Now ive got nuvexport correctly reading the video size (see previous patch), ive hit another problem, which I think ive fixed.

If i use it as is, i get VERY broken video, with loads of green blocks all over it.

It seems that dropping the -x mpeg2 flag to transcode fixes the problem. No idea why :). Transcode seems to be able to work out for itself what format the video is in.

The patch is below.

After applying these 2 patches, I get perfect XviD output :) yay! 

Chris - are you prepared to accept one or both of these patches? its annoying to have to re-apply them each time I book out the CVS. I think the first one is fairly non-controversial, whereas the second one may need a switch if it breaks the encode for any other people.
