Hi,
I have been trying to make some divx movies, and have tried to follow two tutorials off the 'net, but each time I do the move get to 2 minutes and then stops encoding. I even tried Divx's Dr. Divx and the same thing happened.
Can anyone help me with this?
Thanks.

How are you trying to encode these DivX files?

VirtualDub?

What version of DivX are you using?

Hi, can you give links to the guides you are using please?

You might be best to revert back to Vdub 1.4.13 (build 14328/release). That version definitely works.

The newer versions have major bugs in them which jamm up the encoding, and usually stop at 99% on the last pass :P

Also processor, OS, ram and how much Virtual Memory you have allocated. 1gig + is best for divx encoding.

Try allocating over a gig in virtual memory for encoding large divX movies, especially on Win2k. Do that if the older version of VirtualDub doesn't work for you.

You could always try GordianKnot, theres guides for that at doom9. Apparently produces a better quality rip than the Vdub/dvd2avi guides because you're frameserving with AviSynth and it keeps the dvd in its native colour format.

wooo, thanks for the replys.
I had bee using a tutorial from http://www.dvdripguides.com/ but I cant remember where the other one was.
As for system.....
xp 2200, gig ddr ram (get your facts straight ham :))
I did get the newest version of virtualdub, I didnt know it was worse that the older ones.
I changed the virtual memory size and I'm just downloading the GordianKnot Codec pack and GordianKnot Rippack, so I'll let you know how it goes.........
Thanks

not quite. gordian knot used to be a bitrate calulator but has now become a front end app for converting dvd to divx and strangly enough it uses most of the programs on the site you posted.

Notice the word most in bold:D, i used to bakup my dvd's but now i just use those programs to bakup my DV camera's video to avi to store on comp then in mpeg format for vcd.

gordian knot makes the scripting a whole lot easier exspecially if you use YV12
