Xvid or Divx?

    Hi all,
    Im not new to dvd ripping and vcd ecoding but I am new to xvid and divx. I was wondering what you all think is better to encode with, xvid or divx? I've encoded several xvid movies and am very pleased with how they turned out. I started enoding a divx movie but grew impatient with the encoding time. Is divx encoding time usually longer than xvid? what are your experiences with xvid and divx encoding times?

    I dont see much difference between the two to be quite honest! But DivX can be created more easily with Dr. DivX now!

    thats right Dr.Divx has a much more friendly way of creating now
    although it is argued that xvid is the minutest slightest bit better i stick to DivX whichever floats ur boat

    DivX and the output file should be AVI m8.

    DivX and Xvid are similar, but Kioepe will tell you that Xvid has a higher frame per second at the same output and bitrate

    Can any one plz let me know how to create a xvid or divx files?? I tried software such as DVD-TO-AVI & Super DVD Ripper using the Divx Codec but I get such a large file and also the the video looks disorted its like a good quality picture with a bad reciption. I do not want to use multiple software just to create an AVI file so if you really have a simple solution step by step and willing to share with me plz email me at bawitdaba0o0@cwazy.co.uk. I really appreciate it. Maybe we can share video once I am able to create one. Thanx.

    Personally, i think xvid gives a much more sharper picture than divx.

    Isnt the xvid source available? (in addition to the compiled binaries). We cant exactly get access to the DivX source (well, not legally anyways)
