hi! I usually recorded movies from TV (using dvbstreamer) as MPEG TS.
Sometimes I try to cut out commercials from movies.
To this end I convert MPEG TS to MPEG PS using
# mencoder -quiet -demuxer lavf -profile mpeg.copy ....
so that timestamps are sane; then use
# mplayer -edlout
to mark commercials,
then convert to h264 using
# mencoder -edl

In its usual form -edl is not very precise, it seeks to the nearest keyframe AFAICT ; for this reason there is an option -hr-edl-seek for mencoder . I tried it a few times, but it does not work well

When trying
# mencoder -edl a.edl ....
it happens that the audio and video are badly disaligned;

When trying
# mencoder -demuxer lavf -edl a.edl ....
the audio is not converted, and a lot of errors are printed, such as

Too many video packets in the buffer: (1955 in 33555382 bytes). ETC ETC

BTW , I am using this version:
GIT d292fc90b07d48eef889588541872c7e1d61a93c
SVN 35338

Thanks. a.
