Publisher's Description

Dr. DivX is the first and only official DivX Encoding application. Just as DivX and DivX Pro have enabled anyone, anywhere to watch and distribute great looking digital video, this now makes the act of creating DivX video as easy as the act of watching it. It lets you create an awesome DivX video from almost any source right on your computer in just three easy steps.

Is there any way to use this interface with the Xvid codec, if for no other reason than comparison testing?

That said, it's the easiest way for me to get stuff into Divx, and I'm glad it's available, warts and all, and that it's free. May not be perfect, but at least it's out there.

To Qlib :
For a few beta Dr. DivX is known to crash easily and it's a shame.
But if you google a bit, you will find out a known workaround.
Basically, the method is to convert your vob files to mpeg (using for example Nero software).
I knwo it is an extra step but it succed each time.
Hope it helps.

i tried the previous beta a while ago.. would just crash whenever i loaded any video into it.. this one crashes on startup and i did a clean install of windows 2 days ago..!! ok so its windows after all but geesh!

well.. it may be good but it remains in the s***e category until it will actually run!

.. I honestly prefer AVC.. esp with that dumb 4gb limit for divx on ps3 (not that AVC doesnt have it too im sure it does but the quality u can smash into 4gb is just better).. also PS3 may be officcially supported DivX but it doesnt have the "DivX Ultra" support for menus and such but maybe it will come someday.... unfortunately theres not a lot of good encoders for that (AVC that is).. at least not one that any non-sceners who cant do AVISynth scripts can use.... Nero Recode is decent but it crashes WAY too much esp if you try using 5.1 sound or multiple audiostreams and such.. just discovered AutoMKV.. someone told me it would do MP4 -AVC as well so guess ill give that a shot..

very slow and very disappointing development of this project

seems like years ago that the original Dr DivX project ended and the current Dr DivX 2 began

how difficult is it to ask a few questions and then pass those details to the codec ???

This little application is not really a beta. It is more a pre-alpha version with a lot of bugs. The biggest problem is the terrible buggy UI and I think the developers don't use this program to create their own movies.

DivX has by far a better image quality than XivD, so don't hassle with the fuss from the user with the name "Registered". XviD may be free but it is simply inferior to DivX. I better do not mention the lack of 64Bit OS support from the so called XviD community.

still many problems, and quite unreliable, and still has many stability problems,

it also has to be said that the developers really should get there fingure out, the developments stage on this software is going so slow, for what ever reason i don't know, but updates should be coming out far quicker then they are,

the DivX community are not offering much these days, DivX decided to go private with there software, but there speed of development is awful,

Xvid is finished and finalized, open source has many programs out there that support it, and it's all free, not to mention that DivX struggles to come close to Xvid quality (giving the speed Xvid works at)

2 points for the fact that this update was so needed, and they do keep trying i give them that.

but people, go with Xvid, it's better in nearly everything, and it's FREE!!!!

This release of the program is fine except of one thing - it freezes some other programs when Dr. Divx runs in background. Good examples are KeePass or Wuala which cannot run together with Dr. Divx 2.01 beta 5.

Works great. Very simple to use and very hard to screw up. Excellent for n00bs. :)

Still wish they had something this simple for xVid

Still a hassle to use (specially audio), not even close to the easiness and output quality of AutoGK

I have found it simple to use and it has always given me great results with the minimum of fuss.

yokozuna: You need the very latest DivX codec so unless you installed that in the past day you don't have the latest codec. I am guessing you have an older version of the DivX codec installed.

Wow. This thing just flat out works.

I installed it and tried to run it, but it said "Codec not found" so I downloaded the latest CODEC Only right here from BetaNews

http://fileforum.betanew...for_Windows/995527733/1

It was like 3 links above it on the list of new releases. Installed that codec and it worked without a hitch.

VERY similar file size to Xvid too. I'm very impressed. Ok, it is slow, but it works.

I do kinda wish they would have included the latest up to date codec in the install bundle for Dr. Divx, but since the error message flat-out tells you what the problem is, it is easy enough to figure out what to do.

Nice work. Until something like this comes out for Xvid, I guess I will be using Dr. Divx as one of my apps.

I have looked at Fair Use wizard, and it's not bad, but not nearly as easy as Dr. Divx.

"DivX codec installation was not detected. Please install the latest DivX Codec".

The problem is that the codec is already installed.

I must be lucky - for me I have been using this application for sometime now and never found a problem with stability. I love its simplicity and ease of use.
I love its batch encoding feature - just load it up and overnight it works away through the files.
It woulkd be useful if it could use the Xvid codec.
