Weird to say, but it worked (ffmpeg) - i even saw garbage w /encodings - like w/ mplayer variant but what was marvelous w/ PERL: it did not complain about non-UTF char.s. So. i'm pondering on what to do: either it is PERL's error that just did not triger here for some unknown to me reason, and therefore i will yet have same problems that i do have now w/ mplayer, if i choose ffmpeg.
