Hi Richard:  AFAIR transcode was used in MythArchive to perform 
shrink-to-fit in creating a DVD.  The code for mythburn.py now only uses 
mythtranscode, which is an entirely different beast that does a 
different job, and shrink-to-fit is now handled by M2VRequantiser.  I 
posted on the rpmfusion list some time ago suggesting that the rpmfusion 
package for that ought to be updated.

Of course I'm not a myth dev...
