Any of you guys who have been posting lately know I'm having 'quality issues' (whining, complaining, begging) re: the new templates. However, due to the overwhelming amount of feedback and advice I've recieved, I'm beginning to think my Divx software could be the culprit. Is it possible for a file transcode to be affected by this? I'm curious, because playback quality on my PC with Divx looks just great. However, when opening my Divx 5.0.2 bundle, I saw the 'quality' slider is all the way to the left (low)!! I slid it all the way to the right, and have to wait about a half hour to finish up the first 1/2 of 'the Ring' (scary flick!) before I can test my theory.

Does anyone recommend ditching and re-installing a better Divx decoder/package? I'm all ears

Set the quality slider two notches back. The last two are for deringing which consumes huge amounts of CPU cycles.

hay Reno,

divX 5.02 is fine for me. course, you know there's a 5.03 now..

Only issue I know of 5.03 is that the KISS players don't paly them yet.
something about maybe needing a firmware update. Anyways..

I like 5.02, but play w/ different ideas w/ 3x also, back and forth.

JFY: the bundle I D/L'ed and installed was: DivX502Bundle.exe
And, so far, I haven't had any major problems with it. The two pass
is ok, but IMO, I prefer the single pass mode. That's up to you.

On and off, when time allows or I become just too bored w/ my other
projects and things, I will mess around w/ figuring out which is the
best way to encode to divX, then re-encode to MPEG1/2 to see just how
much quality loos there is (there are some to a degree) Lots of peoples
are re-encoding from divX to MPEG, and I thought if I could find that
notch in the divX encoding part, then perhaps they would, in the end,
yield better quality from a re-encode to MPEG1/2. Well, all this, when
I have time and stuff. But, for some reason, when I encode to divX MY
WAY, the quality is preddy good (in my eyes, and 13" tv)

Well, let me continue my tinkering.. good luck.
