However, if you then want to author bigmovie.mpeg with dvdauthor, say, you
can't. Or at least it's not straightforward. I had to dumpvideo, dumpaudio,
then re-multiplex the two in order to get an mpeg usable by dvdauthor. And
the final product had a significant and annoying A-V difference of a few
seconds. I'd be interested in a good way of authoring the dumped stream.
