    This guide will show you how to reencode an AVI/DivX/XviD to XviD or DivX that should work on most DivX DVD Players like the Philips 642. If you have problem playing the avi,divx,xvid on your standalone try this.


    Tools required
    Latest AutoGK beta.


    Guide
    Install AutoGK.
    Install the AutoGK beta update.

    Start AutoGK
    1. Change to File
    2. Open the avi
    2a. Press CTRL-F9 and select Enable standalone support and ESS under .compatibility and Standalone chipset
    3. Set the output size
    4. Add job
    5. Start


    DonE!


    Problems and Tips
    Click on Advanced settings to change to DivX, you must install the DivX codec first.

    If you can't open AVI be sure to install the latest AutoGk beta.

    Audio sync problems, usually if the audio is VBR(variabel bitrate)
    Use Virtualdub to convert the audio to WAV, open the video and
    select Video->Direct Stream Copy
    select Audio->Full processing mode
    select File->Save AVI and save as a new AVI
    Only the audio will be reconverted to WAV, the video will be copied. Use this new video in AutoGK.

    2a. Don't forget to actually enable ESS/MTK standalone support with Ctrl-F9...

    this way you rencode the avi though and you have possible quality loss right?

    What does ESS support do in this case? Can it affect the audio sync or overscan?

    Try ripping in IFO mode and RIP just the video you want to encode. For the main movie just do the main movie files etc.

    By default, AutoGK uses a couple of Custom Quant Matrices when doing XviD encodes. ESS chipset based players don't support much in the way of CQM, and if the ESS box is checked, it then switches to either the MPEG or H.263 matrix which all standalones support. Which it uses depends mostly on the results of the compress test. It's nothing to do with audio synch or overscan.

    Perhaps there was a delay when the audio was muxed in the original AVI. I don't think there's any way for AutoGK to know if there was a delay, or what it was. Fix it yourself using Nandub or VDubMod.

    I had this happen once using FILE MODE in DVD Decrypter because somehow a snippet of a menu got into the start of the file and threw the audio off by a couple of seconds.

    I ripped it again using IFO mode and got just the video without that snippet of menu at the start and of course the audio was in sync.

    Follow the guide. Try the ESS option as well as the MTK/SIGMA option. One or the other is bound to work.

    could someone help explain the 4:3 features in the hidden menu? I would like to convert my 2.20+ ratio xvids to 4:3 xvids, to play on my standalone.

    1 .aspect - check 'Overide'?
    check 4:3?

    2 .detect 43(Global Option) - check 'Detect and force...'?

  18. Hi-

    It's definitely not 1. That's for when DGIndex says it's 16:9 and it's really 4:3, or vice versa. Those instances are very rare.

    As for 2, I'm pretty sure it's for those times that AutoGK takes a 1.33:1 movie and hands you back something slightly different. So, you use it to force a true 1.33:1.

    You can do what you want in AutoCrop->Force Cropping Of, and fill in the numbers. You'll have to know what you're doing to get it just right, though. And it's a damn stupid idea if you ask me, chopping off the sides of a movie. But you didn't ask that.

    What you want to do is much easier in the full Gordian Knot.

    Does this strategy work if your standalone does not support divx?

    I found out why my audio was out of sync every time I used AutoGK.

    It's because the audio stream of the AVI was VBR so I had to extract the full WAV audio stream.

    When someone figures out the dub issue, please let me know. I'm new to all of this. I converted to DivX and the quality is excellent, but the audio is out of sync by one or two seconds. I am trying both ESS and MTK. It would be nice if it worked.

    Ambimom:
    Use Virtualdub
    select Video->Direct Stream Copy
    select Audio->Full processing mode
    select File->Save AVI and save as a new AVI
    Only the audio will be reconverted to WAV, the video will be copied. Use this new video in AutoGK.

    I capture a VHS tape (~4 Hours) with virtualdub.
    I use picvideo mjpeg for video codec and PCM audio for Audio
    I run the file through AutoGK (latest betas always) to convert the whole VHS tape (with no drop frames / problems etc) to XviD

    The audio after 90 min turns out of synch

    I use the same avi file to encode to mpeg 2. No problem

    So, there is something wierd with AutoGK and long files. Tested on 15 tapes so far

    The virtual dub utility that activates with the Auto GK is 1.5.4.1 but I took your advice and downloaded the latest version 1.6.10.

    I ran the file through Virtual Dub first; and then Auto GK.

    Unfortunately, same result. The first 5 minutes are in sync, and then it just goes off by 1 or 2 seconds.

    Thanks anyway.

  25. This is not the way to do this, sound sync is always a problem and AutoGK is far too slow.

    Use this
    http://www.download.com/VSO-DivXtoDVD

    It's free, it has never failed to convert any problem .AVI file I have ever come across, and it's very fast. A one hour video takes approx 30 mins to convert. There are no options to choose. You can stream or burn the resulting .VOB files.

    Thanks for the advice but I already have software that converts to DVD. I just wanted to watch on a standalone DivX player instead of on my computer without having to do the conversion to DVD.

    It all got too frustrating...

    so I returned the DivX player to the store... and I'm back watching on my DVD player or on my computer.

    I appreciate everyone trying to help. I guess I'm not technical enough to figure all this out yet.

    THANKS EVERYONE!

    Found a way to get audio in sync.

    take ur avi file. the one that works in sync, even if it has gmc etc.
    go into Vdub and open it.

    on video-> full process mode. and hit compression. use xvid (xvid.dll)
    on audio-> full process mode. hit compression . lame MP3 with 32kb seemed fine for me.

    hit save avi. and it should work. check with mpeg4modifier and see if gmc, qpel is gone and mpeg custom is listed.

    the new file might be a bit bigger than the original.
    tried to do what baldrick said, ie do that vdub configuration mentioned above, no luck.

    hope this helps-
    And All that could have been...

    Does AGK understand .sub and .idx files?

    I have an avi called myvideo.avi together with myvideo.sub and myvideo.idx but there's nothing in the subitle dropdown list.

    Am I missing something?

    If I can get that fixed, I want to burn the subtitles into the avi. Do I just set the Target Quality to 100% or is there more to it than that?

    Thanks
