    Using StaxRip and the XviD codec, videos encoded up to 3500kbps will play stutter free via USB.
    StaxRip Install
    Guide 1
    Guide 2
    In addition to the StaxRip Tool, the correct Templates are also required.
    The Templates are an outstanding feature that greatly simplifies the UI.
    Templates
    Download the templates and copy them to the templates folder.

    In addition to the StaxRip Tool, you will also need the Templates
    The Templates are an outstanding feature that greatly simplifies the UI.
    Templates
    Download the templates and copy them to the templates folder.

    When I have time I will add a guide for using StaxRip once the Templates are installed.

    The best. It is the only conversion tool I use. One conversion will play on the Philips via USB and the ZVW - Zen Vision W.
    My PBHT - Poor Boy Home Theatre
    btw-The video is much better than the pic, also, the video is not zoomed or stretched, this is StaxRip Default Auto crop.
    The AR=2.0 > Very little cropping and does a nice job of filling the screen.

    I restructured the old Templates with much better results.
    It still underpins XviD Exact Size Ė Bitrate.
    After initial video analysis, set bitrate to 3000, and StaxRip calculates the necessary quality.
    Adjust quality:
    Options > Aimed Quality (percent) > Match StaxRipís calculation.
    At this point resolution can be user defined and locked; however, I prefer the StaxRip defaults.
    Run Compressibility Check

    New XviD Settings:
    Quant TypeĖ H.263 (square pixels) The rectangle MPEG didnít look right.
    Profile- Unrestricted
    Adaptive Quant- OFF
    QPEL- ON
    Max BVOPs- 2
    BVOP sensitivity- 10
    Packed Bitstream- OFF
    Trellis- OFF
    VHQ- ON
    Chroma motion- ON
    Chroma optimizer- ON
    I-Interval- 240

    any help is appreciated

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The NoCrop Template should maintain the original AR of the DVD minus any black bars.

    2 other options:

    You can resize it manually. Example: 720x480=1.5 Aspect Ratio
    1. Load the NoCrop Template
    2. Load the video
    3. After the analysis, change width and height to 720 and 480
    4. Change the quality for desired bitrate or filesize
    Options > Aimed Quality
    5. Run Compressibility Check - The resolution and aspect ratio are locked.

    OR

    If you want the aspect ratio and the resolution to be identical to the original (no black bars will be removed if any):
    1. Load the NoCrop Template.
    2. Hit F8
    3. Automation
    4. UnCheck "Auto Resize Image Size"
    5. Load the video

    Hope that helps

    I'm not crazy about Mediafire, but FileWind is not working.
    I also improved the B-Frames

  10. videos encoded up to 3500kbps will play stutter free via USB.
    Are you sure about that?? I have some video footage, of a starfield expanding towards the viewer, and that definitely stutters also I have one of a river in full flow and that stutters too, as does a particular panning shot across a scene
    .. I know that most stuff plays ok but I suspect the bitrate is a lot lower than 3500k on these clips. The bitrate spike may be higher, but the average bitrate is only 1500k, I know cos I encoded some of them. I think it may be that when you have AC3 sound encoded then the bitrate required for stuttering is a lot less. I might have to experiment with this and report back. Re staxrip is it more or less difficult than fair use wizard or Autogk??.
    What settings do people use on these two other programs? I always have the quality setting to max but this makes encodes take 5, 6 and seven hours..

    Yep
    My test clip was the chase scene in "The Island" with an average DVD bitrate of 9800kbps and a ton of spikes, to be on the safe side, I would not go higher than 3000kbps.
    Additionally, anything above 2700kbps is not noticeable and only increases the filesize.
    I've tried other progs, and nothing comes close. I also posted this info w/templates on another forum and the geeks(myself included) loved it.

    Once you get past the install(w/templates) and the initial familiarization, its a breeze to use.
    However, I would recommend segmenting the DVD or isolating the .VOB files into separate folders, otherwise it is one large .avi file instead of segments/chapters.
