This small app written in Delphi is specially for people looking for something simple without exotic filters and unnecessary settings.

Common problems:
1) AviSynth Error message or other decoding problem (avs2avi.exe/avs2yuv.exe crashes)
Uninstall all codec packs , AviSynth , Haali Media Spliter , ffdshow. XP users also must install Windows Media Player 11!
2) x264 crashes
check cpu stability in LinX (https://github.com/sanekgusev/LinX-old/releases/download/0.6.5/LinX-0.6.5.7z). check memory in memtest86




Q: What does 4.1 profile do over 4.0 and would 4.1 be better for working with HD DVD/Blu Ray discs?
A: According to wiki (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H.264#Levels) maximum bitrate in 4.0 high profile is limited to 25Mbps. 4.1 is limited to 62.5Mbps. That's all!


Changelog

v1.22.0
Added: Support for UHD Blurays
Added: Automatic HDR information retention while encoding to HEVC format
Added: Automatic HDR to SDR tonemaping during conversion to AVC format
Added: Option to limit MT usage to specific filters only
Added: Custom Script option
Fixed: Various fixes and improvements

^ nice going mate! :thanks:

will check it out as i need to do a few vids for ps3.

just noticed, u must have ffdshow? i don't really want to install ffdshow as i prefer separate codecs. any way around this?

EDIT: just tried it on a lil sample, i wasn't asked to install ffdshow, just started the process. very easy prog to use!

Very nice GUI,easy to use.
Why not making the first pass faster,like this:

x264.exe --pass 1 --bitrate 800 --stats ".stats" --bframes 3 --filter 0,0 --subme 1 --analyse none --vbv-maxrate 25000 --me dia --thread-input --progress --no-psnr --no-ssim --aq-strength 0 --aq-sensitivity 0 --output NUL "hh.avs"

@echo+

x264.exe --pass 2 --bitrate 800 --stats ".stats" --ref 3 --mixed-refs --bframes 3 --subme 5 --b-pyramid --bime --weightb --filter 0,0 --analyse all --8x8dct --vbv-maxrate 25000 --thread-input --progress --no-psnr --no-ssim --aq-strength 0 --aq-sensitivity 0 --output "hh.mkv" "hh.avs"

P.S:PSP really takes 3 bframes?

Are you sure You didn't install FFdshow? RipBot264 does simple check in registry every time at the beginning. If key [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\GNU\ffdshow] wasn't found you wouldn't be able to encode anything.

Jerry_Sm@rt:

Why not but before I change anything I would like to know what would be a disadvantage? (quality loss,file size not accurate...)


PSP really takes 3 bframes?
Yes! PSP plays movies with 3 bframes without any problems! My PSP has never had problems with any movie/anime.

Maybe some psnr loss,but I really can not tell the differences between a fast 1st pass encoded movie and a normal 1st pass encoded movie(same bitrate).If I got a faster cpu, I would not care about it.

1- Not all of us are using the MT version of Avisynth, so why do you put SetMode(2) to the script when Deinterlace is activated ?! with official version, your script fail.
2- Tdeint don't give the optimal result with mthreshL=0. In most cases, Tdeint( order=0 or 1, full=false) can produce a good picture (this is my personal opinion).
2- The PC Profile is very slow (i don't try the 2 others), can you add a "balanced" profile.

Keep the good work.

MT version will be used ONLY if available! So If you don't have MT AviSynth SetMode(2) will not be added.

Tdeint don't give the optimal result with mthreshL=0. In most cases, Tdeint( order=0 or 1, full=false) can produce a good picture (this is my personal opinion)

NO! You are wrong! Tdeint without mthreshL=0 produces ugly artifacts! BTW I made many tests with default settings and with mthreshL=0 and I did not see any difference between screenshots.

Why don't you use PS3 profile? (It uses 3 ref frames instead of 5 ). If it's still to slow use PSP profile (only 2 refs)

This is one of the prettiest apps I've ever seen! Amazing interface look.:cool:
And it just worked w/o problems first time I tried it.

Firrst off I think it really needs user-customizable profiles. I think everyone here has some favourite switches and would like to tweak an option or two...

However, I like your simple design and minimalistic look very much and would hate to see it bloated and cluttered in any way. It would be great if you could keep this simple elegant feel while adding new options.

Excellent program Atak.

Just a couple questions; Will the current mp4 muxer do ipod video? And also, is there any chance you are planning on adding some kind of batch encode option to the program in the near future?

Hyper_Thread
6th July 2007, 00:17
iPod videos needs a different encoding profile, MP4 muxer is the same for all devices.
RipBot264 is based on batch encode, look at the main window.

@Atak_Snajpera

i found "MT.dll" accidentally copied to my avisynth' plugins folder, so sorry for my displaced question about "SetMTMode".

asdfsauce
6th July 2007, 01:44
I meant like, applying settings to a bunch of files at once instead of doing them one by one and then adding them to the queue. And IIRC from the megui wiki, you need a special mp4box build for ipod video. Not such a big deal anymore since I noticed theres a tools directory where you can replace mp4box with the build of your choosing.

Atak_Snajpera
6th July 2007, 02:33
I think I will be able to implement your request after v1.1.0. At the moment I don't have time for that. Custom profiles are more important. Nevertheless your suggestion is very good because I do many encodes for PSP mainly TV-Shows like Conan o'Brein and I know how annoying it can be when you do the same steps maaaaany times.

Exotic pmp format will never be supported. Since Sony unlocked full resoluton I see no reason to not use widely recognized mp4 format.

Keep up the good work Atak, these are some nice changes. Only version 1.1.1 and it's already my favorite video encoding GUI.

Only suggestion I would make with regard to the x264 profiles would be to add an option to view/edit the command line arguements.

Oh and, if it's not too much trouble, a way to add your own resolution presets in the AVS editor.

Thanks.

Atak_Snajpera
30th July 2007, 00:17
"5.5G iPod profile" is more restricted than ordinary profile. In 5.5 you cannot use deblocking and also MacroBlocks cannot be analyzed. And what do you get instead? Resolution higher than iPod's display (640 on 320= senseless)

But the same file can play on the iPod, within QuickTime, and people who own Apple TVs. Not only that, but you can take advantage of the iPhone's higher resolution.

Atak_Snajpera
30th July 2007, 12:52
But the same file can play on the iPod, within QuickTime, and people who own Apple TVs.

But quality will be still terrible without deblocking (annoying blocks will kill your eyes:). Even 1.5Mbps (limit for iPOD) is not enough to achieve reasonable quality at 640x480 without advanced settings like Deblocking,CABAC,Trellis,many r-frames,b-frames and so on. iPOD is not PSP where you can activate almost all settings and enjoy high quality movies on high resolution display at 512kbps.

...but you can take advantage of the iPhone's higher resolution.

Quality will be alot better if you use iPhone's native resolution with regular profile.

Great app, just a few suggestions. Maybe you could add support for avs and d2v as video input. That would make things a lot more simple for converting DVD's or for dealing with unsuported formats(like wmv or ogm) that could be handed as DirectShowSources.

Atak_Snajpera
17th August 2007, 12:54

d2v is created automatically with MPEG-1,MPEG-2 (*.VOB...) by DGIndex. Converting WMV via DirectShowSource is very annoying due to problems with audio synchronization.

I didn't realize that d2v was already built in. I'll have to figure out something for wmv than.

I don't really see why it wouldn't be able to decompress as I'm able to view it in my media players with ffdshow acting as the decoder(....wait if Avisource is used ffdshow may not even come into play correct?).

Nice little app Atak_Snajpera very handy.

One thing though your PS3/Xbox360 profile isn't 100% compatible on the Xbox side of the fence you need to set AdaptDCT=0 for it to be fully compatible. It will read thumbnails, video length, anamorphic videos and be able to stream over network.

How disabling Adaptive DCT affects the PS3 I couldn't say but with the profile as it is the videos encoded will play on the Xbox 360 via local storage just minus the the things I listed above.

My answer is no! d2v file is used for decoding in preview. Then if file is indexed and audio is demuxed I can calculate values for filesize.

automatical crop and resize to 352x288...

After you add a video just click on the avisynth button. There are drop down options for deinterlacing and resizing on the left and a copy of your actual script on the right. It looks like it is greyed out but you can write your own lines into it.

Hey, I really like this program you've made, but I was wondering why you add a border of 2 pixels at the bottom when resizing to any of the PSP resolutions? Also, perhaps you could add a way to save or preserve your joblist until you want to manually remove them yourself? And some of my mpeg2 files (.mpg, .ts) aren't loading properly (Something about can't load it in -HIDE mode?), and some avi's as well but it's just the info.txt error that some others have been getting, though these avi's load fine on my friend's computer. And for the new version, the "-1.25" parameter in TextSub just makes my subs out of sync.

DVD video is generally Top Field First. DV video from camcorders is almost always Bottom Field First.

Hey, I really like this program you've made, but I was wondering why you add a border of 2 pixels at the bottom when resizing to any of the PSP resolutions?

PSP always removes 2 bottom lines and then centers picture on the screen. Try to replace original Addborders with this AddBorders(0,0,0,2,255). You will see blue lines at the bottom but they are not visible on PSP.

And for the new version, the "-1.25" parameter in TextSub just makes my subs out of sync.

Try to change default 25 value to 23.976 or 29.97

and some avi's as well but it's just the info.txt error that some others have been getting, though these avi's load fine on my friend's computer

I know that issue from the begining. Sometimes Windows does not allow to write info.txt. Try to restart your PC and do not open RipBot264temp directory. Also make sure your path and filenames do not contain national characters like ą,ż,ź,ń, and so on

Good advice for people encoding TS files. I highly recommend to scan stream for errors before encoding. You can use Transport Stream Packet Editor (TSPE). If you want to demux audio use xport. BTW Annoying problem with missing file info.txt has been fixed finally :)

One other small suggestion.

After I set a profile, I set autocrop, then I want to set the width. I either want 320 for an ipod or 640 for my computer; but I never know the height.

On avi.net you just set the width and the height is calculated for you automatically. Can you do the same thing? The author of avi.net (the Scientist) is on this thread, maybe he can tell you how he did it.

I think it's time to start use real software. Quicktime is a peace of ...

Of course, I rather use MPC or VLC :) But I wanted something that would work with iTunes on my PC and on my Mac =) All tests I have done with megui, ripbot264 and other apps has been crappy at best. It's been either messed up brightness, too low quality or a file format that can't be played on anything except Windows... And from what I have seen, a Quicktime compliant file seems to be the only common denominator on PC, Mac and iPhone/iPod Touch. Since I want to be able to use all these devices to playback the movie with GOOD quality, without getting too large files (1.5GB for a regular movie).

But if you guys got any good recommendations for me then please teach me :) What I want to be able to do with the movie is preferrably:

- Playback on Mac (using iTunes and Frontrow)
- Playback on PC (using Media Center and/or iTunes)
- Playback on iPod Touch

Getting stuff to work on Media Center is the easiest part, since Windows is so forgiving with it's options to accept codecs. Quicktime won't even do divx/xvid, and that's the only option for a decent media center front end on the Mac (Frontrow, which uses iTunes, which uses Quicktime).

The alternative is to keep all DVD:s in their original format (4,7-9.4GB MPEG2), and that's a whole waste of space when there are much better codecs out there... and this still would make the Mac a very useless moviebox :)

So if you got any ideas...

First, install Perian (http://perian.org/), then use quicktime to make a shortcut to the video you want to use in itunes (if itunes can't already open it), then import the shortcut. This droplet (http://dettmer.maclab.org/movie2itunes.html) will make the process of creating the shortcuts easier.

NOTE: itunes can import and play all sorts of videos (avi, mkv with softsubs, and probably wmv and ogm too) in this way, but they won't necessarily play on your ipod.

Secondly, when I start the project, it looks as if the audio encodes properly, but the video doesn't encode at all, and no video is saved anywhere. I've tried to run both as a user and an admin.

I really don't understand why this program doesn't work at all for me. First, auto-crop doesn't generate the log, so the app complains it can't find the log. Secondly, no video is encoded at all - only the audio encodes. And, no final product shows up.

Is there a log of some sort I can send to troubleshoot?

In the "job1" folder there are 4 *.cmd files, 3 *.avs files, 1 *.ini file, and info.txt file. In the Ripbot264temp folder, there are no files. According to the .cmd files, there should be a video file and an audio file to be muxed, correct?

OK, here is the result from pass 1. As you can see, there are 2 errors - not sure what the first means, but the second claims it cannot open the job1.avs when it's in the same folder.

http://img222.imageshack.us/img222/1732/ripbotyt6.th.jpg (http://img222.imageshack.us/my.php?image=ripbotyt6.jpg)


Here is the File Info when the job1.avs is loaded into VirtualDubMod. But, in order to do that, I had to remove the "framecount= " from the directshowsource line in the avs file, otherwise the avs file wouldn't load in VDM.

http://img337.imageshack.us/img337/9616/aviinfody4.th.jpg (http://img337.imageshack.us/my.php?image=aviinfody4.jpg)

I thought that perhaps the original video was not in YV12, but apparently it is. Any other suggestions?

EDIT: OK, I determined what the main problem is: Everything works fine if I edit the job1.avs file by removing the framecount in the directshowsource line just before I start the encode. Why would my version not like to see the framecount in there?

I've tried several other video samples, and the autocrop fails to generate a log, and Ripbot continues to complain it can't find one. Does this only work with mpeg2 files input, or should autocrop work with any file? I also wonder if it has to do with the framecount issue above as well.

Atak_Snajpera
28th September 2007, 16:44

Yes! Framecount is also added in script for autocrop. Autocrop works with any file if video can be decoded. Did you try with Avi? Try to remove all codecs and then install FFDshow + Haali Media Splitter. Do not install Xvid!

kikker
28th September 2007, 17:02
Well, the info for the trailer I've uploaded is in the jpg of my previous post. It's 24 fps.

I have both MKV and MP4 samples, and in each case, the framecount appears in the directshowsource line of the avs file. Ripbot simply doesn't work with that in there, and I must remove it before each encode. Here's a sample Matrix mkv trailer.

OK, thanks for the reply.

The vid I uploaded wasn't encoded by me. Can you tell me why it would matter which encoder was used anyway? If there is a DS filter to decode the input, and the avs can be read and played by any player, then why would it matter?

The only problem here is the framecount thing in the avs file. The problem is NOT that the number is inaccurate, because the number reported is exactly what is reported by VDM. The problem is simply that it's there, and when I remove the "framecount= ", it works fine. I guess the whole autocrop is related to that too?

All the other vids I've tried result in the same problem (autocrop and framecount).

I have used MeGUI, Staxrip, AutoMKV with no problems, so I'm hoping your svelte app can work for me too. :)

Right. We're both using ffdshow. But, you have no problems with that "framecount= " in the avs, and I do. I have no idea why that is, but it should be relatively simple to fix. And, hopefully, that would also sure the autocrop problem I have as well.

Try this on for size. If you have VirtualDubMod, try playing the job1.avs file created by Ripbot. VDM won't play the file either with the "framecount= " thing in there and tells me to remove it. After removing, the avs file plays just fine.

28th September 2007, 19:43
Here is something else I've found. Everything in Ripbot works on Vista when using a limited user account except MP4box. This is not an issue on XP computers - only Vista as a non-admin.

The reason is quite simple, and I found it in this post. If you run the mp4box (or ripbot) as a user in Vista, mp4box will lose/delete your entire video (*.264) encode and not mux it.

There are 2 fixes. Either you can run as an admin, or the author of ripbot can add a -tmp parameter to the mp4box to specifiy a directory that the user has write access to. Apparently, in Vista, that temp directory is by default at the root of the drive, and this is why mp4box does not work on Vista as a limited user.

Couple of observations/suggestions:


For some reason, RipBot264 will close all console windows if you abort an encode (even console windows opened outside of RipBot264). This is kind of annoying, because I usually keep 3-4 consoles open at a time. :P
Audio with a 24-bit sample size isn't supported (at least by the encoder). I modified the AVS audio script to change the sample size to 16-bit and that worked fine. =) But if it's possible to detect this and modify the automatically generated script accordingly, that'd be good.
For failed encodes (like the case above where 24-bit audio caused the audio encode step to fail) please keep the encoded video file instead of deleting it. I don't like losing a couple of hours of work if I can help it. :P
For what its worth, I've been using 1.5.1, so maybe these things are fixed/addressed in the newer version, but I thought I'd mention them. At any rate, cool tool, like that its written in Delphi too. =)

I am sorry to dive right in a middle of a discussion, but I am a bit stuck with a problem:

No matter what DVD source i try to encode (I decoded the source with DVD Decrypter) all audio options I get with any profile is a 2.0 profile. 2.0 OGG Vorbis 64kbit-128kbit and 2.0 CT AAC 64kbit-128kbit. No 5.1 or any other (except for direct stream copy). It works on my other computer, but not on my laptop. I use the newest Ripbot264 (1.6.3) along with the ffdshow from sourceforge. Is it perhaps some issue with Vista? I can't get a grip on the problem...

I suppose you have selected 2 channels in FFDShow audio mixer...

In v1.6.4 NicAudio is used in getinfo.avs instead of DirectShowSource so everything should be fine now.

I found an another bug. I tried to encode an m2ts file, called 'Logo.m2ts'. The output was a little strange, because it automatically renamed it 'ogo..mkv'. But thats not the problem.

The problem is that when the audio/video decoding ends, the muxing part doesnt do a thing. It says everything fine, but there isn't any .mkv at the end.

I dont know if it helps, but I uploaded the logo.m2ts file zipped, it is 23 mb, a simple logo ripped from a bluray source with 1 audio and 1 video stream.

There is something wrong with audio. AC3 has HUGE delay and It cannot be decoded by FFDShow?!?! When NicAC3Source is used I don't hear anything during preview plus conversion takes to much time. However m2ts plays fine in MPC and audio is also correctly decoded. It must be a bug in DGIndex. I will inform neuron about that.

just wanted to stop by and say thanks. i've tried many PS3 encoders and so far, i'm liking your tool Atak_Snajpera (mind you i've only tried 1 video so far). i've tried PS3 video 9 by redkawa, SUPER, PS3 video converter and i was either not impressed with the quality of these or they lacked options. i've been using meGUI with a PS3 profile and it has never let me down. i'm satisfied with both the quality and options in your tool and its very simple to use. from the looks of it, it uses both cores on my dual core CPU too... am i correct in my assumption?

it depends, ou say mp4 is that for xbox or ps3 or similar? then your stuck for the profile for that.

if its general PC playback use [level 5.1] HQ default

in the bottom right you can tick lock size and im thinking 4480 is dvd-r size, this will then automatically set the bitrate for you.

should be able to get extremely good quality from a DVD to 264 using 4gb, assuming its not weirdly long or anything.

resize to SD of course. let us know if you have any luck.

Thanks for fixing the console window closing issue, now a couple more observations/requests. =)

The "Normalize" option seems to turn itself back on when you change certain settings. Also, even with normalizing off, when I first start a conversion, it says "Normalizing" in the status area briefly. When using the PSP profile, it would be nice if resizing was automatically set to 480x272. I'm not certain on this, but doesn't the PSP support 720x480 video? I know the actual screen is limited to 480x272, but when using the TV out it would be nice to have the higher resolution. Maybe add this to the list of resizing options? A method for boosting the loudness of audio by a specific decibel amount would be cool. Normalizing doesn't seem to work as well as I'd hoped on DVD conversions (still seems too quiet via the PSP speakers; headphones sound better though). A way to pause encoding would be nice.
Thanks for your help. =)

Ahhh ! Very nice tool ! Finally a clean gui without all the unnecessary bullshit.

Could you please add the following features:

1. Nero aac audio (megui & automkv support it), with all the profiles (I need ABR), escecially the "auto" profile which lets nero chose the best compression (LC,HE) for a given bitrate

2. I see you already use bepipe. This will allow 2 pass abr AAC encoding with nero (needed for low bitrates).

To do 2 pass encoding, nero needs a wave file as imput. So with bepipe you can save a temporary wave file, and then encode it with nero in 2 passes abr.

This small nero gui already does this, source is available:
http://www.imcold.evilhosting.org/progs/sng/

3. Modify the source selection gui part to behave like nero recode. This way, you can chose to fit the output to a specified size (i.ex DVD5) and then when you add files, their bitrate will automatically be adjusted to match the media.


If you could add these 3 features, Ripbot would be the ultimate gui for me.

Both encoders provide almost the same quality. Some people even claim that HE is better in CT than in Nero. So called "Auto" is already available in RipBot264 :) 64 kbps is always encoded in HE. Everything above is encoded in LC. Nero "Auto" works exactly in the same way. Besides I'm not allowed to distribute Nero encoder along with my app.

If you select "Lock Size" video bitrate will be adjusted according to output size and audio bitrate/size.

The problem is that, according to ripbot, ct only does CBR. ABR is better (especially for movies as there are periods in a movie where there is no or less sound) and nero does ABR.

And what about 2 pass aac encoding (nero is the only encoder currently doing this)? Is this something you might add ?


Besides I'm not allowed to distribute Nero encoder along with my app.


No problem, we can copy the file to ripbot's directory.


If you select "Lock Size" video bitrate will be adjusted according to output size and audio bitrate/size.

Yes, I know. But this is only for one file.

A system like nero recode allows to lock the size like you do, but then you can add more than 1 source file and all of the files' bitrates will be adjusted automatically (the total available bitrate is divided by the files, but you can also adjust it manually for each file within the available max bitrate).

Of course we can do all of the calculations manually and then add each file into the queue with that calculated bitrate.... but the purpose of a gui is to make things easier, isn't it ? ;)

Let's say we have 10 episodes. Each episode will require 448 MB to fit on DVD. Is that so hard to click "Lock Size" and then enter calculated value ?

And what about 2 pass aac encoding (nero is the only encoder currently doing this)? Is this something you might add ?

2-pass for audio is simply waste of time (decoding to 6ch wav plus 2-passes for encoding). Besides Quality Mode in Nero gives better results than 2-pass.

Last word. I'm very happy with CT-AAC quality and I am not going to replace it. Sorry.

You forget the movies' length. One episode can be 50 minutes, another can be 25 minutes, another 1h30, another 35 minutes...

Giving to each the same size is the wrong way to go about it. What you need to do is give them the same bitrate.


2-pass for audio is simply waste of time (decoding to 6ch wav plus 2-passes for encoding). Besides Quality Mode in Nero gives better results than 2-pass.

Saving to wave takes 30 seconds. 1 pass encoding takes 1 minute, so 2 passes will take 2 minutes...

Compare this to encoding the movie, which in this example can take 45 minutes.... So with 2 pass audio it will be 47min30 instead of 46 minutes...

I don't see any waste of time here ?

Regarding quality mode vs 2 pass abr: when you want to put the maximum on a disc (-> lock size), you don't want quality mode; you want to aim for a bitrate and so you want average bitrate.


Last word. I'm very happy with CT-AAC quality and I am not going to replace it. Sorry.

Who said you need to replace it ?

Anyway, I see you are missing my point completely. Good luck with your tool.

Feature request: Opening of video files that do not contain audio streams (in my case it was a DivX 5.2.1 AVI).

Thanks!Did some looking around, another nice feature once it will even open non-audio files is to then create a "dummy" blank WAV of the same length of the video and use that for the audio if external audio is not specified. The PSP needs an audio stream to play video, and it cuts the whole thing once either stream ends. Thanks!

I've been using AutoGK for a couple of years to create xvids from my ripped dvds. I want to try x.264 encodes but I'm not sure what I need to do.
I've ripped a dvd in file mode & in Ripbot, I select the first vob file. Will ripbot select the subsequent vobs? I see that once it's demuxed & indexed the audio, the duration is the length of the first vob. Should I rip in IFO mode instead?
Do I need to demux them into an mpeg file first? Is there freeware to do this?
Sorry if the questions are pretty basic, but like I said, I've been using AutoGK & it doesn't require much thinking.

So, RipBot 'knows' the real order, like 1-2-3-4, or it will code like 4, 1, 2 and 3?

I have been using Ripbot for some time for encoding to PSP and it has been working great. Recently, I bought an iPhone (which unfortunately doesn't work with Floola), and have ran into issue with the audio encoding. iTunes fails silently during import and QuickTime gives an error -2041.

http://forum.doom9.org/attachment.php?attachmentid=7793&stc=1&d=1195906672

If I extract the audio manually and transcode it using iTunes and then remux it back using mp4box, it works great.

Is there is way to make the iPhone profile create an audio track that can be directly imported via iTunes?

@Atak_Snajpera
I really like your gui ,very easy to use for batch encoding.

It would be better if u add surport for nero aac encoder

and make the audio profile editable(like the video part) .

Why do you guys like nero encoder so much? I made many quality test using Sennheiser headphones and I didn't hear any differences.

and make the audio profile editable(like the video part)

Why? What is missing?

I used for the first time this program today. Some things regarding iPhone profile as an example when choosing [ level 3.0 ] iPOD Touch & iPhone:
- mkv output to be greyed
- the audio must to stay under "2.0 AAC LC 128kbps" and no other option to be available. Best is to be autoset as "2.0 AAC LC 96kbps" as default.
- the video must to stay under 640x480 and no other option to be available for resize and max. bitrate 1500 kbps.

Request: when adding subtitles to be possible to add black bars, keeping correct aspect ratio and the subtitles to be placed at the bottom of the video. The reason is because the display is 4:3 and if encoding some 16:9 movie with subtitles the player will add black bars and the subtitles will be not very readable if them are in the video as opposed to be on the black bars. Also for srt subtitles the font, size cannot be choosed by the users and I consider for iPhone the default font is too small. User needs to learn how to make better ssa subtitles. I don't know if you can add an option for font, size, position of subtitles but I hope to add something simple when adding subtitles like: WideScreen (16:9) or LetterBoxed (16:9 in a 4:3 frame with black borders).

enjoy,

Coz nero's faster.

For example, people may need 48 kbps he+ps aac for some animation title or high bitrate 5.1 aac...

I don't think so :)
My system: Core 2 Duo@2.8Ghz
conversion 1h:52m mp3 to 128 kbps CT-AAC took 2m:30s / ND-AAC SSE took 4m:10s


For example, people may need 48 kbps he+ps aac for some animation title

HE+parametric stereo sucks!

or high bitrate 5.1 aac...
320 kbps is a maximum for 6 channels. There is nothing above that.

OK, here are two stupid questions for you....:

1: How do I make ripbot264 accept my DTS-encoded x264-streams? When I open up a .mkv-file that has its audio encoded with DTS i get a "Audio properties returned by AviSynth are incorrect" error, displaying Audiorate, AudioChannels and AudioLength to 0. It's something with my codecs, but what? What should I use? I can playback the files with audio properly, but ripbot264 won't swallow it.

2: AC3 encoded x264-streams show up in ripbot264 as 2 channels only. Even if I know they are 6 channels they only show 2. With MPEG2's (DVD source) it works with 6 chan.Trying to convert 1080/720p streams into lower resolution.

I prolly missed something quite obvious, but I can't see the solution... any ideas?

Maybe I jump to that speed conclusion too hurry,I'll do some more test myself.

Lowrate heaacv2 may sound bad for u , but it's popular in tv animation archive.

I know 256k is good for 5.1 lc aac,but there's no 5.1 audio profile now in your gui.

So maybe u could think about split audio option to 3 part :encoder vorbis/lcaac/heaac/heaacv2;channels 2.0/5.1 ;bitrate xxx.Or simply add more audio profiles.

In 1.6.8 mp4 container is selected for default instead of mkv. However mkv won't be disabled along with other options because I prefer freedom of choice.

Sometime ago I recorded x-men 3 with DTS sound and it works well with GUI. Do you have latest FFDshow , Haali Media Splitter and stable AviSynth?

Resetting FFDshow settings fixed both channel problem and DTS problem. Thanks!

The net has more stuff than illegal movies you know... The things I am trying to convert are high quality trailers and HDTV samples. 1080 into 720. 1080/720 into 480 and so on.

Anyway, thanks for the help! This solved a lot of time (and created a lot more work, since I have to re-encode a LOT of samples into 5.1 audio.... =) )

To iPhone. The iPhone screen is small. To be readable, the subtitle need to be as large as possible and if is on the black bars is more visible.
Widescreen (Textsub with .srt subtitle) - 16:9 640x272 max. supported by iPhone:

http://img156.imageshack.us/img156/1742/169iphonepc2.th.jpg (http://img156.imageshack.us/my.php?image=169iphonepc2.jpg)


Leterboxed (Textsub with .ssa subtitle) - 4:3 640x480 max. supported by iPhone:

http://img514.imageshack.us/img514/7156/43iphoneyh0.th.jpg (http://img514.imageshack.us/my.php?image=43iphoneyh0.jpg)

I don't know if anybody can read movies subtitles from their iPod/iPhone if Textsub with srt is used, because with srt is not possible to set the font properties.

Some comparison regarding screen size and subtitles:

Regarding MP4, MKV and other standards: I think you made the program for Average Joe. He wants to click one button and after some time to have the movie how was in his mind.
But: if he will select the (for example) iPhone profile and: the MKV (by mistake), or unsupported bitrate (higher than 1500kbps), or unsupported resolution (more than 640), or unsupported audio (more than 2.0 LC), after many hours of encoding he will have an unplayable result. Only because he had options that broken the standards.

I wrote all this things thinking at Average Joe, and because I like your program and I want to help you improving it in the right way. You are free to listen me or not.

Awesome program, thanks :) So simple - but it does exactly what is needed. One little minor thing that could be improved is some sort of batch mode (add lots of files that use the same settings), or at least make it remember all the settings, atm it remembers bitrate, but doesn't remember the resolution. So I have to go to properties, and change resolution everytime.

What settings are people using on their PSPs? I'm using 1024kbps / 25fps, and sometimes I end up getting a lot of red ghosting. Anyway to reduce this?

According to tech spec iPhone's native resolution is 480x320 (1.5:1) so I suggest to use PSP resolution (Black bars are added automatically).

What settings are people using on their PSPs? I'm using 1024kbps / 25fps, and sometimes I end up getting a lot of red ghosting. Anyway to reduce this?

I use 384 kbps if I want to save space and still have good quality. If I don't care about size I use CQ@24 (~768kbps)

Ghosting cannot be reduced because it's hardware problem (LCD has very slow response time)

When I first start to execute a job I get a error dialog for bepipe that says "Application has generated an exception that could not be handled".

Any ideas on what could be wrong?

You didn't provide enough information about input file. Without that I cannot help. Did this happen with all files?
