[mythtv-users] transcoded DIVX nuv to avi

I have transcoded a number of shows I would like to put on a DVD.  The
transcoded files play fine in mplayer, but not gxine.  I then tried
converting them to avi containers with:
mencoder  -o 19970224-DS9-Dr.Bashir_I_Presume.avi -vf scale=-1:-1 -oac
copy -ovc copy -of avi /lvm/mythtv/store/1028_20061127135900.nuv

This translates the file to avi very quickly and results in a file
which plays with gxine, but I can't scroll to various positions of the
video.  I think it is lacking the proper index, but I don't know how
to fix it.

I haven't tried burning a DVD to play in our Zenith DVB611 DVD player,
but I doubt it will work correctly with what I have done so far.  I
found a nuv2avi program but it doesn't seemed to be maintained and
didn't successfully compile on this Kubuntu Edgy box.  Any
