xvidenc 8.6.0 Description:
xvidenc is a tiny piece of software that allows users to encode DVD-Video discs to the popular XviD video format under GNU/Linux operating systems. It runs via the Linux command-line and uses the MEncoder utility from the MPlayer project. The tool is also known as the interactive shell script ripper for encoding a DVD-Video disc or any other video file to a high-quality XviD format thanks to the MPEG-4 codec. XviD is an open source project designed from the ground up to provide users with a codec that is faster and offers a better quality than the commercial DivX codec. As mentioned, the program can be used only via an X11 terminal emulator or the Linux console, using the xvid command followed by various options, such as encoding in one pass, two pass, or fixed-quant modes.
