Thanks, are those settings for mencoder only?
I try not to use it because it's very heavy on the cpu. Most stuff I watch works fine with no transcoding option. I'm streaming wirelessly to my Sony Bravia.
Just doesn't make much sense to me, for example a 720p mkv which is much larger than an mp4 has such quiet audio compared to an mp4 :/
Quite surprised that no one else has had this problem
