Allright, I know this is off subject, but I was so amazed by the very 
high quality and the compression ratio that I thought I would let you 
know how I did it:

Get transcode at 

Replace all occurences of fccDIV3 by fccDIV4 in export_divx.cpp and 
export_divx2.cpp. Compile and install (I generated an rpm using the 
included spec file) (you need avifile 0.53.5) (you also need divxc32f.dll).

Once you get the decrypted VOBs on your disk, use for example:

$ transcode -i vobssubdir/ -a 1 -x mpeg2,ac3 -y divx2 -j 32,8 -B 4,0 -o 

That's it.

The Cube (about 90 minutes) was compressed down to 434 Mb while 
maitaining top image quality and mplayer compatibility, of course :-).

All I need know is a subtitle extraction utility for Linux...
