DVDx 4.0.0.1 for Windows and now for Linux!

We're proud to be announce the very first release of DVDx for Linux platforms!

Linux users were expecting DVDx for a long time and they had to wait the completely re-written DVDx 4 versions. DVDx 4 Linux editions offers same GUI with same features as the Windows versions. There's a limitation, due to FFmpeg/MEncoder, the Linux edition supports less output formats, we've to disable 3GP/3G2, iPod, PSP, MP4 audio files and MP4/AAC audio codec. Nevertheless Linux users are able to encode in a bunch of video formats;

AVI (DivX/Xvid)
Flash Video
Matroska
Apple QuickTime
MP4
MPEG-1/MPEG-2 (VCD, xVCD, SVCD, CVD, DVD)
Ogg Vorbis

and audio formats: AC-3, AU, MP3 and WAV.

We aren't use to package Linux applications for Debian or Ubuntu distros, so we've release DVDx 4.0 in a Linux i386 self-installer.

We encourage Windows users to upgrade to 4.0.0.1 for the improvements and the new MPlayer engine which displays subtitles correctly.
