I'm just startingmy DVD-ripping experience. I bought "Saving private
Ryan" and ripped it (w/ vobcopy).
If I play the vob in mplayer it's all OK. So I did a 3 pass encoding:
mencoder IT_1063531-1.vob -oac copy -aid 129 -ovc frameno -o frameno.avi
mencoder IT_1063531-1.vob -oac copy -ovc lavc -lavcopts
vcodec=mpeg4:vhq:vqmin=1:vqmax=31:vbitrate=1300:vpass=1 -aid 129 -o
mencoder IT_1063531-1.vob -oac copy -ovc lavc -lavcopts
vcodec=mpeg4:vhq:vqmin=1:vqmax=31:vbitrate=1300:vpass=2 -aid 129 -o

It all goes well (well... except it takes about 5h20', but I think
that's quite normal, even on an AthlonXP 1900+) and the file is 2037M
(so not more than the 2GB limit), BUT when I play Ryan.avi it's 4:3
instead of 16:9 ! :-(

Do I have to use -vop scale as TFM says in (isn't it for VCD
only?) ?
