no need to join the vobs.the divx ripping program will pick up all the vobs when you select the first one.
you dont convert to (s)vcd then convert to divx.just convert the vobs,which are mpeg2.
gordian knot is the best program. http://www.doom9.net/
their guide isn't that good,so i'll give you a little step to step.
asuming that it's ntsc non interlaced.
make a project with dvd2avi.
video > forced film
audio > ac3 output
open the project with GK.
in the resolution tab click auto crop
hit save and encode and preview(make sure it looks good at full screen)
set the bitrates you want
hit 'save and encode' twice
the audio tab is where you tell besweet how to encode the audio.
i do the audio separate so i leave it disabled.
in the divx tab i change the bitrate of the first pass to 4000kbps and check 'write mv file'
second pass leave as is
