DVDX - Try This Player

DVDx is a free software developed by the labDV team, the DVDx open-source project is hosted at Source-Forge. I'm using did DVD player most of the time rather than other type of players because of DVDX simplicity and somehow I liked the output quality of DVDX.

You can download DVDX at Here's some informations about DVDX. You can purchase the Ultra version if you like Dvdx player or just stick to the free version.

DVDx copies DVD movie to VCD, SVCD, DivX, AVI or WMV in one step.

DVDx has been designed as a simple and intuitive program especially for unexperimented users.

DVDx produces high quality MPEG and AVI movies and advanced features provides smart settings for experimented users.

What version is right for me ?

DVDx Ultra Edition can copy protected movies while standard version can't.

If you're allowed to copy commercial or protected movies, we strongly recommend you the Ultra Edition.

DVDx is freeware, shall I buy a VIP Pass !?

Sure! . Freeware has two acceptions: gratis software or free access of source code. DVDx accepts both: free access to source code and gratis.

While labDV team and other nice coders work for free to make DVDx a great software, we can't give our own money (got from our regular job) to distribute DVDx and to make it accessible to the most. So buying a VIP Pass helps to pay for web hosting and internet bandwidth and strongly encourages further developments.

However you can get standard version binaries for free from Source-Forge servers and you can get Ultra Edition binaries for free from magazine CD-ROMs or any other web sites providing free software download. The source code includes Ultra Edition as well, so you can compile your own ultra Edition gratis.

Why DVDx is the fastest DVD backup solution out there ?

DVDx is likely the fastest solution ever to copy a DVD into a DivX file because the DVD reading (and decrypting) is done while encoding to DivX.

Alternative solutions require to copy the DVD to the hard drive with DVD Decrypter (or SmartRipper or any other DVD ripping software) which takes about 30 minutes, and then the encoding time is added. So with a 75FPS encoding speed for a 1:30 PAL (25FPS) movie, the total ripping time of alternative software is 1 hour. While DVDx will take less than 32 minutes (at 72FPS).

We encourage you to upgrade your DivX codec to latest version which takes benefit from latest compiler enhancement for new Intel/AMD processors. On a $1,000 consumer HP Pavilion with a Intel Pentium 830D, the encoding DVDx frame rate is 72FPS with DivX Pro 6.1.1 and later.

To encode to MPEG VCD/SVCD with the internal encoder or to encode to Windows Media, DVDx is also the fastest solution for the same reason.If you like this post please consider subscribe to my full feed RSS or subscribe by e-mail , Thank You .
