AutoGK (Auto Gordian Knot) is powerful and very easy to use tool for making DVD rips. It was designed for people who know very little about video conversion. It includes everything you need to rip DVD to DivX/Xvid in very easy-to-use interface.

Creating perfect DivX/XviD with AC3 or VBR-MP3 soundtracks is extremely easy, since AutoGK is able to calculate the maxium bitrate that can be used for video to still fit in on the selected CD/DVD size.

contains following codecs and tools:

VirtualDubMod
AviSynth
BeSweet
DVD2AVIdg
XviD
VobSub

DivX is also supported, but you need to download the codec separately.

AutoGK v2.55

I normally use DVD Fab Platinum to convert my movies to .avi. Several people said Auto GK was "good" so I tried it. It took about the same time as DVD Fab to copy/convert my movie. The video quality was decent. But the audio was not sync'd to the video. The software doesn't show the progress of the conversion, and the instructions for starting the software are not as clear as DVD Fab. ImTOO DVD Ripper had the same sync problem, but the latest update seems to have fixed that. I think I'll pass on AutoGK.

AutoGK v2.48 Beta (update)

After all the software I have tried, paid for etc.....and problems I ran into converting ripped movie/video files to avi with xvid codec with the high dollar crap on the market,AutoGK is by far the best there is to use. I have converted over 1000 movies with virtually no problems. Most problems occur in the ripping process. Dont know what I would do without it. It is very easy to use, jsut stick with the defaults and let er go.

AutoGK v2.40 <br/> I use this all the time. I have at least 400+ AVI movies on my 1TB usb hard drive. I would recommend this to anyone.

AutoGK v2.40

EASY, i usually run it @ night while i sleep, and it actually lets me tweak the files size so i can fit an entire tv season onto a DVD5. all in all i give it a 10 out of 10.

AutoGK v2.40

Isn't it funny how older programs work better than the new stuff? I searched, tried, and searched again for something that would make this easy. I'm not very informed about video codecs and compression, bit rates and all that stuff. AutoGK works great. I don't know what I'd do without it. It uses the Xvid codec which I think is best for encoding movies. <br/> <br/>In other programs that will encode with Xvid, you have to set the encode options manually. This is what I find difficult to get the same output I get from AutoGK, because it does the settings in the background and you don't have to touch it. <br/> <br/>For the novice, this is the best program around, even if it is a few years old. It works! Even on XP.
