I've been trying to figure out how to mux into a TS stream but it
doesn't look like mencoder or ffmpeg support this? If anyone know how
to do this I'll create a slew of h264 streams. There are some
non-copyrighted test streams available that I can reencode to h264 at
various bitrates with various audio tracks like Daniel asks for.
