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

    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.

  9. 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.
