DIVX to AVI: Convert Video from DIVX(DivX Video) to AVI(Audio Video Interleaved) with River Past Video Cleaner, DIVX2AVI converter, conversion


What is DIVX?

DivX is a brand name of products created by DivX, Inc. (formerly DivXNetworks, Inc.), including the DivX Codec which has become popular due to its ability to compress lengthy video segments into small sizes while maintaining relatively high visual quality. The DivX codec uses lossy MPEG-4 Part 2 compression, also known as MPEG-4 ASP, where quality is balanced against file size for utility. It is one of several codecs commonly associated with "ripping", whereby audio and video multimedia are transferred to a hard disk and transcoded. Many newer "DivX Certified" DVD players are able to play DivX encoded movies, although the Qpel and global motion compensation features are often omitted to reduce processing requirements. They are also excluded from the base DivX encoding profiles for compatibility reasons.

To convert from DivX video, you will need to either get the DivX codec from www.divx.com, or use a compatible decoder like ffdShow, which is part of CCCP.


What is AVI?

Defined by Microsoft, AVI stands for Audio Video Interleave. It is a special case of the RIFF (Resource Interchange File Format). AVI is the most common format for audio/video data on the PC.

AVI is Microsoft's response to Apple's QuickTime technology. Early AVI files were limited on choice of video and audio codecs, quality, and resolution. However, with the introduction of DirectShow, AVI became a very flexible and powerful architecture. Some newer codecs including DivX and XviD enable AVI files to have similar or even better quality than DVD.

Select output format

Use the setting panel on the bottom of the window to control the output format. Click on the toggle to the left of the "Output Format" label to expand the panel. Select "AVI - Audio Video Interleave" as the "File Type".


Change Video Settings

Click on the toggle to the left of the "Video Settings" label to expand the panel.


Select "Specify" under "Size" and/or "Frame rate" to enter the video resolution and/or frame rate.


You can change the compressor, quality, size, and frame rate of the video.

The size of the AVI file depend a lot on the chosen video compressor. Microsoft ships some standard codecs with Windows, including MJPEG, Microsoft Video 1 and Cinepak. Those are old codecs and are not very efficient. It is not uncommon that your AVI files will be 10x to 50x bigger than your original files if you are converting from DIVX, MOV, MPEG, WMV or anything encoded with a MPEG based codec.

You can use additional codecs from Microsoft or third party codecs to reduce the file size. DivX and Xvid are two excellent third party codecs, which produces video with excellent quality with smaller file size. Both of them are based on MPEG-4, and both can be used with AVI file format.

However, if you use any non-standard codecs for the AVI file, please keep in mind that the viewer of the video must have the codecs installed on their PC too, and your file may not be compatible with all video editing software.

The file size also depend on the "Quality" setting. Move the slider to the left for smaller file size, at the expense of video quality.

Change Audio Settings

Click on the toggle to the left of the "Audio Settings" label to expand the panel.


Select the audio compressor for the conversion. Depending on the compressor, you may also change the sample rate, channel (stereo or mono), resolution, and bitrate.

Do not use "MPEG Layer-3" as the audio compressor. It does not work correctly in video files and often causes the conversion to abort in the middle. If you prefer to have MP3 audio in the AVI file, download lame_enc.dll instead.


Select output directory

Expand the "Output Directory" panel. Use the "Browse" button to select an output directory.



Convert

Click the "Convert" button on the tool bar.
