Making divx videos from dvd's

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Well like the title says I wana rip my dvd's and turn them into divx video files.

I want to buy a portable HDD and load up all my movies on to it with VLC media player so that I can play them on any computer.

I have downloaded movies before and tried messing around with the Divx pro trial but just couldent get it to work.

Can someone point me in the right direction as to what programs to use, how to use them, or anything else that might be helpfull. I appreciate ant help and will give rep to anyone who is of help, or who puts in an effort.

I use TMPGEnc DVD Author 3 with DivX Authoring for most of my needs of that purpose
Sony makes the DVD Architect Pro 4.5 that I have as well, but I prefer the TMPGEnc DVD Author 3 with DivX Authoring.

Where can I get these programs? Is it pretty straight forward to do this? Like do you just rip and convert into divx?

Ok well I downloaded TMPGEnc DVD Author 3 with DivX Authoring but whenever I try to load a dvd as the source it says unsuported file type.

Am I doing something wrong? All I want to do is make my dvd's into divx files. Do you have to rip the dvd's first or something like that?
