Normally VLC plays all of my files just fine. But for some reason, if I join two video-files with mencoder, VLC will not play the audio in the new file, while MPlayer plays it just fine.
Note that VLC plays the audio just fine in the separate files(before they are joined)
mencoder -oac copy -ovc x264 ../intro.mov movie.mov -o Final-Video.mov
Audio: mp3, 44100 Hz, 2 channels, s16, 160 kb/s
If I use "-oac mp3lame" instead of "-oac copy" VLC will play the audio-stream, but the quality is less than admirable because the audio gets dropped to 32 kb/s.
Is there a way to encode mp3 audio with a bitrate of 160 kb/s in mencoder?
Or is it a bug in mencoder... or VLC?
I'd be happy to provide any info, just tell me what to type(in the terminal).
This is all part of a video rendering script I use on a lot of large files on a daily basis, so I'd appreciate any solutions that fixes the problem without adding any more encoding/transcoding steps after the mencoder command.
