Question Divx encoding problem - 1-2 second skip

Having decrypted a chapter from a vob file off a DVD using DVD Decrpyter I tried to encode the vob into divx.. Everything seemed fine apart from the fact that there is a short 1-2 second skip near the begining as if there was frame loss (the rest of the avi is fine). I have tried Divx 4.12 and 5.02 and both give the same results.

Ive tried using FlaskMPEG 0.563 and Xmpeg 4.5

Again it happens on both. Is it perhaps a dvd rip problem? Or is it an encoding problem?

If it is the latter can anyone recomend something which would give me better performance? I use virtual dub quite a bit but I cant open vob files in it i dont think.

Oh and ive tried ripping an entire vob file rather than just a chapter and again the same thing happens.

Any help appreciated and if this is a common question forgive me

If you look at DivX-Digest ( VirtualDub Download page you can find a version that can open the Vob files directly, If you have a good filter for MPEG2 (e.g. PowerDVD or WinDVD or the Vob Filters from DivX-Digest (

Otherwise you need the program DVD2Avi ( and the VFapi Codec (

You open the Vob Files in DVD2Avi and then choose the correct Audio Channel they are usually in the same order as on the DVD player (e.g. PowerDVD Or WinDVD)

Then you choose "File-->Save Project" NOT "Save Avi"

Choose Folder and wait. Make sure you have a .Wav and a .D2V if you only have the .D2V file try choosing a diffrent audio Channel.

When it's done you open the .D2V file in the VFapi program and choose convert it.

You now have a "Fake" Avi file, you can open in VirtualDub. The file uses the VFapi Codec to link to the pictures in the vob files.

You open the file in VirtualDub open the Audio and choose your codecs and type "File-->Save Avi)

It should work now, if not I Can't help you

Good Luck
