Hi Moritz,

Sorry it sounded terse.  There was no need for me to add the command line or 
console output.  I took the documentation here literally:


profile integer

    Select the mpeg2 profile to encode:


        Spatially Scalable

        SNR Scalable

The Profile options have quotes around them.  Probably to high-light them in 
the document.  As Limin stated, you don't put in quotes.  It was also 
confusing because it asks for an integer, but should be string.
