    Ok, Im back, and with more questions .
    The thing is that Im 'capping' the WorldCup Highlights in mpeg2, but this video format is quite big (300mb for 5minutes of video),
    so I started converting to Divx, but to get a decent high quality file playable in my Home Theater, the encoded video
    still is too big (I get a 150mg Divx from a 300mb mpeg).
    So for the first time, I decided to try Xvid, and Damn I was impressed!,
    I get almost perfect image for only 80mb (5 mins), but then I thought about it and I believe the file is still too big,
    what I mean is that for example: all the Xvid TV episodes I dld are '350mb x 42mins' with exelent image, wich means that I should
    be able to get a '40mb x 5mins' file. So I would like to know how to do it.

    I did a search on the web, like '350mb tv rip guide' and stuff like that,
    but so far nothing helpful.

    *Im just using 'VirtualDub-MPEG2 1.6.15'.
    Thanks in advance guys.

    Ok, the size problem as been resolved, I used 'AutoGK' to get the avi the size I wanted and with very good quality.
    But when I play the xvid on my Home Theater, hte video kind of jumps, like if it
    wanted to skip like some xvid I've downloaded before.

    Is it the MP3 audio?,
    sould I try AC3?
    Damn Im geting tired of tweaking it (the xvid settings).

    These are my settings.

    Can't understand why you would have problems with DivX, it's simply a case of setting the desired bit rates, and of course using 2-pass encoding. You will always get jerky playback if you use single pass.

    I use Dr Divx (which is really just a front end) and set the parameters accordingly. I usually aim for 345MB output size (for 40-45min view time), simply because 13 episodes at that size will fit onto a DVD, compared to 12 at 350MB.

    Oh, and you can save your settings so you don't need to keep tweaking them
    .
    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    This time Im not using Divx, it doesn't give me the desired quality and compression.
    Im using Xvid encoding.
