    mplayer comes with an encoder called mencoder.

    you can find out more by:

    man mencoder
    http://www.mplayerhq.hu/DOCS/HTML/en/mencoder.html

    also ffmpeg

    take a look at this too

    All right, brain. You don't like me and I don't like you, but let's just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer. All New Users Read This!!! If you have a grub problem please look at GRUB MANUAL
