Convert movies to be compatible with ZEN X-Fi media player

Creative - another company which doesn't provide support for non-Windows users. Get with the times, losers!

The ZEN player needs a specific format of movie (bit-rate and aspect ratio). Here's how to do it with mencoder (available for free on all platforms)

 mencoder 'MyMovie.avi' -oac mp3lame -lameopts cbr:mode=2:br=96 -af resample=44100 -srate 44100 -ofps 20 -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:mbd=2:cbp:trell:vbitrate=300 -vf scale=320:240 -ffourcc XVID -o MyMovie4zen.avi
