    ! Notes regarding the high resolution PSP profiles (and Playstation 3):
    - The resulting files must be placed in the \VIDEO folder on the

    Nice. :) I'll be testing that out later. I like the addition of the PS3 profile.

    Yeah, I somehow underestimated the use of that :)

    Indeed. I'm quite curious what the size/quality will be on that. I have a DVD I want to do that to, so, I'll check it out in a bit. Usually I use DivX but since it's not compatible with the PS3, I may switch to AVC. I should be able to play it on my laptop regardless.

    Thanks Peer, just backup a movie to my IPOD and it worked great. :bowdown:

    It's slow but it works great! Thanks.

    FYI - be sure you save the encode to the video file and NOT the mp_root directory or it won't work.

    Great new features !
    Especially the 2 and 3 pass possibility.

    Keep up the good work on this great prog.

    just tried the 3-pass, and it took about three times the time as is to be expected, but made a much smaller file (about 50mb smaller, came to 700mb) and the quality looks better.

    strangely enough, encoding the same dvd rip that i attempted three times with 1140 and got audio out of sync every time; this time was perfectly in sync.

    i'm going to see if i can make a decent looking 45min, 350mb, 640x350 xvid later, like the tv episodes you see on p2p.

    Edit: I made a 44min, 330mb, 640x360 xvid with two-pass and it wasn't quite as good as the p2p-tv, but not very far off, you really had to look for blockiness to notice it. i guess a hdtv source is probably better than a dvd as well. it only took about 35-40mins to encode on my a 3gb/3ghz p4ht (running under vmware/win2003 on fedora 7 linux with 1gb ram alocated to windoze).

    so i guess two-pass really has made a difference, as previously a ~440mb/hour xvid would have been unwatchable.

    Thanks! I just bought it because of this. I only wish you did this sooner, so I hadn't spent money on a crappy competitor's product that never worked right.

    OK, I'll ask the N00B question. I know how to make DivX. I've read on the forum that it's done with an underlying XviD engine.

    How do you make an XviD file?

    You don't make an XviD file. You make an AVI file with DivX/XviD codec.

    can you make a xvid .avi with cdvdm? is it just a matter of profiles?

    Archos 407wifi - CloneDVD mobile 1150

    Clone DVD Mobile 1150 support Archos 407wifi but image size of 800 x 450 is not supported by this device.:(:(

    You can, but I don't see a point. Below is a profile that will generate XviD (CloneDVD mobile or higher required).
    The results in quality with identical filesizes comparing DivX and XviD are just as identical - for my eyes at least.

    And XviD takes considerably longer too.

    Try it yourself, let us know, what you think:

    [* Generic (XviD)]
    mopts=-lameopts br=%abrate% -xvidencopts bitrate=%vbrate%%PASS%

    Why not make CloneDVDMobile a bit more like AutoGK. You put the size you want (700 Mb or 1.4Gb) and it will do the best job with auto resolution and set number of passes? Cheers ;)

    This is pretty much what it does, when you move the quality slider, beneath you'll see the anticipated filesize. So you can set the required size this way.

    Note, that sometimes the file is way smaller than the setting, you selected.
    That is simply because the source video just doesn't contain enough resolution and quality - the transcoding algorithm just can't figure out a way to make a that bad compression :)

    thanks for the xvid profile. ill have to give it a go and compare to divx

    i thought that as mencoder was used, you basically are creating an xvid all the time, just changing the header to divx?

    are you saying a different encoding is used?
  20. Peer

    Peer Redfox Development Team Staff Member

    Yes, it's a different one.
    Xvid is through mencoders built-in xvid library, for Divx mencoder uses the divx codec from the libavcodec library, so there is a difference (pretty much completely different code is involved).
