Default DivX 5 Vs DivX 4.12

I used DivX 5 (which took over 4.12 ) to encode part of a film, but gave me worse quality than 4.12, when same settings were used on both?
How comes?

cause they both suck!

Anyway, because DIVX 5 is still in the early stages, give it time.

But usually cause the slack off when doing programming!

5 is an upgrade over for 4.12. Consider it something like 4.13, only that the upgrade is very much bigger compared to previous ones. Hence, the 'takeover' of 4.12, though I would be more inclined to call it upgrade.

Using the same settings in divx4 and 5 will produce nearly identical results, so the standard version of divx5, does not really deserve the name divx5 (one of the divx developers has agreed with me on this), the pro version adds some nice features which should help quality, but they also require alot more cpu power for playback.

Anyway the divx5 format like divx3 and 4 are based on mpeg4, there are limits to what can be achived with this or any other format for that matter. So don't expect any miracles.

I'd like to insert a HUH?? also

5 std does add stuff that 4.12 does not have like the Psychovisual modeling and is further optimized for P4 and Athlon.

The xXx trailer looks pretty good at 9mb in size, even when stretched to 1024x768 full screen. I aint played it with 5 (don't like it) yet though only with 4, so I may be missing some of the extra stuff that 5 could do.

khp & techno will you 2 stop bashing each other, or it's no tea and straight to bed

All bashing stopped as of my last post.

What is wrong with people in these days? Why don't they respect anyone?

I have no grudge against KHP but the way he is going...

Let's just stop this. The thread is becoming unhealthy.
