The software is very light weight and setting it up for ripping is a breeze. DVDx has built-in MPEG encoding routines, but it can also be used with an Adobe Premiere plug-in (LSX, Panasonic or CinemaCraft) or TMPGEnc. Using TMPGEnc requires the VideoServer AVI-wrapper.
If DVD2SVCD seems too difficult to use, or you're just looking for a quick solution, look no further!

First, I have always had trouble with Audio/Video Sync when using this software to produce SVCD's. Second off, the SVCD's produced were of considerable size, while DIKO compresses most movies into the space of 1 CD, DVDx normally takes 2 or 3. Other than that, it's great software, and normally works seamlessly.
Excellent Software - and thanks to the developers!
Key features I sought.
* Ability to maintain widescreen aspect ratio when scaling down to 320x240. Other tools simply stretched the widescreen to the full height of the small screen.
* Ability to make slight adjustments (crop/zoom) the widescreen image so that it fills the small screen more efficiently (ever seen a 2.35:1 ratio on 320x240? It's small!).
DVDx 2.3 did the trick! The program could use a facelift and there's a few minor bugs, but this is a piece of software well worth supporting. Awesome.
