DVDx 4.0 is an audio/video encoder as well as a powerful DVD copier. You can read DVDs and quiet any audio or video files and encode them to quiet any popular video formats: VCD/CVD/SVCD/DVD, Xvid/Divx, MPEG-4, H.264, AVC, QuickTime, Flash Video, Ogg, WebM, AC.3, WAV, MP3, MP4/AAC, Lossless Audio, PCM, Vorbis etc.

DVDx 4.0 is very easy to use: open a DVD or file in the player, play it with audio/subtitle of your choice ; encode a short preview and play it to ensure it's what you expect, and then start the whole encoding job which can take about one hour but you're quiet sure to get a very good result!

DVDx 4.0 is based on the most popular and powerful encoders: x264, MEncoder and FFmpeg. It's open-source code iswritten for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X platforms.

DVDx 4.0 makes all good choices for you: popular video and audio codecs and appropiate settings (for fair quality, high quality or smaller size files) but you can tune the encoder with your own preferred settings.

Release 4.0.0.0 is the very first public release, don't spend too much time if you don't succeed in running it, I'll publish a new release very soon.

Supported output format
--------------------------
* 3G2, 3GP: H.263, MPEG-4 and H.264 (MPEG-4/AVC) video for mobile phones

The 4.0 Open Edition does the DVD decryption.

@VideoHelp
You can host the Smart Edition for downloads too.





@JayBo
I believe "quiet" is supposed to be "quite" as in the phrase "quite a few". The words "quiet any" could have been replaced with the word "many" but the author's intent may have been to convey "almost any audio and video files".

I haven't used the windows tool since they split off the DVD decryption function to a members only version. I'm not sure if they have added it back to v4.0 so my ratings are based on much older releases of the program.

I can't figure out what this app does from the developer's description. What do they think the word "quiet" means?

"DVDx 4.0 is an audio/video encoder as well as a powerful DVD copier. You can read DVDs and quiet any audio or video files and encode them to quiet any popular video formats: VCD/CVD/SVCD/DVD, Xvid/Divx,....."

Just a suggestion: When you're trying to make money in a non-native language, it's ridiculous to skip COPY EDITING. I'm American, but I made 23 times the national per capita income in Turkey for 3 years running as a side-job to my professorship partly because I learned and respected their language as much as my own.

NOTE: I gave this app all 10s because I have to select something, not because I've ever used it. I'm still not sure what it does.

To reply to previous comment about encoding issue:

- Encoding NTSC is always a nightmare to sync audio and video, with DVDx make the good frame rate selection, usually 23.976 with Detect 24Hz.

We're working hard to release DVDx 4 as soon as possible to fix this (it will use external encoder at first (Mencoder, Qenc) to use the best code we can).

When converting a VOB to DivX, my Audio/Video started off synced, but by the end of a 20 minute clip, there was almost a 2 second shift. Not pleased at all. Nothing else matters if the end result isn't acceptable. They should have spend less time on decoration, and more on making it work.

Now DVDx encoder has a great companion: DVDx InfoTool, which provides DVD structure (VTS, PGC, menus etc.) and video/audio/subtitle format from a DVD-Video (protected or not). The very first pre-release is DVDx InfoTool 0.9.1 and is a providing informations like ifo _dump and title_info from libdvdread.

We're already preparing the 1.0.0 release which will display a 3rd view ("standard") with data formatted for a usage in a DVD ripper like DVDx encoder.

DVDx InfoTool runs on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X (Intel binaries provided).

DVDx InfoTool is available (including all compiled binaries) from SourceForge as part of DVDx project:
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=72208&p ... _id=256669

DVDx InfoTool homepage: http://www.labdv.com/dvdx/infotool.php

PS- I expect Baldwin may add DVDx IntoTool in Videohelp tools.

Further to my problems a few days ago. I eventually found out what the problem was. DVDx is fine it was the Divx codec that was at fault. The error messages were basically red herrings!

I used an Xvid codec and everything works fine.

Be careful of any new PC you get with all that advertising, trial period junk on it. Some of it contains time limited Divx codecs which have a "wonderful way" of looking as if they are OK.

If you don't find answers to DVDx issue in VideoHelp forums (I miss some), you can post the issue on official support forum (eventually just a link to the thread in VideoHelp forum so I'm notified):

That's not normal to fail to run DVDx on any XP machine which can play DVDs...

Tried for the first time for encoding a DVD to XviD. It works, albeit a bit slow compared to VDubMPEG. Got a frame rate of 16 against 26 in VDubMPEG. Used it since VDub would not take all the VOBs in a title.

What a nightmare. I did manage to get V2.4 working on my sons computer but only after XP was installed from scratch on a re-formatted harddrive. This does not work on my other sons XP "out of the box" nor my laptop "out of the box".

Versions 2.5 onwards do not work on anything. The picture is a garbled mess (at best) that's assuming the Iseqcompressframe error does not get you first!.

I'm sorry, I know its freeware but I'm using XP Pc's "out of the box".......so something should work.

There is no google toolbar in this program and it's working perfect and it's freeware.
So dont blame dvdx for your problems.

Okay; I downloaded this and agreed to the terms. Then it installed google toolbar. yuk. Why does a free tool have to install google toobar? Well that's not all it did, and avi is not one of the available free output options. Obtained the blue screen of death on my first VOB conversion try. So its gone, and my system is not back to normal yet. Don't use this one. It'l screw up your system.

I have some pal DVD mpeg1 videos that I wanted convert to NTSC vcd. I tried many programs including TMPGEnc Plus 2.5 and Mpeg encorder, nothing worked i only got 2-3 minute video from 6 hours DVD i even tried to convert it to pal vcd that didt't work either then i tried this and it worked perfectly. Highly recommended. Even if you use other program for conversion you should have this just in case

I was having trouble using DVDdecrpyter when I was trying to rip a DVD and kept getting the error message I/O error. So I thought something was wrong with my DVD, but then I tried DVDx and it converted my DVDs to VCD just fine and no error messages. It is pretty easy to use if you follow the guides for the program. I think this is a really great tool and the best thing is that it is free.

At first try, DVDx seems a bit of a mess (no offense to the hard-working developers - I realize that it's free). The user interface layout is far from obvious. Everything I tried produced either a cryptic error message or a warning about some limitation. When I finally got it to produce an mpeg file, and I could see that the interlace was messed up. I'm sure I could get past all this with patient research and experimentation, but I guess I've been spoiled - DVDx 2.3 doesn't seem up to the polished standard that I've come to expect of the best free software. I compared it to Fair Use 0.40 (an older version of that software), which seemed to perform the same operation easily on the first try - although somewhat slower.

I have only one problem with DVDx, it uses the obscure nLame.dll. I eventually found a version of it built from LAME 3.96 (latest stable), but it didn't work with DVDx. I can't see why they'd want to use a hardly used version of the shared LAME library, and make life harder for people who like to keep up to date with software versions (you wouldn't stick with using DivX 5.0.1, would you). It just seems like a really silly thing to do.

First of all it is free!
Second there are a lot of guides to have a look at.
This program is the best VCD/SVCD creator out there. Maybe it does not do such a good job with DivX and stuff, but in VCD it just rocks!

I have tried to use several tools to back-up my dvds. I am a newbie and I have been having trouble making a back-up thus far using several of the tools talked about here on this site. When I found DVDx, I read the guides and was up and running in no time. I got great divx, svcd and vcd copies of my dvds. This program does what it says it can and the price can't be beat. It takes some time to convert the dvd but thus far I have not been able to sucessfully back to dvd-r so I can live with for now. I would recommend DVDx to all.

I love this program and it's FREE. I have made about 10 back-ups of DVD's. This will keep me busy until I finally move up to a DVD burner. Takes about 4 hours for a 2hr movie. Then I burn using NERO 6. If your a noob like me and want a simple program where all you have to do is click to copy and then burn, DVDx 2.2 is it.

Hi
This is a GREAT piece of software.

Over the last couple of weeks I have evaluated many different software titles for DVD to (S)VCD conversion and in my humble opinion DVDx is the best package avaiable for an easy to use program with very acceptable results. If you are a newbie like me you should give DVDx a try..... it's FREE to boot!!
