what is described in the title happened to me with each version of this software and every movie I tried. It didn't make a difference if I used xvid or divx.
I tried several other ripping programs (e.g. DVDfab and Magic DVD Ripper).
With these that very problem did'nt occur, but they gave worse picture quality and larger output files than AOA.
I'm using rather old AMD 3000+ machine with 2 GB of Ram.
Any idea what could cause the AOA phenomenon and how to fix it?
The AOA support claimed they had never heard of this, bit I asked a friend to test it and he experienced the same.
