Frankly, I prefer to use RMVB nowadays compared to avi. It's much
smaller and it packs more punch. 

eg: I feel that it's nicer. Mayb that's because I don't know how to
encode it properly using mencoder. @700kbits, the quality I get is
usually poorer compared to whet I can get using rmvb.

I won't contest to that, But since I don't know how to do it using Linux
using rmvb, I've used the windows counterpart called "autorv9"

which works great.

(ps: I can usually get _very_ nice qualities of a 40min sitcom on
DVD->RMVB at 220MB)
