Hi everybody !
How many times have you dowloaded a file and had the bad surprise to find a video with a very bad quality ???
Personnally, I can't remember how many times it happened !!!!
Never wanted to know how other users could share all those new movies ?
Never wanted to make your own ones and make them in a good quality so that anybody dowloading them is happy in front of the chef d'oeuvre ?
(It also works for users making shit)
Well, time has come :
Here are a few tips on how to make good video files from a DVD.
It can be films, TV-shows, manga or whatever as long as it's on a DVD.
You have to proceed by steps:
1. Select the DVD you want to make available for others ( or 4 u )
2. Rip it
3. Encode it ( with the DivX or Xvid codec)
4. Share it
And now you're going to say : what is that suppose to mean ?
If you are interested by the subject, go to Doom9.net - The definitive DVD backup resource
Here you will find very good guides already written on how to make high quality video files from DVD.
Personnally, I recommand you to use Gordian Knot for making them. It's a pack (well 2 packs) where you will find everything you need to do it.
But please, FIRST read carefully the guide related to Gknot. The quality of your files depends on it.
The bigger your final file will be, the better quality you'll have BUT a normal movie shoudn't take more than 700 MB = 1 CD-R ( in order to burn it) and 1400 MB = 2 CD-R for a long movie like " The Lord of the Ring".
Last advice: you have better results with the DivX codec for films, sitcoms and better results with Xvid for anime, manga.
Hope I helped you a bit. If you have questions, I'll be happy to answer you !
Even users with few computer knowledge can do it. So try it and make it possible to always find on Klite good quality files !!!
