    [How To]Creating Divx Files

    oops...sorry, was at work, and missed a couple of pages of this discussion. As such it looks like ffmpegx and numerous others have been covered in detail :-) By the way, someone mentioned dvision. Still use that sometimes and agree that it is a nice easy app to use

    [How To]Creating Divx Files

    I use OsEX to rip the DVD to a single vob. I then use ffmpegX to create the divx. ffmpegX is a GUI front end for some open source tools (namely ffmpeg, mencoder and mpeg2enc) that is extremely feature rich and will convert pretty much anything to anything. Once you have had a couple of...

    I'd like to see someone get this avi working on a mac...

    Have you tried vlc from As far as I am concerned, this is the one stop shop for divx/ avi playing on the MC, and has always handled strange dovx files with suround tracks etc. If you are running a G4, feel free to run the latest 0.62, but if you are on a G3, 0.46 is less...

    I cant connect my OS X to my Win2000

    yes it is possible. Depnds on your hardware as to whether you will need a cross over. Many new NICs will autodetect in which cas you dont need a cross over cable. However, to be on the safe side, probably better to use one

    I cant connect my OS X to my Win2000

    So the thing that I dont get is whether you actually have connected to the share yet, but are getting the error or what? Also, you say that it doesnt list your "shared stuff" Is this that you dont see the files in the shared drive in finder?

    OSX 10.2.6 and Windows 2000/XP shares

    You comment that you can browse DHCP hosts, and not static. Do you static hosts talk to WINS. To my knowledge (and I could be wrong), MACOSX.2 does not truly browse windows hosts. If you are using a WINS server, then you may see a difference. Otherwise, hosts in finder/ connect to server are...

    powerbook display as negative

    Recently I woke my powerbook firewire (running 10.2.6) up and the display looked like a negative. I checked the settings and they looked OK. I then booted to 9 and all was ok, so I know that it isn't a hardware problem. Also, when booting to OS X, the display is fine right until user login...

    Wlan Driving Me Crazy!! Help!!!

    I'll be honest with you I have not tried this configuration, but am willing to throw in my two bobs worth. You have a couple of things to think about. Imagine you were running a bridged lan using wireless in the typical configuration. Essentially you want to make one transparent network/...
