DVDx 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;... read more

DVDx 2.7

Following on the success of DVDx 2.6 release, we're proud to announce the availability of DVDx 2.7 release, uploaded on labDV server and DVDx web site (soon on Source Forge server, but Starbuck needs to reconfigure its SF access). What's new in 2.7:

Third-party DLLs

  • nLame.dll 3.97 Final (Intel 9.1 compile)
  • libmmd.dll 9.1 (Intel 9.1 compile

GUI enhancements

  • Changed Open DVD root menu behavior, now display a Windows XP new syle file explorer dialog, initialized with last directory used by DVDx. Thus it's no longer annoying to change DVD drive for multiple drive computers or multiple DVDs ripped on hard drive.
  • Now display MPEG (VOB) file name without path in the MPEG2 file scanning progress window (required for long path current for DVDs ripped on hard drive).

New in DVDx 2.6

We're proud to announce that we succeeded in migrating the whole DVDx project to the latest Windows development platform: Microsoft Visual C++ 2500 Professional with Intel C++ 9.1 Compiler.

This has immediate benefit for the end-user by fixing bugs introduced by previous compiler, such as when DVDx silently crashes when exiting Input Settings with 44.1KHz or 48.0KHz (no conversion) option.

This will have great benefit for developers, so end-users, by providing new productivity features such as navigation across C++ objects declarations and definitions with one right-click. Intel 9.1 C++ compiler will provide latest greatest Hyper-Threading and Multi-Core optimization. And x64 cross-compilation will be facilitated. ... read more

New in DVDx 2.4

Now you can encode a SVCD in real time (25FPS) with DVDx 2.4 running on a Pentium 4D 830 (Dual Core 3GHz) and encode a DivX at 75FPS. So you can encode a 1h30 movie in 30 minutes, including the DeCSS process, which makes DVDx likely the fastest DVD ripping solution ever!

- Release executable is optimized for Intel Pentium 4, Intel Pentium M, new Intel
  Pentium 4 with Streaming SIMD Extensions 3 (SSE3) and compatible Intel processors
  (new AMD Athlon 64 support SSE3)
- Internal encoders not changed, but now compiled by new Intel 9.0 compiler for the
  official binary release, likely more reliable and faster (DVDx 2.4 is faster than
  DVDx 2.3: VCD +15%, SVCD +10%, DivX +5% on SSE3 processors and VCD +12%, SVCD +5%,
  DivX +5% on SSE2 processors)      ... [read more](/p/dvdx/news/2006/03/new-in-dvdx-24/)
