Thread: Ripping DVD with DivX & Lame 3.93

  1. #1

    Question Ripping DVD with DivX & Lame 3.93

    Is it possible to Rip DVD or convert other Media to DivX using Lame 3.93 and not the standard windows PCM Encoder ?

    My videos have poor Quality and the filesize is too big

    thx ARcane ?

    install the lame acm filter that came with lame 3.92, then you can update the lame_enc whenever you like and the filter will use it (chuck it in your system directory)
    then using virtualdub you can convert the audio to mp3.
    you'll have a hard time playing it on a slow machine!

    The only drama I've comeacross is that the lame acm thing makes cooleditpro2 crash as soon as it opens.

    If you do use LAME and set it to VBR, I would suggest that you process audio and video as two separate tasks in Virtual Dub. Over a long duration I have seen audio/video sync get lost when processing both audio and video together.

    Also with DivX, I've had better success with version 5.0.0 than I have with version 5.0.2.

    If filesize is an issue, I've found that the frauhoffer IIS mpeg layer 3 codec produces a slightly smaller file than Lame. (when set to CBR).

    If you're interested, I did some tests comparing mpeg1, mpeg2, divx 5.0.0 and divx 5.0.2 a little while ago. You can see the results on the below link.

    In respect to speed, here's a quick test I did on a 900mhz celeron with 128mb of 66mhz sdram, when playing back different video formats. All have mp3 audio.
