A how-to guide to transcode DVD to Divx
Authored by: Bellboy9000 on Feb 10, '04 08:51:56PM

I found the info useful to a certain extent, but I need to encode video for the web from an unencrypted DVD. I've found that that getting a DVD into a MOV/MPG format for use on the web is a royal pain. I've used just about everything that versiontracker could cough up.

I did find that the best one for me (so far) is D-Vision2 along with DivX Doctor II (from 3ivx). The only bummer is that you would have to download the 3ivx plugin to view a web movie and I'm trying to avoid making web visitors do that. D-Vision has a great interface and the cropping tools work great--ffmpegX's cropping tools didn't work for me at all.

I just wish that someone would come out with a tool that would take a VOB file to a final MPEG or MOV file without all of the hassle. Anyone know of an app out there that can do all that?

The latest version of the 3ivx codec is somehow different from the previous version in that QuickTime 6 correctly identifies 'new' 3ivx movies as MPEG-4, and can play them without whining about the codec. It always could, but for some reason never "knew" that it could before.
