  1. I have used Auto Gordian Knot (AGK) happily for years to convert MPG2 videos to XVID. Recently, every session with AGK has terminated at the beginning of the first pass with a VirtualDubMod error for "out-of-bounds memory access violation". The AGK log shows "Open avi failed."

    My OS is Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. I'm guessing that some recent update to the OS has tightened access to system RAM in a way that breaks the usual AGK process. I'm compleltely stumped on how to fix it.

    That leads me to ask:

    --Has anyone else run into this? If so, do you have any clue as to what I might do to recover use of AGK?

    --Do you have any recommendation for a replacement that would give me what I have valued most about AGK:
    -- set-and forget convenience
    -- automatic cropping of letterbox or pillarbox format
    -- ability to specify size of the output file
    -- two-pass XVID output quality

    (I have used the latest version of DivX Converter. It gives me the convenience I want, but the output quality seems to fall short of two-pass Xvid.)

    Actually, I would be most pleased if I could move up to something that would take 1920x1080 input and give me x264-compressed HD output in .mp4 or .mkv formet, with the convenience of AGK. Any recommendations for that?

    Many thanks for your help.

    AutoGK works for me on Windows 7, but I rarely use it. I have moved on to AVC/H264 encoded with Handbrake and StaxRip.

    If you don't want to move on to MKV or MP4 then avi.Net is not bad as a replacement for AutoGK. I have Windows 7 (32 and 64 bit) and it has worked fine up to some point where I have updated a program or installed a codec? and it no longer works. I spent a lot of time searching for a solution but finally decided it was time to move on - Handbrake, MakemKV , etc...
