on a notebooks harddrive to watch

Check out http://www.vidomi.com
In my humble opinion it's an outstanding program to go from DVD to DivX or
XVid.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why we shouldn't allow additives in
candy.

Daniel,

I downloaded and briefly tried out Dr. Divx and Vidomi some
while back (same version as presently available 469). I
uninstalled both after a few tests but can't recall why - it's
an age thing.

Does Vidomi support multiple pass encoding, ac3 copying (demux -
remux), mp3 at high bit rates. These seem to be the main
missing ingredients I recall in rejecting some converters. Some
have auto-cropping but offer no manual fine tuning (or they
allow setting values without a display of the result).
Deinterlacing controls have been missing from some?

More speed would always be nice, but the encoder is the real
issue here. Divx 5.1 is nearly 1/2 the speed of 5.02 (in other
words, the older version is almost twice as fast as the new).
But my goodness 5.1 makes pretty pictures;-0)

FlaskMPEG is perhaps at first daunting. But settings can be
retained in your own library making its typical use only a few
buttons away from start to finish. Plus it allows spliting
large videos where you really want to split them. Sadly, it
lacks a batch processor.

XMPEG was a very nice enhancement of the FlaskMPEG shell.
Unfortunately I've not found an update of it to the current
level of Flask.

Billy Joe,

I think Vidomi supports multiple pass encoding, but I am not sure about the
other things you asked about.
Have a look at the documentation at: http://www.vidomi.com/docs.php
There's also a guide at: http://www.divx-digest.com/articles/xvidvidomi.html
You sound like you know a hell of a lot, I am still a beginner.
I hope you find the answers you were looking for.
Daniel

Daniel,
thanks for the refresher material on Vindomi.
It does look like a decent product. I probably dropped it for
lack of the ac3 demux. Other features look interesting.
