Encoding DVDs with MEncoder

Here is an example on how to encode a DVD using MEncoder.

mencoder dvd://1 -o test.avi -ss 120 -endpos 10 -alang en -slang en -aid 130 -psprobe 1000000 -vf crop=720:446:0:66 -aspect 1.78 -af volume=15 -ovc x264 -x264encopts crf=21:threads=2 -oac mp3lame -lameopts q=2

You can get hints for the audio id, supported languages, aspect ratio, and other values by playing the DVD with mplayer dvd://1 and inspecting the resulting console output.

Once you have found the right options, rerun the command without the -ss and -endpos option to encode the full video.
