For *ALL* stuff need to encode DivX (with tutorial, etc)
I suggest you the excellent http://www.doom9.net
I learn to procude maximum high quality divx movie here.
my personnal combo is :
- encode video with FairUse 0.26 (24 - 48 hours)
- grad dvd with SmartRipper 225
- decode sound to wav with vob2audio
- encode final movie with VirtualDub-1_4d (direct video source and 128 kb mp3 compression for wav audio)
