1) use either -of mpeg for mpeg(dvd etc.) or -of lavf (for mp4 and 
others), not both at the same time
2) use only once -faacopts
3) br=NN stands for bitrate in NN kb/s, so br=128 is a good choice

the bitrate in kb/s

it's way too low to make sense

you missed the video codec of the output stream: either -ovc copy or one 
of the  many formats available
-ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:..... followed by the appropriate 
lavcopts for the format you want to have;
read mencoder's docs for more details.

Please, don't top-reply
