Publisher's Description

DVDx allows you to convert DVD video to VCD 2.0 or SCVD 1.0 in one step (including multiplexing and splitting). It produces good quality movies in MPEG 1 or MPEG 2 format and you don't need to have 5GB or more free space on your hard disk. DVDx has been designed especially for novice users, and has a simple and intuitive interface. Once the image is created, you only need Nero to write your VCD or SVDC.

anomoly, OpenSource doesn't mean it's magically produces itself for free. The creater is perfectly entitled to seek subscriptions. Grow up.

open source and the first thing I see is a complaint for bandwith and a pitch for a subscription? you're joking right?

Best encoder there is in my opinion. Prefer DVD Decrypter for decoding though.

The poster below me does not realize that the codec chosen and the quality settings are the only factors that determine the size of the ripped files... Wether it was with DVDx or any other ripping program... The last thing we need here on FileForum is beginners like you posting crap they think make them look cool

i wouldnt suggest this product if u r planning to rip / encode an entire dvd unless u have a gigantic hard drive and dont mind waiting a reallllllly long time for it to finish. i personally loved the product but only for the fact that i was only using it to encode small clips. biggest problem with it is that u cant put in markers to only encode a small portion, u HAVE to do the whole dvd. i used dvd shrink to rip the vobs of the sections of the dvds i wanted then just loaded them into dvdx and encoded from there. its a nice program since its free, but if ur looking for something to backup a few to a lot of dvds i would suggest BUYING a nicer program to do it.

Haven't actually had the pleasure of using DVDx yet, as soon as I rn it to rip a dvd my PC does a hard reset!! Baffling. Has any one experienced this and if so where do i look first.

I've been using DVDx 2.0 (and version 1.7 before that)
and it works very well. However, in certain movies (but
not in all movies) i get pops or short dropouts in the
audio, as other people evidently do too (Btw it is NOT
your computer-- i get this problem on a 1.6 GHz P4 on
campus as well as on my poor old PII/333 at home). So
WHY the audio problem? I have detect/force 24Hz turned
on, as well as sync audio+video.

Interestingly, i do not get the audio problem when sync
is unchecked, but then the lip sync is waaay off and the
output is useless. I've also tried Flask for recompressing
DVD's and do not get the audio dropouts. However, i think
DVDx is a better program overall and i'd love to see this
intermittent audio problem fixed.

Cheers,

As for the popping and hissing...i followed seier's advice (see Date: Oct. 22nd post) about using force and detect and choosing 44HZ No Conversion for the conversion to mpg and the audio came out beatifully. I don't agree with his comment about stupid VCD's because I like the ease of watching it on my VCD Player without buying a separate DivX player.

Very nice,definate improvement over ver2.1 now if labdv could fix the frequent "clicking" and "popping" in the audio it would be perfect.

This is listed as adware, but I know of no ads. This does a fair job for most disks. However, a few come out with garbled sound. For those that do work, though, this is much faster than any other process I've used and yields pretty good results.

seier reviewed v2.0 on Oct 22, 2002

First off I know of no adware related to this product! I've never seen any. DVDx is freeware. Second the best thing about DVDx is that you can make DIVX files not stupid VCDs that have gassly image quality. Those of you who are having problems with video quality that's related to your codec and or perhaps you've selected an improper frame rate. Those of you having audio problems Force and Detect 24HZ and don't convert the audio from 48 to 44 HZ just leave it at 48 and things should work better. Also use DIVX pro (there's an adware version if you're tight on cash) you can crop your video files. This is extremely important if you have a widescreen DVD, because the picture doesn't occupy the full 720 x 576 screen.
Good Luck Happy Ripping,

OK, DVDx seems to be a great product. I personally use the 2.0 version (latest to date), and I love it, except that for some reason some of my movies will not let me convert to VCD through it, such as "Ticker", I get just that a ticking noise and skips in the audio when I convert it no matter if I use SmartRipper or not. I can get the audio right doing a Rip, but when I convert it, is when I get the skips and ticks in the audio, no matter if I try to convert it straight from the DVD or from the HDD files I Ripped. If anyone can help me out with this and also help to explain what settings I need to make a regular AVI file so that a WMV conversion can be made out of it, I would greatly appreciate it, you can email me: Greybird67@bellsouth.net, if you have any knowledge on how to do this, I am wanting to put Ticker on my laptop, but I dont have that much space on my HDD on there and carring the CD's would be too complicated, for I am a trucker and CD's dont last long in the truck, (they tend to get scratched really easy, especially when they get bounced around a lot). They also tend to grow legs at times as well, (I've already lost several this way). It would be nice to make my movies into WMV so I can just store them on my laptop when I come home, and when I want to watch them on the road, I can just open my laptop and play them, through my TV. Would also cut down on much needed space currently being occupied by the many CD's that just end up in file 13 or with legs, (frequently before I can even view them). Otherwise this program and its nice interface roxx. Now if they would just take it off the pay to download site!!!
