I just received my PSP and I am trying to figure out how to get videos on
this device.

Could you provide some additional information:
1.  Can you show me the mencoder command line you are using.
2.  The location on the memory stick where you copy the files.

Given the response you just had from Robin with Perl code on how to select
the right track have you looked at this page:

Peter created a Perl script to handle the transcoding (which I am testing
this morning).  I am sure he would be interested in extending this script to
have it better handle audio tracks.
