Rip DVD to x264 mkv. Codecs?

Hello

I want to use GK to to create a MKV with x264 codec and 5.1 or 6.1 sound and with "external subtitles" (i.e. not hardcoded) from a DVD.

I'm going to try to follow the guide:
http://www.doom9.org/index.html?/gknot-main6.htm

But I don't want to clutter my system with a lot of codecs that I won't need for my mentioned purpose above.
I'm guessing that I really don't need all the codecs from GordianKnot Codec pack (like XviD) to create a x264 mkv.

What codecs do I need?
I'm guessing that i need x264 encoder (latest revision) from http://x264.nl/
The download link from the guide seems a bit old.


I have Haali's Media splitter installed (don't know if it's needed).
I have DVDdecrypter installed.

And everything that came with Gordian Knot Rip Pack:
VirtualDubMod 1.5.10.2/2540
Nandub 1.0RC2 'lumafix & ecf-fix'
AviSynth Plugins
BeSweet 1.5b30 + azidts 0.1
DGMPGDec 1.4.3
ChapterXtractor 0.962
vStrip 0.8f css
Robot4Rip 0.5
VobSub Rip Wizard 1.0.0.6
VobSub 2.23
Avisynth 2.5.5

(don't know if all of these above is realy needed also)

So I'm wondering if anyone could help me trim down the list of what I need installed in my system in order to succeed?

This guide is obsolete and should be removed.

Depends on what frontend you want to use, a list of available frontends for x264 can be found here.

From the list it seems like StaxRip and HandBrake are the 2 most promising once.
Judging from your signature I'ed say a StaxRip guide/tutorial would probably do the job?

If you really want to use GordianKnot, all you need is the last VfW version of x264, which I believe is 5.5.1 (Google for x264-551-install.exe). The latest x264 will not work with GK.

I suggest to look for a tool using non vfw x264, AviSynth and mkvmerge.

Actually I don't care on what tools GK or not I just want to rip a DVD to a x264. I only thought about using GK cause I ran into that guide. All this is new to me.

I've decided to use StaxRip, it seems nice.
The only confusing parts is the encoder profiles and settings. But I guess I'll try my way forward
