  • AVI to DivX

    This is the easiest of all ways to convert to DivX because this AVI is the prefered windows format. So lets keep this simple huh =)

    Before I start here are the things you will need:

    DivX ;-) Mpeg-4 Codec 3.1alpha (or greater)

    Fhg Radium MP3 codec
    VirtualDub 1.4c (or greater)
    Advanced Bitrate Calculator 1.8





    Open the AVI file you wish to convert in VirtualDub.

    And then go to: 'Video > Compression...'

    Up pops the following box below. Choose Mpeg-4 Low-Motion and hit the configure button (highlighted in red).

    Then up pops the codec options. Use one of the bitrate calculators that can be downloaded from Digital Digest to make sure the movie will fit into the size you need. 650kbps will usually fit ANY movie on a single CD, but you can usually get away with between 900 and 1000kbps for a 352 x 240 VCD movie for better quality see my quality guide if you are unsure about correct bitrate settings.


    Audio Compression

    Now select the audio settings by going to: Audio > Full processing mode (so the black dot appears by it).

    Then Audio > Compression.

    Up pops this box below. Choose Mpeg Layer 3 or DivX ;-) Audio 64kbps, 441 kHz, stereo. And press OK.

    That's it! Save AVI...

    Here we go! The picture on the left represents the original AVI movie and the one on the right represents the DivX version. For even faster encoding you can set the priority settings to 'Highest' and turn off the 'Show input' and 'Show output' video by unchecking the boxes. These can be turned on at any time to see your progress.
