Same problem here; there are several threads both here and on the -dev 
list that are dancing around the issue, but no one seems to have nailed 
it down quite yet.  I try to track CVS/SVN, and I first noticed this 
problem when I upgraded to then-current CVS in early June, I think.

MPEG2 -> MPEG4 auto-transcodes to come out all stuttery.  I've been

another was done just the other day, so if I get a chance I'll upgrade 
this week and see if things are better.  I'm currently running SVN from
