    Converting Movies to Divx for Archos
    I have an Archos AV700 movie player and need to convert movies to divx format or xvid to play on this player, i used to have a PC and used pocket converter. I have a G4 running 10.4.11. I am also going to get an iphone 4 so could do with something which would convert movies to play on this too and realy need something which can hardcode subtitles into the movie too. Thanks.

    I think your better option would be to convert to mp4.

    According to this faq: ARCHOS

    MPEG-4 SP with B-Frames with stereo sound. Near DVD quality up to 720x480 @ 30 f/s (NTSC), 720x576 @ 25 f/s (PAL), AVI file format (including WMV9 SP protected files) up to 352x288 @ 30 f/s and 800 Kbits
    you can get higher quality it seems with mpeg 4 files, so I don't know why you would want to convert to avi... Plus, the iPhone 4 plays mp4 and not avi, so you'll have to convert it to mp4 anyway.

    Thanks, will try but still need something to hardcode subtitles. I am now trying to convert to mpg4 with mpeg streamclip but this has no option (which i can find) to add subs.

    Take a look at:

    Submerge 1.9.3 - VideoHelp.com Downloads

    and

    AviDemux 2.5.3 - VideoHelp.com Downloads

    and

    ffmpegx

    One of those should be able to do it for you. I'd probably start with submerge since it's specifically designed to hard sub.

    ffmpegX a DVD, SVCD, VCD, CVD, VOB, DivX, XviD, H.264, PSP, iPod, MP4, MOV, FLV encoder for Mac OSX

    How's ffmpegx? It's pretty versatile. Should be able to do what you want I think
    archos is our language's variant on the greek word "apxos", meaning master.
    4's the most regular, perfect number in the world-except mathematically.
