Video Encoding Using Mencoder
An example of using mencoder for video encoding
Mencoder is a powerful tool for encoding video files. Here is an example usage where the input video is converted to mpeg4 at 1300kbps and mp3 at 160kbps. You can put it in a batch file and the %1 will allow you to drop files on the icon as input.
