    Dvd --> Divx

    Is there 1 single tool that can do this entire process?
    Every-time I look into this i seem to fin endless amounts of tools listed and required to do what seems to be like a fairly simple task...


    I mean if we can get tools that Rip/Then encode MP3's, surely there is one to do the same for dvd to divx?

    DVDx: pop in a DVD, set all the settings, click record.

    it's not asd fast as, say, Gordian Knot - but unlike GK it doesn't require a degree in particle physics to operate. Generally, just make sure you've correctly set the INdex/Track & iDCT on the input tab, and the codec & zoom settings on the output tab (making sure you click Whole before starting to get the whole movie). if you want to make each file 699mb max, use that setting too.

    oh, and the output filter controls a lot of image quality. TAP Bicubic is slowest, Nearest Neighbor is fastest, the former looks fruity the latter like ass. Most poeple use Bilinear as a compromise (since Bicubic takes so bloody long)

    yep.

    gordian knot use: load the GK front end, click the smartripper button, hope you guess the settings right, rip the dvd to disk, click the dvd2avi button, create a new avi frameserver (paying close attention to the random offset inserted by DVD2AVI for kicks), hope it workes, get pissed off, go and have a beer.

    DVD2SVCD dude. Its only a CD more and can be played on DVD players! Bilinear is well worth the effort imo.

    I use DVD2SVCD, cinecraft encoder - 4 pass VBR with bilinear. Full DVD takes about 6 hours on my 2.8C, but i leave the AC3 sound intact instead of reencoding into 44.1 stereo (down from 14hrs on my 1.4Tbird/DDR266).

    Could never get my head round GK :| if i had todo Avi id make an uncompressed mpg and convert in vdub cause i prefer the software.
    I dont like sig pics so i turn off sigs Which doesnt help when i dont know what ive written here! DOH!

    No no no! SVCD is not the way to go. This format /must/ die.

    The maximum resolution is 480x480 (using non-square pixels!), and although the quality is reasonable the resolution just isnt there.

    The only practical uses are if you have a set top DVD player that supports them... I'm happy enough playing xvid rips on my networked modded xbox.

    There are more modern formats which have a lot more capability and performance benefits, so get over to www.doom9.org and learn about the formats.

    No SVCDs are great. I encode mine in DVD size - 720x540 (iirc) with bilinear filtering, 4 pass VBR and AC3 sound. The quality is superb.

    I *know* the different formats thank you very much, but until they release a software that is "setup and click" then come back in 6 hours i will continue to encode everything in SVCD. They dont even make a good setup and click program for divx/xvid even! let alone any other format.

    I would prefer todo my stuff in divx 5/ogg (ogm) but again it requires checking on its progress every hour with the current software which doesnt suit me at all.

    Also 99% of DVD players dont play anything other then mpeg1/2 and those that do play divx are fussy buggers. I like to play my stuff on my DVD player with a good sound setup. I dont want to own a hacked xbox, nor can i afford a HTPC right now. I cant understand how that is the "only practical use" when divx doesnt even have that.

    However, most of the time now i just do DVD to DVD-R
