Dvdrip


I keep getting bad quality rips. I am using Xvid to rip, and it will not let me rip with Xvid3 or 4 only 2.
also i can not even select the SVCD(mpeg) option. Could someone give me some pointers on a good quality rip svcd/xvid along with what programs you use.

I use DVD::RIP but am just looking for any program that will make good quality rips from DVD to AVI or MPEG.

Thanks

I use DVD::Rip on my mandrake box and it works great. I have a ton of movies backed up to avi's and have not had any problems. Been doing it since MDK 9.0

I was going to answer you earlier but I am actually on the machine I use so here it goes. First off This isa dual 1 gig machine with 1.5gig of ram and a Ultra 160 SCSI drive. Since the encoding is pretty heavy on resources you may want to feed the box some ram. of course you already know how to do the rip. Thats pretty easy. the encode is not to hard. I am using the Divx codec. I use divx4 by default. I tried 5 and didn't like the way the cpu usage went up in Windows. I also use 2 pass encoding, 160kbits/s mp3 for audio, etc ..... here is a screen shot of the transcode tab http://www.pdr60.com/dvdrip.png By the way I am using transcode 6.11 and dvdrip 5.16 here is the dependency listing I have http://www.pdr60.com/dvdrip1.png I am actuallly putting together a web site to help folks with this kind of stuff. By the way That move is pretty good.

Hey PDR60 how did u manage 2 encode using divx4 or 5? I've downloaded the divx codec from divx official site , installed it (with install.sh) but i can't mage to get it 2 transcode my movie with it.

Sorry for the delayed response I had trouble tracking down this thread again. I usually encode with divx4 codec. Are your dependencies all taken care of?? If you don't have divx installed you will get an error report. At the bottom of the error report it will state something like "could not open the divx codec". Ths is usually due to the fct that divx isn't installed. If you need more help just let me know. I'll try to get a how to up on www.linuxloader.com .
