I do most of my movie backups using DVDs with various programs, decrypter, nero, shrink, etc. However, I have also played around with DivX - always with disappointing results. I tried Dr. Divx and wound up with sound/picture synch problems. Recently I encoded a movie using A1 DVD Ripper Professional (1.02) and although I think the video looks ok, again the sound is out of synch - and depending on which program I use to play it back, it gets more or less out of synch. Oh, the video is jerky as well - making it harder to tell what's what. I have used WinMedia Player 10, BSR, Divx Player and Vob Virtual . . . I tried to synch the sound and video using Vob but nothing changed. I'm thinking perhaps the sound and video are timed ok but the players I use do not handle the divx format well. To be honest, I'm at a complete loss as I've searched the forums here and at divx.com and with google and I'm no closer to a solution. Any help will be much appreciated.
