Regarding the benchmark on the MPEG-4 Video Encoding:Xmpeg 4.2a w/ Divx 5.0 Pro (link below). The results show that you are receiving 24.34 FPS for an Athlon 850 -- How is this possible? I have used XMpeg 4.2a and 4.5 with Divx 3.11 to Divx 5.01 and never got such a high encoding rate with my current system.
i dont know about the high frame rates your getting but i guess it could be, the real reason im talking to you is im trying to figure out this problem im having... when i rip dvds to avi using divx some dvds dont work right, like the movie tommy boy, it ends early and the audio is way off. other movies copy completely but the audio is off by about a min toward the middle of the movie then syncs back up. i have successfully converted several dvds and they all work great, but just a select few dont work right. have you had this problem?
how do you shoot the devil in the back? what happens if you miss? -verbal
the only times i have had that problem with the audio is either when i used the divx audio (wma) codec (it doesnt keep the audio to the right length and the effect is worse the more time goes by), the other was because i forgot to change the sample rate (it was 48 but i was encoding to 44.1 without selecting 44.1 in vdub)
