DivX to mpg video converter

Anyone knows what any software for converting DivX files to mpg (VCD format)? mencoder has problems with mpegs according to its docs, so that option is out. It also has to run off the command-line w/o an X server.

I think transcode would do what you're looking for. It's a relatively simple program to use, and I've created many successful dvds with it.

Use mencoder to convert it into a raw video and raw audio.

There is also ffmpeg.

I already have the ffmpeg filter installed but it doesn't work on asf. Maybe I'm invoking it wrongly?? :
transcode -i foo.asf -V -y mpeg -F v,1 -E 44100 -b 224 -o bar
