You can do it with just mencoder too.
mencoder -of mpeg -vf scale=720:576 -ovc lavc -lavcopts
vcodec=mpeg2video:mbd=2:keyint=25:vrc_minrate=600:vbitrate=2500 -oac lavc -af
lavcresample=44100 -srate44100 -mpegopts format=mpeg2 infile.avi -o
Not sure about all the settings in that, it's a while since I used it. The
bitrates above may or may not be correct.
I'd strongly suggest anyone using mplayer/mencoder read the mplayer and
mencoder users list linked from the mplayer home page.
