You also might wanna keep your eye on the new codec XVID.
If you really wanna use the DivX4.xx and have less quality.....

NeverLift it is a NewBie guide for people who are only starting out im not saying to stick wit this method but its a easy way to start in the DivX Society
yea i also suggest to check out the new XVID Codec for advance DivX Encoders out there..it totally in the legue of DivX4 and DivX3 and it only in alpha state,might even surpass the two major codecs it in the future
Huy Pinoy2201 ... kamusta kabayan. Kaso sino naman may gusto manood nang Divx. Diba mas mabuti kung ang output eh pwede I play sa Standalone DVD player

about DVDx and divx
I am using directly DVDx 1.8 to rip my DVD and to compress them into divx but i have a problem , each time i play the movie with windows media player parts of the movie are on some kind of fast forward and we cant hear the audio .
it happens several time each ripping .
Please someone help me !!! by the way i have the video codec 4.1 , downloaded from the divx site
Have you tried playing it with 'The Playa'
help! i cant load IFOs, i do everything rite but when i try opening the IFO i get this error "MPEG2DEC: Error during decoder initilisation" i tried messing with all the options, but to no avail. please help.
I not sure if Im posting in the right place here for a reply, but everytime I try to create Divx file from DVD file I always get 2 files. After over 6 hours of encoding the 1st file doesnt play and the 2nd file gets the last 10minutes of the movie and looks and sounds perfect.
What am i do wrong? Im using DVDx 1.8a. and have both divx codes 3.11 an 4.12 installed.

I have divx movies that are at least an hour and a half long and are in one .avi file....... how would I go about getting it to be one and so that I can fit it onto a 80min CD-R? I really appreciate a speedy reply

Dosen't anyone want to help me
hey im finally getting time to mess around with ripping dvds. but im having just a minor problem with dvdx 2.0. when i open the ifo for my movie it only encodes sections at a time... is that how it works?? or is there a way in dvdx that i can encode the whole movie in one shot. ive done what the guide said and picked the file with longest running time but it stops and i have to rename the next section of the encoding so it wont overwrite the previous encoding section. any help would be nice. thanks
man you all are having a lot of trouble.
without going into much detail, I use smartripper to rip the dvd.
Then under video select the IFO and make sure you push the "whole botton".
Get the latest version of DivX, Smartripper, and DvdX.
I have had no trouble with this program. I don't know about this guide. I think someone needs to make a new guide.
Maybe ill work on this. If someone can tell me the name and/or location of a screen capture program I will make a better guide.
Please e-mail me with info on a screen capture program and i will go to work
From post above:
If you have trouble running windows then you have no right trying to rip or produce VCD's, DVD's Divx, or any type of films. Pretty soon there will be a program that will make all this a peice of cake, untill then leave it up to the pro's
Everyone has to start somewhere. And having said that......
Um, I am definately a noob when it comes to this movie stuff but I *can* tell you this -
You don't need a special screen capture program to get regular screen captures.
When you have something on the screen - just hit "Print screen" on your keyboard.
Then go to your graphics editing program such as Paintshop Pro or whatever and "Paste". Crop it down to what you want and save.
I'm hoping this guide will be updated soon
Doesn't sound like you have trouble running windows to me so why would you take offense to my comment?
If you know how to run a basic opperating system then I'm sure you can pick up on all this ripping and producing of DivX and VCD's. ect...
Not quite sure I understand your complaint.
If someone can't figure out how to run windows then they need to spend more time learning the basics before they jump in the deep end.
You may be a Newbie but eveyone is at one time or another.
I look foward to possibly D/Ling some of your rips one day.
I am not trying to discurage anyone from learing. We are here in vcdHELP
wich is the best place to learn in my opion. Glad you found us and I hope you find helpfull guides in here and become a pro real soon.
I just hope you know how to turn off your computer when you finish your ripp.
see what I mean?
Best luck to you!!
By the way. to everyone in here wanting to rip DVD to Divx may I suggest the most simple program in the world
Simply use smartripper to rip the dvd to hard drive.
then use a calculator to calculate bitrate.
Open the first .vob
write down all the info
if DVD2AVI calls the Video type "Film" then it is NTSC 23.97
other wise it will say NTSC for 29.97 Or Pal for 24 ect..
then use Vidomi. Under settings go threw all the settings, plug in all info.
crop the image under "Select soure range"
I think I will make a guide for this one. There is no metion of it here in VCDHELP and I think it is the easiest program to use.
Good luck all. Happy ripping

Please forgive me.
Hey BTW - I just did my first rip last night
Not too shabby, if I do say so myself.
We're suppose to turn our computers off after a rip?!

I also ripped it with SmartRipper as well, thinking it might be a bad rip, didn't change, and I tried different movies as well.
I am encoding at the same freq (NTSC), and at 720 x 480.
My question is:
Have you heard of this happening before, and in your experience is it a ripping issue or an encoding issue(settings)?
Any help would be appriciated.
i did everything right, then at the last part, when i am suppose to open up the IFO file, it says, no corresponding vob file found. When in fact there are VOB files in that folder, and everything was done properly. Tell me what i am doing wrong, or what is happening,thanks a lot.
sorry wrong postBig_Jit

not sure if this topic is still alive or not but i followed the guide and my rip worked flawlessly thanks a lot pinoy!
I only have one question, the sound and video in my movies are really good but when i try to skip forward/back the sound is thrown way off. How can i stop it from doing this so i can easily skip threw a movie without worrying about the sound screwing up.
