I bought the Divx Converter and love to use it but I am running into problems because it will not convert many formats that I use.  The main one that I am concerned with is MPEG-4.  Is there anyone out there that is familiar with this that can help me out? Thanks

Here's a nice piece of software that would do that for you easily.

They have a trial version so you can make sure it works before purchasing.

Good Luck.

fredshovel:
I have some video files that are MPEG 4 and Galaxy, (my external hard drive enclosure where I store my video files) does not support MPEG 4 so I have to convert everything over to Divx.  Also, I have just transfered a Tivo file to my computer with a .Tivo extension and I need to be able to re-format it to Divx but I can't find any software that will do that.  The reason I like Divx is that it produces a much smaller file with excellent quality.  Have any suggestions? - Thanks.

I went to the site you provided but what I see in the tutorial is a .avi extension and not a Divx.  Are they one and the same?

Ok,
If your encoder is not doing it for you I would suggest getting a free copy of SUPER (ENCODER).
http://www.afterdawn.com/software/video_software/video_encoders/super.cfm

In the top left corner you choose AVI for the output container (this is what DivX uses)
In the centre box you choose Divx
In the far right box you would choose Mp3.

Just leave everything else unchanged.

Just to clarify, AVI is a Windows container format -- it's what some people call a wrapper. So you wrap the DIVX codec inside the AVI container. That's why it has an AVI extension.
But most AVIs aren't DIVx -- they just use it as a wrapper.
