Free AVI to DivX Conversion

It is very easy to convert existing AVI files to DivX ones (which can be played on PS2 using SMS or other media player of PS2), using a freeware program called VirtualDub. You'll need following utilities.
VirtualDub -->
2) DivX Codecs -->
3) MP3 codec --> (Optional)

After installation, start VirtualDub and follow below simple steps..

  1. File menu => Open video file - the orginal un-encoded AVI file
  2. In the "Video" menu, select "compression", and set it to the DivX Codec. You may optionally set Codec settings, like keyframes and bitrate. Please see this page for more information.
  3. Still in the Video menu, select the option "Full processing mode".
  4. If your orginal AVI had audio, please find out what frequency it is (right click on the file and select "properties", it should be listed in the "Details" section).
  5. Still in the Audio menu, select the option "AVI audio"
  6. Go to the Audio menu and select "compression", and set it to MPEG-3 with frequency matching that of your original AVI file, and also bitrate to at least 96. You may need to turn on the "Show all format" option to see all available options.
  7. Still in the Audio menu, select the option "Full processing mode"
  8. Finally, go to the file menu and select "Save AVI", and choose a name for the file (make it different to the name of the original AVI), and in a few minutes (depending on the size of your original AVI file), you'll have a perfect DivX AVI file.
