	I finally got to watch it - after a battle royal with my LAN.
The video is very pixellated and a bit jerky I suspect that mencoder
is taking more than the frame time to encode some frames and so missing
frames because the compression is too high. Definitely try with a much
higher video bitrate - say at least 2400kbps or even 4800kbps.
