Looking for the best DVD-divx ripping software

Discussion in 'DVD Video' started by LightningBit.News, Oct 18, 2003.

  1. I was just wondering ... what would you people (the specialists or techies)
    find the best software to rip DVD to divx?

    on a notebooks harddrive to watch

    In my humble opinion it's an outstanding program to go from DVD to DivX or

    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.

    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.
