Just built a new P4 D system. Trying to encode a dvd > divx using dvdrip. DVD rips just fine, vobs are created as expected and all directories are writable. The problem occurs whether I choose divx4 or divx5.

media-video/dvdrip: 0.97.2
media-video/transcode: 0.6.14-r3

I've searched the forums and found nothing. Google also provides no answers. I've ripped and encoded around 30 DVD's using dvdrip on my old system. The settings are the same, and I'm out of ideas. Here's the exact error message from dvdrip:
Code:
Job 'Transcoding video - title #1, pass 1' failed.

Executed command: mkdir -m 0775 -p '/home/barry/DVDrip/ChristmasStory/tmp' && cd /home/barry/DVDrip/ChristmasStory/tmp && dr_exec transcode -H 10 -a 0 -x vob -i /home/barry/DVDrip/ChristmasStory/vob/001 -w 1957,50 -b 128,0,0 -s 2.320 --a52_drc_off -f 24,1 -M 2 -Y 4,0,4,0 -B 15,10,8 -R 1 -y divx4,null -o /dev/null --print_status 20 && echo DVDRIP_SUCCESS

Last output was:

te: Broken pipe
syncinfo write error (0)
write: Broken pipe
syncinfo write error (0)
write: Broken pipe
syncinfo write error (0)

If anyone has any ideas, I'd love to hear 'em. Thanks.

You could try executing this command directly in a shell and get more verbose messages about what is going wrong.

Thanks for the response, and good suggestion! It looks like I'm missing "libdivxencore.so.0":
Code:
[export_divx5.so] libdivxencore.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
[transcode] warning : failed to init DivX 5.0 Codec
[transcode] warning : (encoder.c) video export module error: init failed
[transcode] critical: failed to init encoder
barry@ceres ~ $ sh: line 1: 27632 Broken pipe             tccat -i "/home/barry/

I have avifile, and ffmpeg emerged, so I'm not sure what package I need. Is there an easy way to find what package owns that file? I don't see any packages for divx4linux, etc.

Thanks again for the response.

Well, I've at least found a decent workaround, for now.

The reason I've been trying to get divx working is because I rip dvd's for use on my Archos PMA430. I've only ever had luck getting divx encoded movies to play on it. Since I could not get divx working with transcode/dvdrip, I tried a rip to XviD 4 and transferred it to the Archos and it played fine. So that will do for now. I'd still like to see if I can solve the issue, but at least it's not urgent now.

As far as the main issue goes, I think it has to do with ffmpeg and avifile issues. There's lots on these forums about that, like this one: https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-386858-start-0-postdays-0-postorder-asc-highlight-ffreadhandler+cpp+avifile.html.

Thanks again.

Maybe the transcode / divx package was broken due to an update to one of it's dependencies. Usually you'd use revdep-rebuild to fix that, however my personal experience is that revdep-rebuild often does not detect breakage. The only solution in that case is to determine the broken packages manually, and re-emerge them.

I was thinking about the rebuild, but the fact that I cannot find the divx library (the one called by DVDrip) has me wondering if support has just be dropped (in portage). I know there used to be a divx4linux ebuild. It's not in the portage tree anymore.

Thanks,
Barry

divx4linux support has been dropped in transcode

I use the ffmpeg setting. It has better quality and plays in my divx hardware player.

Well, that explains it. I have been using the XviD settings with no problem on the archos, so it's not big deal anyway, but thanks for the pointer. (note to self: always check the changelog...).

I have had trouble with Xvid (pre 1.0) in my Phillips player. I can't think of my players model number right now. FFmepg works great though and there is a big quality improvement over divx4 or 5 IMO. If Xvid works in your player maybe I'll try Xvid again. Thanks

Happy Holidays

Sorry for being an idiot, but I have the same problem and can't figure out the explanation. :oops:

I'm using MythTV to rip a DVD, but the log says:
Code:
15:54:37: launching job: job dvd 2 1 9 0 -1 /mnt/video/videos//FIREFLY_S1E2
15:54:37: transcode command will be: transcode -i /var/lib/mythdvd/temp/FIREFLY_S1E2/vob/ -g 720x576 -f 0,3 -M 1 -V -j 0,16,0,16 -B 5,0 -y divx5 -w 1618 -o /mnt/video/videos/FIREFLY_S1E2.avi --print_status 20 --color 0
15:54:37: job thread beginning to rip dvd title
15:57:54: job thread finished ripping dvd title
15:57:56: job finished succesfully: job dvd 2 1 9 0 -1 /mnt/video/videos//FIREFLY_S1E2

... which looks OK ("success!"), but the file isn't actually transcoded. When I run that transcode command manually, it says:
Code:

# transcode -i /var/lib/mythdvd/temp/FIREFLY_S1E2/vob/ -g 720x576 -f 0,3 -M 1 -V -j 0,16,0,16 -B 5,0 -y divx5 -w 1618 -o /mnt/video/videos/FIREFLY_S1E2.avi --print_status 20 --color 0

Like it says, I don't have libdivxencore.so. But what do I need to emerge to get it?
