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!
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?
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!
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
This Programme along with OSEx is all one needs to rip good quality DivX from your favourite DVD`s Play them in VLC and you are sorted. Find it takes about 5 hrs to rip a 3 hour movie at v good quality. The only problem is with the sound conversion from 5.1 to 2 channel there are a few cracks along the way but otherwise its top notch!
Works great if you combine it with FFmpegX. You can combine the Video output script from FFmpegX and the Audio from Mencoder and run it in the terminal to achieve results. Otherwise you don't have tghe same control over things like aspect ratio and Frame rate.
