AutoGK – Xvid/Divx tool

by James 14 November 2012 4 Comments

AutoGK is probably the most popular Divx/Xvid conversion tool around, maybe because the whole process is automated. That makes the software easy to use.
Program features support of:
– DVD/VOBs(unencrypted from hdd), MPEG2, MPEG1, transport streams (including multi-program ones) and AVI/DV input sources
– XviD or DivX(5/6) output formats
– AC3, DTS, PCM, MPA input audio tracks
– AC3, DTS, MPA, CBR/VBR MP3 output audio tracks
– two audio tracks in AVI
– external (vobsub) or internal (burnt-in) subtitles (with support of forced subs)
– HDTV input/output resolutions(upto 1920x***) and frame rates (50/60fps)
– automatic crop and resize based on compressibility of the source to achieve best results
– automatic detection of input source: PAL, NTSC, FILM, HYBRID
– automatic deinterlacer and IVTC
– automatic split into CD-sized chunks for main video and external subs

I’ve been using this tool for a couple of years now. It has recently reached version 2.48.
My advice for you is not to use version 2.45 because of a bug that makes undersized output files. I also recommend checking out the “hidden options”, CTRL+F9 for video and CTRL+F11 for audio. The advanced options provide many tweaks that can improve the quality of your output files.

    I have a problem with transfering TS files of DVD movies into an
    external HD device. All elements are fine (picture and sound)
    exept the subtitle file. Will this program, be helpfull?
    If not, is there any suggestion you can offer me.

    AutoGK can handle the subtitles, either by extracting them to external files or by burning them onto the video. You can also use SubRip to extract the subtitles to almost any format of your choice.
