Do you have a PC with Windows installed and are you interested in understanding how to create DivX from DVD? Then give one now I look at the ad hoc programs that I have provided to indicate and explain to you below. I am sure they will be able to satisfy you.

DVDx

The first of the useful resources to create DivX from DVD that I want to tell you about is DVDx, a free program (for copying and decrypting files, however, it is necessary to buy the user license), running on all Windows operating systems (even older ones) and able to fulfill the purpose in question in a handful of clicks . Install it and you will no longer have the fear of "consuming" your beloved original disks!



First, connected to the download page, click on the link Download DVDx 4.2 Setup.exe from VideoHelp present at the top and then on the link Download DVDx 4.2 Setup.exe here on the further page displays. Then wait for the download procedure to start and complete, then open the .exe file obtained.

Then wait a few moments for the installation procedure to be started and completed and click on the button Close in the window that appeared on the screen. Then insert the DVD you intend to transform into DivX into your computer and start DVDx via its icon that has been added to the desktop.

Now, press the button ignore which is in the lower right part of the window that appears on the screen to ignore the software activation procedure and in the additional window you see appear select the item Open disc or folder (Bluray / DVD) annessa to the menu Fillet top left. Then select the folder VIDEO_TS contained inside the DVD drive and first click on OK and then Select to open your DVD in DVDx.



At this point, you need to set your preferences for converting DVD to DivX. So make sure there is a check mark next to the items Original Colors (to keep the colors of the film intact), Dolby Surround (to have high quality audio even in DivX) e Detect Prog 24 Hz (to keep the fluidity of the film intact) and click on the button OK to save the settings.

AutoGK

As an alternative to the above program, you can rely on AutoGK. This is an old-fashioned but still very good software for Windows operating systems. It is open source in nature and totally free and allows you to turn DVDs into DivX (or Xvid) format files. The interface is quite simple and intuitive even for those who are about to carry out operations of this type for the first time. The only negative note, if we want to define it that way, is that during the setup it proposes the installation of various accessory programs but just pay a minimum of attention to it to avoid unwanted installations.

Now, start the program by calling it from Start menu, presses on yellow folder with "+" that you find next to the item Input file: in the software window and select the main .IFO file contained in the folder VIDEO_TS of the DVD. Then click on the button with the yellow folder and the "+" that you find next to the item File output: and select the destination location.

Now proceed to select the audio track of the original DVD and possibly the subtitle language to add to the movie by acting on the section Step 2: Select audo track and subtitle track of the program window.

Then press the button Add Job.

Then click on Home and therefore wait for the whole procedure to be started and completed. In the box at the bottom left the program will write all the operations carried out and the time taken. At the end of the process, the writing will appear Job finishied and you will then find the final file in the previously selected location.

Toast Titanium

If the above solution to create DivX from DVD has not convinced you in a particular way and you are looking for a more performing tool, then the advice I can give you is to rely on a pay solution such as Toast Titanium.

This is a commercial software (costs € 89,99) capable of carrying out all kinds of operations of burning and copying, conversion and sharing and of nature and modification of videos. In short, it constitutes a much more versatile and professional tool than Burn (which can be easily guessed from the price).

Considering the cost that is anything but low, before purchasing the program from the official website of the same, I recommend that you first of all evaluate whether it is a resource that is actually your chaste or not and then connect to the page dedicated to software that you find on the website of MacUpdate in such a way as to be able to check the availability of a possible demo or that of some discount (from time to time they are offered) on the actual purchase price.
