And I'll have to agree with Gordon. I've used mecnoder to transcode
several things from MJPEG (what my video capture card spits out) to
MPEG4/DivX. It usually works flawlessly. The only bear is getting it
set up the first time (and figuring out the command line). But once
you've got "a Clue", it works great.

Of course, by now we've drifted WAY off topic...
