Dr. DivX refused to run on my system because I didn't have the latest DivX codec. I checked and I have version 7 which I just downloaded and installed. I think Dr. DivX is bugged to not work with DivX 7 and assumed I didn't have the latest version. Rated down for this

DivX is dead. It simply can not compete with h264.

Good in theory, but it crashes way too much and fails on a lot of different formats (is this using mplayer? Seem to have some of its conversion problems)

Probably best to pass on Dr. DivX. After an interminable period in beta, Dr. DivX appears to no longer be in development. Neither is there any active support community.

DivX is moving towards an AVC H.264 MPEG-4 profile in a Matroska container which is not supported by Dr. DivX. That AVC H.264 DivX encoder is now at alpha release.

The choice between an MPEG-4 ASP codec ten years old with a beta encoder, or an alpha encoder for a beta codec shouldn't prove difficult.

I tried to convert a flash (.FLV) video using this tool. The video was using nellymoser audio and I have had difficulty converting it or extracting it in the past with other tools (flvExtract) but at least flvExtract told me it did not support nellymoser.

With Dr. Divx the audio conversion apparently crashed without any warning message and I had to click on continue to allow encoding to resume. I ended up with a video without any audio. It would be nice if the tool supported nellymoser audio.

works great on .flv to divx, flawless conversion

however, a large size VOB such as a 73MB turns into an almost empty data file of size 66KB or so each time.. yes, I mean 66Kilo-bytes. why is this? what can be done to make it legit with the video?

Dr.Divx 1.06 is much better. Don't use 2.0. Dr.divx106 is working with virtualdub filters.

Now it can process avisynth files. IMO the best tool for converting youtube flvs to divx if you use the noise filter at extreme setting.

I like the idea of the program. Unfortunately, even after uninstalling previous versions, I have only been able to get it working exactly once. It crashes several minutes into every encode. If not for this, I would have rated it much higher. Perhaps as high as a 9 with a little interface tweaking. If this can be resolved, I will reconsider my current rating altogether.

The interface is a little clumsy, though not unacceptable. I would like to be able to customize some of the settings when I need Dr Divx to create a file of a certain size. I wanted it to convert an mpeg video into an AVI that would fit onto a CD, but it wouldn't let me adjust the settings to handle motion very well. So every time the video camera panned, there was a stutter I found pretty distracting. A little work here would be a great improvement as well.

Program has potential. Will try to keep an eye out for improvements on these issues. If you want it for transcoding FLV video, but have the same problem with crashing, you might try WinFF in the meantime.

Works much better than previous versions. Combined with codec 6.2 and it gets the job done quickly and with good quality.

T the previous poster about rc1 crashing

You must uninstall the previous build (beta 10 or earlier) of Dr. DivX. Do a "Dr.DivX Reset" after installing. If you have old job files, you need to lose them. The new build will crash if you try to use the old job files with it.

I used b10 and it converted vob to divx mp3 with audio always 160 no matter what I selected for bitrate. I could not keep the ac3 even when I selected it. I removed b10 and installed rc1 but it crashed on open consistently. I never got to try it. I uninstallled and reinstalled b10 and now when I select ac3 it keeps it. Go figure??? I had not tried batch encoding before but after the reinstalls and the final install of b10 I tried 4 vob to divx tasks with ac3 audio. As soon as it finishes the first file in the batch job it crashed although the processed file is ok. When I restart the program the jobs are still in the queue so then I start the next file and it too on completion crashes the prog although the output is fine. I will see if I have accidently activated some post processing plugin option which doesn't work or it can't find.

I like where this is heading and would love it if we could have simple menus. I have a lot of video related software on my system so I realise the crashes in RC1 are likely due to some conflict on my system but I am posting this in case someone else has the same problem with version RC1 and it turns out to be a program flaw.

Great tool keep it up guys!!

Just to clear up what the previous commentator said about jail, pirate, not legal, no source code and good software... Well he nearly made a complete fool of himself but saved the day with the "Good software" comment.

This software is open source:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/drdivx

It source code is available:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/drdivx

As is the drffmpeg.dll:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/drdivx

A lot of hard work goes into software of this complexity....

GET YOUR FACTS RIGHT BEFORE YOU POST SLANDER

Claims to be open source, but it is not. Dr. Divx is a dirived product of drffmpeg.dll. But drffmpeg.dll is not open source. In fact it is not even legal to use, since no source code is made available it can not be used under the GPL license. Hense Dr. Divx is pirated software.

Good software, but not worth going to jail over...

Quite a leap forward. No memory leaks and crashes at random points.
However, to my use, doesn't make any improvements over AutoGK or Avi.Net

The reported problems with 2.0.0 Beta IS with the necessary separate DLL's installed according to FAQ. The app starts fine, and starts working, but pretty soon dies.

To the previous posters: You've got to read the FAQ before using Dr. DivX --- there are two other files you have to download separately to get the program to work. After you do this, it works fine. Go to the DivX.com forums and read further if you do not understand this!

100% non functional.
Tried 4 different VOB's (riped DVD as single vob with DVDDecrypter) with AC3 audio.
4 times out of four, the app crashes after a few minutes, having eaten up all system resources, leaving the computer almost catatonic.
Not many settings available yet.
Conclusion: Leave this alone. Hopefully later versions will at least work to [b]some[/b] degree.
After all hype, a real dissapointment.

Just a quick note to clarify here

Dr. DivX has never nor will ever install Adware. The DivX codec (older versions) used to have a free version that came with adware. That is also no longer the case. the latest 5.2 version is free, no adware.

Please send me feedback on Dr. DivX, what you love, hate, use, don't use etc.

send feedback over the Dr. DivX forum at DivX.com

thanks

I have been using this product since it was in Beta, and it works well for me.

I have encoded movies ripped from one of my DVD's - it handled the vob file directly, and gave me a very, very good movie to watch.

I use it to shrink TV shows captured but not yet watched. Capture is with ATI MMC, to mpeg2 format. Dr DivX lets me batch several files and then encodes them overnight. You can control the parameters and destination directory for each file seperately.

All in all, a very useful tool, well worth the month.

Having said that - I strongly suggest downloading the demo version, to ensure that it does work on your system. It works fine on three of my PCs, but YMMV!
