    Actually, those programs require you to have already ripped the DVD to the hard drive; they don't rip the DVD for you. Are you attempting to run AutoGK on an actual (retail) DVD disc?

    Off the top of my head, I don't know what programs will rip a DVD for you and automatically convert to DivX/Xvid, but they're probably not as good as ripping the DVD yourself and then feeding the results to AutoGK, or similar.
    If cameras add ten pounds, why would people want to eat them?

  5. the DVD isnt retail...hence no Encryption..
    I dunno, im new to ripping thats why i asked.. i know how to rip a movie onto the PC... but dunno what to use to convert the VOBs (as 1 structure) to DivX

    Are you converting directly from the DVD? Try copy the DVD to your HDD first.

    And read a GUIDE, http://www.divx-digest.com/articles/autogk.html

  7. DGIndex + AviSynth + VirtualDub.

    It may require a bit of work though.

  9. You asked for advice. Why not try following it?

  10. well still the same...
    have copied all the VIDEO_TS onto drive and when i add the IFO file it says error parsing IFO.....?

  11. well I think i sussed it.. its not the VIDEO_TS.IFO file.. its the VTS_02_0.VOB (for some reason) and choose the largest RPG....

    BUT it encodes into AVI... i want DivX file not DivX encoded AVI

    Fair Use Wizard is another program you might want to look at.

    If you want a Divx container then you need to use either Divx Author or Dr Divx. You will have to use DVd decrypter or VOB2MPG to extract a single video first, then convert.

  14. Rip the DVD with DVD Decryptor in IFO mode. That will give you the main title as a single VOB file. Then use Divx Converter to make a .DIVX file.

    But .DIVX files are .AVI files, just renamed. All you have to do to make an .AVI file into a .DIVX file (assuming the video is encoded with the Divx codec) is rename it. .DIVX can contain additional information like subtitles, chapters, menus, etc. but it doesn't have to.

    Changing ".AVI" to ".DIVX" doesn't change the container. It just changes the extension, nothing more.

  20. AVI and DIVX are the same container. Divx just adds a few extensions.

    As avi is a subset of divx (or: divx is an extension of avi), renaming a.avi to a.divx works, yes, but it does in no way alter the fact that it is a plain AVI.

  22. ok

    I would also like to choose the size of the files if possible

    Why this urge to create a divx, as it seems like you seem to be satisfied with the features of avi, as long as it doesn't say ".avi" at the end?
    Anyway, guns1inger gave you the answer: https://forum.videohelp.com/topic345246.html#1807470
    TDA 3 can be used too.

  25. You've been given the names of several applications that can create .DIVX files.

    But if you aren't including menus, chapters, and subtitles, there is no difference between an AVI and DIVX file except the extension. The AVI container (an instantiation of the more general RIFF container) was designed to be extended. So The argument over whether a file is DIVX or AVI is simply a semantic issue.

  26. yeah just the main movie...
    SimpleDIVX isnt working for me..it just creates log files and NFO's
    DivX Author seems to work but was gunna take 3-4Hours.. a bit too long I think

    DivX Converter seems OK but it doesnt allow to change any settings such as output name & destination..

    Where does it stick the output file?

    I think it's a crappy little program. By default it puts its files in the Divx\Movies folder, usually c:\program files\divx\movies.

    The speed of converting to divx is mostly a matter of the Divx encoder settings. What program you use doesn't make as much difference (unless you're doing a lot of filtering).
