DVD to SVCD conversion with acidrip

Does anyone know which video codec to choose to make a svcd file in acidrip? copy, raw, nuv, divx4, lavc, vfw, qtvideo, libdv, xvid, x262? It would be so much easier if they just had an option that said "SVCD". But oh well.

You have the option of using dvd:rip. SVCD is mpeg2. VCD is mpeg1. I suggest using a program that does that..

For you, cause I'm just so damn nice:

The utility ffmpeg has VCD, SVCD, and as well DVD built-in. The utility transcode takes a long, long, long time to encode while ffmpeg or mjpegtools can do it faster.
