    I genuinely need help/ I have searched and googled and I am asking you for help.

    I am having a hard time installing this program. I am following this guide that says how to create a high quality xvid rip of my dvd.

    When I try to open up my d2v. file DGindex created for me I get the same prob as everyone else. The one that starts with
    ?????"file directory"????

    I had read there were 2 files I needed to install.

    One being vifpset the MS-DOS batch file and the other VFCodec.dll the application extension.

    When I go to open the second one a program called cdcheck pops up. I have tried to uninstall it but its nowhere to be found.

    Anyways any advice would be helpful and appreciated. I spent most of my day and came up empty.

    Also would i get the same quality if I ended up using auto gk?

    Right now my list of programs are:
    Step 1- DVD Decryptor
    Step 2-DGIndex
    STep 3-Delaycut
    Step 4-VFAPIConvEN (which I cant get to read my d2v. file)
    Step 5-VirtualDubMod

    No high quality guide will tell you to use VFAPI. Use AVISynth instead.

    I have tried installing avissynth a few times and do not see the .exe file. I thought it was just a plug in.

    There is no exe. AVISynth is a library. If you have AVISynth installed and write a script, then VDub will be able to load it.

    So something like:
    mpeg2source("whatever.d2v")
    crop(8,8,8,8)
    lanczos4resize(640,480)

    Any filtering that you were planning on doing in VDub, do in AVISynth and set vdub's video compression to fast recompress.
