do this.

First prev.bat
"mencoder.exe" dvd://3 -dvd-device E:\ -o C:\monkey\null -ovc lavc -oac copy -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vbitrate=1600:vhq:vpass=1 -ss 0:10 -endpos 0:20

then pal.bat
"mencoder.exe" dvd://3 -dvd-device E:\ -o c:\monkey\monkey.avi -ovc lavc -oac copy -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vbitrate=1600:vhq:vpass=2

it all seems fine until I try to run the .avi afterwards, I've tryed a few different systems like

mencoder dvd://3 -dvd-device E:\ -oac mp3lame -lameopts vbr=3:br=128:q=0 -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vme=5:mbd=2:v4mvrecmp=2:cmp=2:mbcmp=2:trell:cbp:mv0:vbitrate=880 -o c:\monkey\file.avi
set in_path=d:\dvd\movie_name
set in_avi=movie_name.avi
set out_path=d:\kdvd\movie_name
set out_m2v=movie_name
"mencoder.exe" -include MC.ini -lavcopts keyint=15 %in_path%\%in_avi% -o %out_path%\%out_m2v%
lavcopts=vcodec=mpeg2video:vrc_eq=tex:vmax_b_frames=2reme=2recmp=2:vstrict=-1:scplx_mask=0.3:vqblur=0:mbqmin=1:vqmin=1:lmin=0.3:vrc_buf_size=1835:vbitrate=1750:vrc_maxrate=2800 :aspect=1.3333:autoaspect=1:intra_matrix=8,9,12,22,26,27,29,34,9,10,14,26,27,29,34,37,12,14,18,27,29 ,34,37,38,22,26,27,31,36,37,38,40,26,27,29,36,39,38,40,48,27,29,34,37,38,40,48,58,29,34,37,38,40,48, 58,69,34,37,38,40,48,58,69,79:inter_matrix=16,18,20,22,24,26,28,30,18,20,22,24,26,28,30,32,20,22,24, 26,28,30,32,34,22,24,26,30,32,32,34,36,24,26,28,32,34,34,36,38,26,28,30,32,34,36,38,40,28,30,32,34,3 6,38,42,42,30,32,34,36,38,40,42,44 -ofps 25.000

but I get the same result every time?!

"Demuxer info software already present!
** warning: this is no extended AVI header"

and that line repeats a few dozen times....... can anyone tell me what this means please?

can't see anythign wrong in the syntax, i'd suggest checking the mplayer-users email list for much more detailed help. They'll want an awful lot more mencoder output than you've provided here though....

and *please* use a sensibe thread title next time... cheers
