     I wrote this simple little program to help me get the best quality DivX encodings by figuring out the maximum video bitrate that will allow the file to barely fit on one CD (700MB). For those of you unfamiliar with DivX, it's the video equivalent of an MP3. It allows you to compress an entire DVD movie to fit on one CD at nearly the same quality. The bitrate calculator I was using before displayed the bitrate in 1,024-bit kilobits, but the DivX codec uses 1,000-bit kilobits, so my finished files came out about 20MB too small, so that's why I wrote this program.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
