Mplayer Stuff

	Dump the stream (to stream.dump):
		mplayer -dumpstream dvd://1

	Accessing a DVD that has been dumped to VOB format:
		mplayer -dvd-device . dvd://

	Codec X to xvid (bitrate could probably be 1500):
		mencoder -oac mp3lame -ovc xvid -xvidencopts pass=1 -xvidencopts bitrate=1500 -o newfile.avi oldfile.avi &&
		mencoder -oac mp3lame -ovc xvid -xvidencopts pass=2 -xvidencopts bitrate=1500 -o newfile.avi oldfile.avi
		rerun with pass=2 for better encoding

	Splitting files up:
		< clef> so if i have three 450 MB files and want to make them into two CDs, i merge them with avimerge, then split them with mencoder.
		< clef> mencoder -o diskA.avi -endpos 690mb -oac copy -ovc copy large.avi
		< clef> then check the last second timestamp in the output of that mencoder run, and make the second half with ...
		< clef> mencoder -o diskB.avi -oac copy -ovc copy -ss 1234 large.avi

	used to find out the lenth of the titles
