small application, somewhat slow encodes, limited number of features. Highest quality mp4 video output anywhere. Compared to other encoders, xvid reigns supreme in quality. File sizes 30% smaller than same quality elsewhere. The denoise, scaling, auto-deinterlacing, and the YUV pipeline make for spectacular video encodes. The ability to crop and scale the viewing frame is the best implementation available. Encodes best with a quantizer setting, letting the encoder adjust bitrate to maintain quality. Doesn't effectively leverage multiple CPU's, so I sometimes run 2 copies simultaneously. Doesn't remember preferences. Doesn't preview encode of video or audio. Could use more audio preview, video encode preview, audio leveling controls, brightness/contrast prefilters, chronological cropping, and time marked bitrate changes. But these can also be done elsewhere. This quality of video encode I have not been able to replicate elsewhere.

I really like this app, gives clean output all the time (unlike ffmpegx)... but it's no longer being maintained. I'd really like to have batch processing, since most full-length DVD movies are spread out over 4-5 VOB files. Is there anything as good as this that supports batching?

I had the same problem with the program quitting on me when I selected GO! from the processing screen. Has anyone gotten this program to work who's running OSX 10.4 or does anyone know of another program like this?

Not being a video guru I can't find the correct settingsrequired not to get excessive digital noise on my files. I've tried several combinations and don't care about file size. If anyone's got any tips... mrtotes@yahoo.com. cheers

Just for the fun of it, i tested it out on a complete yet incomplete avi as the input file - something quicktime refused to open. After it finished converting the avi to mp4, it worked perfectly in quicktime as if there was never a problem. Also the file size was reduced even more while retaining the same level of quality.

When I'm converting multible VOB files from the same movie, the first one does fine but each one after that has the first two frames garbled in green large pixels. The audio is there, it's just that its volume is very low. It would be nice to have an option where it could combine VOB files.

Version 0.8.7 seems to mysteriously quit on itself midway through converting larger files. It doesn't crash - it just mysteriously disapears leaving an incomplete and therefore useless file. The problem began occuring after I updated from OS 10.2.8 to 10.3.4. Incidently, I cannot download version 0.8.8 since the download site claims to not be able to read the file. Anyone else?

really good app, it would be nice if it could use other processors on a network (in a similar way to cinema4d's network renderer) OpenShiiva is quick but it would be alot quicker if the 10 imacs I have at work could part process a movie for me! is it possible?

Much better as DivXRay! You can even define the place of the subtitles, handy if you want to crop the video :-). Converting to something like DivX with a quicktime plugin is also possible. The manual is very good, and explains everything a newbie wants to know while still keeping things simple. The only features I'm missing are placing multiple files to convert in a queue, and to select a different audio codec, but it has much other features that other programs have not :-) If you have scaling problems with a quicktime plugin (the video gets stretched), just enable "Scale" at the Crop & Scale tab and enter the correct values to fix this.

It is very good, the best app to convert VOB to DivX. And it is free. Thanks

I think that this is by far the best VOB -> Divx program out there. It's free (open-source) it's quick and stable. Love it. But it might be nice if support for moore codecs was added.

It works excellent, tested with 3 different DVD titles and the cropping feature is excellent...only problem is audio syncing that could be improved, also it would be nice with gamma and color correction, but anyway, its a great product!

Works well, is free, having many scaling modes is cool. Divx support is also nice.

I downloaded it a second time and it worked alright. It's a beautiful program...decoded a full VOB file in less than 5 minutes on my 500Mhz G4 PowerBook.
