avidemux2 foo.nuv --save foo.avi

MAN is it slow...  2-3 minutes to index, 5-6 to save.  (half-hour show, 
764M -- granted, on an nfs share)  Ok, much faster on the host machine 
(about a minute total).

But it still pulls up the gui, which won't work when automating the 
process via mythweb or from within a screen session. (nor would it 
handle the cutlist, or add meta info)

(And on a curious note, the resulting avi doesn't play in windows -- 
though I assume this is a codec issue (mpeg4), I thought I'd mention it. 
  Plays fine in xine in linux)
