Re: codec help
CCCP doesn't come with an encoder. Those are for playback.
Vemode is another good program for video encoding. You can also use VLC and export the video stream as another video type.
If you are doing this for DVDs, you would need to first rip the DVD then you would re-encode it. It's a 2 step process. Handbrake would work after you rip the DVD.
