    That's a good question from someone(that's
    me :)) who is still learning about divx.
    I know a rule which says "For enlarging use
    bilinear and for shrinking use bicubic".
    So...in my case (divx) I "shrink" the video
    (I use smaller resolution than DVD's).
    Should then bicubic be my choise? And what
    are these A=-0.75,A=-0.60 etc?

    Hi Jino.

    Bi-cubic all the way, is what I would say.

    I think you probably got that rule from Nicky Page (whose opinion I respect *greatly*), but in this one particular case, I found that his observation, "contrary to popular belief, bi-linear looks just as good as bi-cubic" just didn't seem true (to me). In every case, I found bi-linear resizing to be inferior (b-l-u-r-r-y, jagged edges) to bi-cubic. Bi-linear is faster though. [shrug]
