MencoderOSX is an open source tool for ripping DVD video and saving it in DivX format.
This stopped working after the last system update. I keep getting 'no audio codec' found, even after selecting a codec.
Doesn't work. All I get is 'bus error'.
I think that it is really easy to use. I just pushed dvd. then I hit go & ripped a fairly nice divx file for me. although it help to use the little divx repair apps. sometimes the rip is messed up. still a great freeware app!
Hard to use. I just need to convert .wmv to .avi, and I keep getting an error that says '0' cant be a boolean. Looks like a program, not user, glitch here.
having trouble locating the input device dvd
i did the whole mount thing in terminal but i'm not sure what to actually place in the input line for the dvd location
could use a bit of help here
/dev/disk1 is the location of my drive and is what was used on the older mEncoders...how do i use it on the new one?
Preview movie looks great but there seems to be a bug. When I select Start Conversion it tells me I haven't selected an audio encoder, when I have!
Have tried a variety of fixes.
Great app. You just gotta learn how to use it and done! The only thing is that there should be an option to select the final size of the movie before starting the conversion. Good interface and very nice speed!
HAve to make an additional review...
Along with DVD Backup Mencoder worked fine! Took me a while but I got it.
Good program, and much faster than anything out their!
Get nothing but:
1 duplicate frame(s)!

not a great program. Worked once but I'm giving up...
Worked very well on my 1st attempt but didn't work on my later attempts.
It just may not have worked on the one movie (Lord Of The Rings) that I was trying as my 2nd try.
This seems to be a great app though.
Will keep trying
