On thing I've been meaning to try but haven't gotten around to - try taking one of the offending AVI/WMV videos and transcoding it with a Windows tool that will make it play right on the BlackBerry. Then, take that transcoded file and compare it's internals (using ffmpeg, perhaps?) against the internals of a file created by mencoder that *doesn't* work, and see what it is that's the difference.

Once we figure out what it is exactly the newer BB's don't like, I'm sure it'll be trivial to find some switch or option in mencoder to fix it. (well, at least I hope it would be )
