Description

I am an advanced member of the SimpleDivX forum. SimpleDivx? used the 1.Opre
software for encoding and playing. SimpleDivX is designed for the novice and
is used in conjunction with MEncoder and MPlayer forconversion from DVD to
DivX and Xvid.

There are two issues with Opre7.

  1. When converting a 6 channel (5.1 dolby)DVD .ifo to DivX or Xvid the

finished product is 2 channel stereo. This has been confirmed with a number of
codec software including "Avicodec".

  1. After the file is encoded the finished prodict is not DivX or Xvid. The

file is FMP4.

We would appreciate any help.

e.g. -ffourcc XVID

No reply, so I assume you could get it to work.

No not really. Having not worked with MEncoder, the reply in comment 1 isn't
discriptive enought for me. I'm assuming this is script to be added to
mplayer.ini, but I'm not sure. Is it possible to supply a step by step
instruction?

Those are options you have to add to the mencoder command line (you can put
them in the config file, too, but mplayer.ini isn't the config file, read the
DOCS/mailing list if you need need more info on that).
Something like this might work:
mencoder -channels 6 -ffourcc XVID -oac pcm -ovc lavc -lavcopts
vcodec=mpeg4:mbd=2:vqscale=2
Will produce a very big file though. Ask on the mencoder-users list if you have
usage questions.
Also be aware that e.g. mp3 doesn't support more than 2 channels, -oac copy
instead of -oac pcm _might_ work better.
