You're very welcome.

Not yet. I hadn't really considered trying to do video resizing at this
point for the simple reason that it never occurred to me. Now that you
mention it, it IS a good idea. I'm adding it to my TODO list. Now, if
somebody were feeling generous, they'd write up a patch I could use for
it :)

That could be a failure due to mencoder. I've been very worried about
correcting for that, and I'm not sure how. I may just need to bite the
bullet and include a decent sized png graphic in the script (though I'm
NOT at all happy about that. Anybody got any better ideas?).

That, unfortunately, I've got zero input on. I'm not dealing at all with
the C++ code, so have no idea of the answer.
