To make a dvd-compliant file without re-encoding it:
$ mencoder -mc 0.1 -of mpeg -mpegopts format=dvd -oac copy -ovc copy -o "The Biggest Hits - Right Now.mpg" "The Biggest Hits - Right Now.ts"
to make a dvd-compliant file re-encoding the video stream (re-encoding audio doesn't make mush sense)
this is the very tweaked command line I use (change bitrate with the value you want, in kilobit/second)
$ mencoder -of mpeg -mpegopts format=dvd -oac copy -ovc lavc -lavcopts \
-o "The Biggest Hits - Right Now.mpg" "The Biggest Hits - Right Now.ts"
the above command encode in 1-pass with suboptimal results;
if you want to encode in 2 passes repeat the same command twice appending :vpass=1 the first time and :vpass=2 the second time.
To encode to mp4 you had better ask someone to mencoder-users.
Now that you know a basic command you should read the man page and tweak the encoding process as you _really_ need
(denoise, deinterlace, etc).
