VHS to MPEG2(DVD) with transcode or mencoder?


I want convert my VHS records to DVD. I am installing transcode, ffmpeg, mplayer (with mencoder) and more, and attempting with this command:
mencoder -tv driver=v4l2:device=/dev/video0:normid=0:input=1:amode=0 tv:// -o /home/rade/radni/output.mpg -of mpeg -oac lavc -ovc lavc -lavcopts acodec=ac3:vcodec=mpeg2video:vhq:keyint=25:vbitrate=3000:abitrate=160:scplx_mask=0.2 -vf scale=720:576, but it is, however, avi header. What's wrong?
I dont know to work with transcode (I am installed transcode with enabled v4l2 driver), and I need sample commands for convert signal from VHS video player to MPEG2, without any afterwards reencoding, i.e. MPEG2 which accept dvdauthor.
My english is too bad, sorry.:?
Thank's.

so depsite having "-of mpeg" in there, you say it's still an avi file? what does "head output.mpg -c 100" say? can you provide the full output from that mendcoder command? it looks good to me..

I'm afraid I can't help you much with TV-capture, but I've made a little package called tovid that can convert your AVI into DVD-compatible MPEG2. You might also want to browse through the tovid discussion, since there have been posts by users who have successfully captured video and used tovid to get it into DVD format.

That sounds about right, knowing mencoder. By default it puts output into an AVI container; it's somewhat notoriously bad at MPEG output.

Thank you.
I am find this: http://gv4l.sourceforge.net/ :
" What is Gv4l? Gv4l is a GUI frontend for the V4L (Video For Linux) functions of transcode, used to record video (and audio) streams from a V4L devices, such as tuners and webcams, in encoded (Xvid, DivX, etc.) or raw video formats. "
That is all what I need.
