XviD guide

You will need the following software for this guide:

DVD Decrypter
GordianKnot Rippack
GordianKnot Codec pack
XviD 1.1 (if you're using XviD 1.1)

Step 0: First time setup

You will only have to perform this step once.

Install the GordianKnot Rippack, then install the GordianKnot system pack. When installing the codec pack, only select the codec you really want to include.

After installation start Nandub and VirtualDubMod manually one time and click OK to every warning that might appear after startup. You can find the link to both applications in your start menu under Programs - Gordian Knot - Apps.

Then start up Gordian Knot and click on the options tab. Then configure the XviD codec by clicking on the buttons for First Pass and Second pass.

Then configure the XviD 1.0 or XviD 1.1 codec.

Step 1: Basic GKnot Setup

This step will teach you how to set up GKnot for a perfectly good looking rip.

Step 2: Encoding video

Only a few more steps and GKnot will automatically encode video and multiplex audio for you without any further manual interaction.

Step 3: Splitting (if required)

If you created a movie for more than 1 CD and didn't use the autosplit feature, you have to split it up now.
