Splitting videos with mencoder

YouTube does not allow videos to be longer than 10 minutes. I really have the need to split videos... Googling for this issue brought me to MisterHowTo.com.

Splitting a video looks like this (first 6 minutes and 5 seconds):

$ mencoder -endpos 00:06:05 -ovc copy -oac copy leeuw-tuominen_0-2.AVI -o leeuw-tuominen_0-2_a.avi

And the second part with offset 6 minutes 5 seconds:
