In my experience the XVID codec gives a far superior compression to quality ratio than DIVX and other codecs.
This program seems very useful, but I don't even know where to start with picking all the video and audio settings...someone needs to do a write-up of how to use this lol
im having problems with this software. i have the dvd in and when i hit "open dvd" it does nothing. a small window saying "analysis" comes up but stays 0% for the last hr. what the hell...............
converted The Dark Knight last night.
the program took a 700Mb file and converted it to a 1.1Gb file. I knew it would increase but whoa. Oh well, that's what the SD card is intended for.
Works great, though the aspect ratio of TDK is crazy widescreen (21:9?) and still has thick black bars on the top and bottom. Not the program's fault, just THAT much to see in that flick!
If i get time, i'll make a walkthrough later this week. If anyone else beats me then congrats in advance.
(and don't post back that you don't have the DVD as that would make your post seem that you support pirating , but on an UNRELATED NOTE: Redbox is GREAT, only $1 a night)
You are right to be wary. There is much bullcrap. Be wary of me too, because I may be wrong. Make up your own mind after you evaluate all the evidence and the logic. - Mark Rippetoe
