mencoder instead of ffmpeg to join or concatenate video files with different audio streams

The problem for me is that I had two videos with different types of audio streams.  ffmpeg would join them but they would not play past the point of the join.

So I used mencoder like below and it joined the audio and made them both mp3 streams and it worked!

-oac mp3lame specifies the audio to be convered into an mp3 stream using the lame codec.

after the oac the two files are the ones to be joined.

the -o is the name of the output file

mencoder -ovc copy -oac mp3lame CME-2-router-dial-peer-part1.mp4 CME-2-router-dial-peer-part2-edited-audio.mp4 -o CME-dial-peer.mp4
