    Good day all. I am trying to rip a dvd and convert directly to divx so I can burn onto cdr. I am using Super DVD Ripper but the problem is that the file is either auto split in two or its too long to fit on a 700MB cdr. Does anyone know a better ripper/compressor software that will allow me to fit the whole movie onto one cdr or are there settings I am missing?
    Thank you

    you could simply stick the pieces back together with something like VirtualDub.

    For encoding I used to use FlaskMpeg, found it to be very good on file size and quality when using the xvid codec.

    not done it for a while now, may be better options availble, but I'm sure that you would be pleased with its results.

    Oh yeah ... free too

    I recommend GordianKnot

    In my opinion it is The Best :^)
    There is also AutoGK, a more automatic program similar to Dr.DivX (but free!) more suitable for nOObies.
    But try the Real Deal version first, it is not overly challenging.
    Yes Flask works too, I have used it but not lately...
    It had some problems when the DivX nth-pass codec was first introduced, and I never went back.
    Anyway I just backed-up Spider-Man 2 to only 1 700MB CD easily, and it is a 127 minute long movie.
    The DivX/GK quality is excellent ;^) although I still suffered terribly watching the (stupid) film... LoL
    Regards
