Kino crashes with mencoder ripped .avi

Hallo, I've ripped a video from a self burned DVD to a .avi file with:

mencoder -oac mp3lame -ovc libdv

Now I wanted to edit the videofile with kino but every time I try to open the .avi file I get an segmentation violation and kino crashes. Does anyone now how to encode the file with mencoder, so that kino can read it or wich video editing tool can handle the avi file that was created by mencoder?

Thank you!

not all DV AVIs created equal

Kino requires a DV AVI where there is a single frame interleaving between audio and video. Most DV AVIs are created that way. Depending upon the input, mencoder does not interleave audio in a way that Kino likes--one video frame's amount of audio samples per chunk. You can use ffmpeg to convert it to raw DV file without the lengthy re-encoding, but you will need a fair amount of disk (you probably already realize that):

ffmpeg -i the.avi -vcodec copy -acodec copy out.dv

I think that ffmpeg command will work, but I have not tried it.
