Not a fan of using a GUI for your encoding? Or like to work strictly with command line prompts and terminals? Well, this post is for you. Starting with DivX 10.1.1 we added Command Line support to DivX Engine, the same engine that powers DivX Converter for media content transcoding.
Available on Windows and Mac, DivXEngine can be used for any existing profiles or presets, including HEVC.
Using DivXEngineOn Windows: locate DivXEngine.exe in “C:\Program Files (x86)\DivX\DivX Transcode Engine”
On Mac: locate DivXEngine.exe in “/Library/Application Support/DivX/DivXEngineBundle.bundle/Contents/MacOS”
Note: Converter’s CLI, same as the GUI, will always output streams in a container (.avi, .mkv, .mp4). If you are looking to output raw HEVC bitstreams, be sure to check out our DivX HEVC Community Encoder, which outputs bitstreams. Raw bitstreams can be used with Converter or other mux tools such as MKVToolnix.
Transcoding to HEVC 4K profile:
DivXEngine.exe -i "c:\testclips\test_avc.mkv" -o "c:\testclips\test_hevc.mkv" -p hevc4K
- Transcoding DVD to PLUS HD profile:
DivXEngine.exe -i "c:\DVD\VIDEO_TS\VTS_01_0.IFO" -o " c:\testclips\VTS_01_0.mkv" -p phd
Or you also can use one of the VOB files. In any case if IFO file presented all DVD will be transcoded.
DivXEngine.exe -i "c:\DVD\VIDEO_TS\VTS_01_1.VOB" -o " c:\testclips\VTS_01_0.mkv" -p phd
Burn DVD subtitles in Home Theater profile:
DivXEngine.exe -i "c:\DVD\VIDEO_TS\VTS_01_1.IFO" -o "c:\testclips\VTS_01_0.divx" -p ht –b
Transcoding DVD with subtitles in Home Theater profile:
