If you have access to a Windows machine, you might try the Matroska Stream
Instead of inserting empty samples, it simply changes the timecodes on the
Blocks.  It allows you to offset both the video and audio by any amount.  It
also allows appending of tracks, (yes you can append an audio track to a video
track, but that's not very useful is it.  ;)  I honestly don't know though how
mplayer handles these files so if you could comment on that, it would be great.
