Nov 3, 2017 Version: 2.55 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



I've done hundreds of DVD transcodes using AutoGK and very rarely encountered problems which can only be attributed to a bad source or the ripping tool I used. Nowadays I don't use it as much as we all use better codecs/containers, but when needed AutoGK does a fine job indeed. The compression test and analysis are particularly useful for those difficult dvd sources.


Oct 16, 2017 Version: 2.55 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



I use H264 99%-love it, super format!) of the time and H265 I avoid because it is torture to encode with, despite advancements, but occasionally I need avi. I had a R1 film set, pure interlaced, so J tested my first film out. Fairuse Wizard ivtc recommendation left my 1st choice H264 full of combing and artifacting, but audio output was excellent. Handbrake did a fine job, but way too slow and the resolution went a bit crazy and the denoiuser set at medium caused minor color banding in parts of the video. The audio didn't sound great at all, Faac encoded I think, but serviceable, so what did I do in the end?

I ran the DVDs through AutoGK, gave it a good bitrate of 900kbps, audio set at 128kbps vbr and resolution auto. The result was no combing, excellent video and sound. It impressed me enough to write a review here, proving xvid is far from dead and AutoGK still rocks!

I had to do an xvid from an interlaced DVD which needed ivtc treatment. AutoGK did a fine job using quality 1 pass at 80%. Dated tool but still relevant!


Aug 8, 2017 Version: 2.55 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 9/10



Registered here to thank you for this awesome tool. It literally saved my life when trying to make a standalone movie out of different .VOBs.

These fuckers are annoying as hell to figure out for a newbie. Once again, thank you!
