So just to be sure... Would this work for rencoding to DVD?

mencoder -of mpeg -mpegopts format=dvd -oac copy -ovc lavc -lavcopts 
vcodec=mpeg2video copy -o file.mpg file.ts

Also what is the difference between rencoding to DVD and doing:

mencoder -of mpeg -mpegopts format=dvd -oac copy -ovc copy -o file.mpg 
file.ts

I know this is just 'remuxing' but what is remuxing - and what is the 
difference between this and rencoding to DVD?

Sorry for the n00b like questions, but I only need someone to tell me 
once and then I will know.

Best regards,

GJ
