Welcome to the Drip Project Website
   Drip is a DVD to DIVX conversion application. It's made up out two applications: a DVD reader and a DIVX encoder. The reader is a GUI for the GNOME environment, the DIVX encoder a text mode tool. You wont have to learn to use the textmode tool, because the GUI also is a frontend for it. Drip is not yet usable for NTSC (Region1) DVDs because those are prepared differently as PAL DVDs.
   The Drip project page can be found at sourceforge
   Drip is available as source code only, and it is GPL licenced.
   This project has been initiated by Jarl van Katwijk. Please use the sourceforge forums for feedback. (bugs, help, discuss)
  • Utilisation of avifile encoding, so much avifile codecs support, o.a. MSMPEG4, OpenDIVX and Xvid encoding support
  • MP3 audio encoding, also dual channel.
  • DVD reading, based on libraries libdvdread and libdvdcss
  • Subpictures overlaying (not as seperate data)
  • Automatic clipping, blurring and scaling of video stream
  • Deinterlacing of PAL video (Not for interlaced NTSC material, but helps a little)
  • DVDdb support and DVD header pasring for automatic DIVX naming
  • Terminal only encoding ('dripencoder')
  • Plugin filters for audio and video.
  • Many other options and logic for ONE RUN divx creation
Missing Features
  • NTSC deinterlacing.
  • Complete PCM handling. PCM audio tends to go out of sync with current code. Need more testing material..
  • Chapter handling. Drip offers Program Chain and angle selection, but not seperate chapters.
