Divx is a hacked mpeg-4 compression scheme. The typical method is decrypt
a DVD with
some kind of DeCss program. The next step is coverting the file to Divx
with an encoder like
Flaskmpeg. The sound is coverted with an MP3 codec and the video with
the Divx codec.
The compression is around 10 or 8 to one. If you were to convert a movie
it would probably
fit easily on one cdr. Of course the DeCss code and all programs that
use it have been ruled
illegal in the courts. It has all been made a crime to link to the program.
The main reason
people claim to be doing all of this is the DVD standard only works on

Republican TV Ad is making some news for a possible subliminal TV Ad.

``The Gore prescription plan: Bureaucrats decide.''
As the announcer says ``Bureaucrats decide,'' the word ``rats,''
in large capital letters, flashes on and off the
screen just as the phrase ``Bureaucrats decide,'' appears.
I watched the video of it and it is pretty crazy.
They claim its rats as in bureaucrats, why didn't they add the c or something.
