Of course!

But you misunderstand:
On this mailing list, whenever you ask for help, you have 
to provide both your command line and your console output 
if you want people to answer.
Your question is a good example to explain why:
If you had provided your console output originally, 
neither Moritz not myself would have given useless 
answers (after spending time on your question) because 
the answer is part of the console output:

(Did your read and test this?)

It doesn't matter what I "expect", I cannot remember 
every possible issue with the usage of FFmpeg, that's 
why I added above warning.

> I said there is an AC3 track contained.

Yes, but this is not the relevant issue: Several 
codecs will trigger the message above (because they 
are not well supported in MPEG-1 system streams).

> Which muxer is it? I didn't find it.

$ ffmpeg -formats
lists both the vob and the dvd muxer.
Use one of them.

This should not be necessary: Contrary to the ts muxer, 
the mpegps muxers are supposed to work fine.

You can give your output file any name you want;-)
