Cool Converting DVD to MPEG to MQV

Hey people,

I just dicovered this. DVDx is a program that converts DVD's
to MPEG format.

whats so great about this? well it a very usefull utility that will
enable you to watch high quality movies, with amazing sound
conversions, On your NX.

Best of all it FREEWARE!

I just finished watching The Matrix on my clie! how cool is that!

You can download it here:
http://www.digital-digest.com/dvd/downloads/dvdx.html

All you need to do is Have your output frame rate at 23.976
and under Export Setings --> Resolution set it to 352x240

Simple as that!

(Thanks shack072 THANKS ALOT!)

I use SmartRipper, DVD2AVI,and TMPGEnc to rip my DVD's for the Clie.

What kind of time is it taking you for the rip to mpg?

I'm not sure. I left it on and went somewhere for a long while, but by the time i got back it was finished and i didnt check the
time.

What I like about it, is that i only need to use 2 simple
conversions: DVDx and then just Right clicking on the file to
send it to the Clie

I have heard of the programs you are talking about and, to be
honest with you, I was lazy to download the files plus it seemed
it would take too long to convert the file.

This is really simple

it takes me about an hour and a half to an hour and 45 min to convert the average movie. then i spend a few minutes cutting off things like the credits at the end etc... to shorten the movie of stuff i dont care to watch.

i have one 128 meg and one 64 meg. I use the 64 for all my apps and the 128 for putting a movie on. I set image converter to low quality and the file is usualy 80-100 meg. I find that even at this quality the movies are still quite enjoyable for me. After all if i want super quality or to watch movies constantly i would get a portable dvd player. but this is perfect for boring trips, waiting in a doctors office, etc...

STEP1: INSTALL (duh)

ok for real now

STEP2: click on
Settings --> Input Settings.
(window pops up)

STEP3: There is a section on the mid-left side that says:
"Output Frame Rate:"

Using the drop down arrow select the "23.976 NTSC" Then Click
OK (window should close)

STEP4: click on
Settings --> Output Settings.
(Window pops up)

STEP1: INSTALL (duh)

ok for real now
but before i go on i would like to say that i am not very knowlegeable about this i just learning myself but these are the steps I took which was suggested to me by shack072.

STEP2: click on
Settings --> Input Settings.
(new window opens)

STEP3: There is a section on the mid-left side that says:
"Output Frame Rate:"

Using the drop down arrow select the "23.976 NTSC" Then Click
OK (window closes)

STEP4: click on
Settings --> Output Settings.
(new window opens)

STEP5: on the top right hand corner you should find a box that
says: "Export Settings:"
change the current value (352x288) to 352x240

Click Apply (window closes)

STEP6:Go to
File --> Open DVD Root (new window opens)
then select your DVD Drive.
(new window opens: "Select Title")

STEP6: Select the one that says: TitleX Longest Prog: ####

then select the biggest one to Rip the whole movie or just select whichever one you like to rip only parts of the movie (Which, by the way, is really cool)

STEP7: go to
file --> select destination --> browse --> name the file "*.mpeg"

Hope this helps
should you have any problems let me know and i will try to help you.

about the right clicking thingy ill tell you tomorrow. I gotta go.
about the " I have 37 seconds recorded and my file is 5mb!"
DUDE! what did you do? yes something is wrong.

about the IFO error: do you have a DVD player?

Just thought i asked becuase i tried opening the DVD on the wrong drive and it gave me the same error.

first rule of troubleshooting: always check the obvious
