Or you can use the instructions I just posted in the mpeg2->mpeg2 thread
to do it manually.  All that is needed is a way to automatically detect
which parameters to pass to mencoder, and you could easily have an easy
to use solution.  One of the perl scripts out there has code to do this
(maybe it is nuvexport, I dunno, I don't keep up with these things)
