A shell script which makes it easy to encode DVDs, (S)VCDs or video files to the Xvid video format using MEncoder from the MPlayer project.
xvidenc is written in a way to be useful for power users yet it is also very user friendly for people who are novices when it comes to video encoding. xvidenc operates by asking questions to the user, collecting the input and passing it over to the encoder software. One of its unique features is the ability to use built-in video quality presets. This is especially useful to people who are just starting to encode video.
xvidenc has a total of 17 video quality presets ranging from Ultra Low Quality to Near Lossless Quality. It further has the ability to
auto-detect a lot of stuff, like DVD titles, chapters, subtitles, audio streams, and it supports frequently used video filters like scale, crop, dering, deblock, noise, denoise, (un)sharp mask/gaussian blur, deinterlace, interlace, inverse telecine/pullup and hard telecine/3:2 pulldown.
