OK well thanks for trying to help, but it's still not working. I can't 
see why you guys can't just occasionally give a straight answer. I mean 
when I asked, how to you convert the file named "The Biggest Hits - 
Right Now.ts" to a DVD (and/or Ipod) compatable format/s and then 
specifically asked if you could supply the full one line command to 
handle this conversion, you simply throw a bunch of mencoder options at 
me - which to be honest I have no previous experience of - or of how 
they are arranged.

I could try asking my question again I guess. What is the single one 
line full command/s exactly to convert the file I have named "The 
Biggest Hits - Right Now.ts" to

a) DVD video?

b) Ipod compatable video?

In other words what would it look like if you typed this command out in 
a console and intended to convert this file yourself?

"Please don't top post.'

Sorry I have no idea what top posting is (nor can I summon the energy to 
really care very much) other than it sounds like some geek was having a 
bad day and didn't like the way the words were aranged on a particular 
page - and who then told his other geek friends about it (having nothing 
else better to think about) and who then pursuaded them that it was a 
bad idea too. However since I don't know what it is, or know why it 
matters very much (which it probably doesn't) I am unlikely to know how 
stop doing it.

In any case NM - maybe I really will get a more straightforward answer 
on the mencoder users mailing list.

As I said, thanks all the same for trying your best to help.
