Don't mislead people. What you're saying is not true. AutoGK does convert DVD to AVI, just select source IFO file instead of VOB.

It is said that this tool can convert a DVD to divx.

Truth is - it can only convert 1 VOB File to AVI

WTF? It is not a DVD -> DIVX tool.
It is a simple VOB to AVI tool

AutoGK is very useful. You can choose the output size, and it worked well converting a .mpeg file into an .avi file. You can change video output settings, but I left it as 'auto'. The output was good for its size, and the 'job' feature was very useful.

When i use this program to convert a dvd to Xvid with a single AC3 audio track it works okay, but misses the target size by quite a bit and takes an hour when Fair Use Wizard takes much less time and gives you the file size you set.

When i try to convert a dvd to xvid with 2 audio tracks including 1 DTS audio track, it takes all of 3 minutes and produces nothing.

FU also will not do a conversion with a DTS audio track, but it does the conversion much faster with just as good of results as far as video quality goes.

But for a basic free converter to convert dvd to xvid with basic ac3 audio it is good.

Make this software so it will convert to Xvid with a DTS audio track it would be a straight 10 across the board.

A superb piece of software in every respects. A BIG pity its development is discontinued. Best transcoding/encoding tool I have ever used. I always use the Xvid 1.2.1 with it, as I find the compression quality and resultant file is always much higher than DivX 5.2.1 or Dix 6.x. Your choice really!

For files which can not be used as source eg H264 etc use newer and excellent AviREComp. Link for portable AutoGK 2.55 below.

this is a great application I've used it for years, but it has no command line options, so I wrote a simple application for importing all the dvds in a directory into autogk, saves a ton of time!

Notable features: Batch processing makes this a workhorse. Keeps audio in synch. that other programs can't. Accepts VOB files. Encode to target size (actually works well) or quality.

A limited number of codecs and features (even if you discover the ctrl+F9 set), but it works very well in what it does give you. If all you need is Divx or Xvid MP4 video with MP3 or passthrough audio in AVI then this is the encoder for you.

OK, had to "save Christmas" and get a .vob to a useable file for Creative Zen Vision M. Vision M software bombed, as did a few I trialed (payware). AutoGK came thru and produced a fine quality Xvid file my son's Zen was happy with. Took a while, but it does a lot!

Thanks to the creator of this nice, simple and useful tool.

I have been using this tool ever since Gordian Knot ceased updating, and I've come to love it's simplicity. I was quite use to Gordian Knot's many steps that had to be performed to convert a single video, but when I moved over to this tool, the change was unbelievable.

There are only three steps that have to be performed, open video, set size, and save video. I've yet to see any other tool that offers this simplicity. Most others require certain settings, whereas AutoGK calculates\does most things for you (e.g. autocrop, extracting and wrapping sutitles). And while other tools do offer great flexibility, I find that they take a good 5-10 minutes to set up a single conversion. Whereas I can set the conversion in AutoGK in about 10-30 seconds.

I admit that I do miss the ability to create .ogm files with chapters or text subtitles included in the file, and would love to see a tool that combines that feature with AutoGK simplicity, but nothing exists yet.

Overall a great tool and would highly recommend that you try out this tool at least once

Don’t get me wrong, this is a great tool, and while I always scan my ever growing video tool list to see which one will do the job I need to do, I’ll end up coming back to AGK very often.
But please, get the basics right. And I read here and there that “AutoGK is meant to be a one-click tool.”, oh, really?
Why do I have to press CTRL+Funct. key to get my options, how much does it hurt to implement a button on the GUI? Now, which one of the [Advanced Options >> Output audio type] or the [Advanced Audio Options] should I trust as they are showing different values?
Why do I have to plug 192 kbps and check mono in order to get 96 kbps mono? May I just plug what I want instead of AGK thinking for me I really meant 96 while I plugged 192 trying to process mono?
Why do I have to go to [Advanced Options] to use Subtitle tracks check boxes properly? Shouldn’t burnt in option be a dropdown with a default choice of “none”, and external option be check boxes that do not behave like radio buttons?
Why am I asked to confirm which PGC contained in the vobset needs to be selected when AutoGK cannot work properly on a vobset that still has multiple angles/program chains in it? What about a warning that unless the vobset is appropriately prepared, all PGCs will be included into one final file?
I know the answer to these questions, techies are not business. If they were, the software would be friendlier to use but not free anymore. Yes I read all the threads and guides but I am tired to google. I don’t like to be told “it’s free, so be happy”, but I like to think that free does not mean trade-off with quality.

AutoGk works great for me. Used it hundreds of times over the years with very few glitches. To the previous poster, mar39241: to convert a DVD, you don't select a chapter, you select an .ifo file. You can find an HTML help file in the "Help" folder under your AutoGK folder. If it didn't come with your download, you can read it at: http://www.autogk.me.uk/modules.php?name=TutorialEN

Highly recommended.

I gave up after trying to select the appropriate DVD chapter.

It may be freeware but get the basics right. Either the software provides choices or the help informs you to search yourself. I have no patience if neither is forthcoming.

Please disregard the comments of user eliteinfo - they are uninformed. If he/she had bothered to RTFM in the way of any of the many guides here or at Doom9 the outcome would have been far more successful. This is wonderful and easy-to-use free software with great output results.

Very impressive, especially how it auto crops etc for you (that's a PLUS on my other tool, SimpleDivX) but it strikes me that with a tool this good there could be more:
1) Rather than at end of Batch, Shutdown why not Standby?
2) Pause (job or batch) encoding would be useful
3) Mencoder support? Its definitely SLOWER than SimpleDivX but it uses different back-end tools.

All in I am very impressed with this. Tried earlier version which kept crashing for me but 2.40 is great

It works better than the Dr. DIVX solution alternative. I tried both Dr.-DIVX and AUTOGK on exactly the same file, with exactly the same size result. AutoGK created a file that worked perfectly, with no video problems, no skipping, no audio issues. Dr. Divx created a file with problems playing well.

I've used it a couple of times to backup my DVDs to XVID.
It's very easy to use and makes perfect backups for me.
I've used Mediatek chip compatibility for my standalone DVD/DivX player and everything works fine.

I'm sorry to give a comment that is obviously so different from the majority of people here who left a great feedback about this soft. However my experience with AutoGK (and with GK before) has been extremely negative in any release i've tried from time to time (due to the fact of the good fb!). I find this program: buggy (it crashes and/or returns errors too often), slow (even with a dual core duo running at 3Ghz+), poor quality output at any bitrate. I have to say that i've tried this proggie with different machines but it has never satisfied me so i'll stay away from it from now on.
