video.NET 0.6.0.0 (RC2)

video.NET allows various inputs and converts to MKV or MP4 and uses 'HandBrakeCLI' for these core routines.

Requirements:
Windows XP|Vista (latest SP)
Windows 7
.NET Framework 4



The look and layout may be a little unorthodox but shouldn’t be too strange for anyone that has used one of my other programs, rebox.NET.

OUTPUT OPTIONS: (right-clicking the output icon)



CONFIG OPTIONS:



User guide at the clone.AD website: http://www.clonead.co.uk/
  • FIX: Fixed start of encode crash - I'd forgot to comment something out, doh!
  • Changed the output size limit combo boxes to prevent 'upscaling' sizes from appearing - maybe confusing.
  • Added 'tooltips' for buttons - slight feedback given so you know what they do!
  • Cleaned up the 'job list' code and prevention of any weird button behaviours.
  • Added power saving suspension whilst encoding, restored to previous state after encode.
  • Changed/Added some more error routines.
  • Added another 'tune' preset for Apple devices (fast encode).
  • Added some more output file naming checks and auto-increments.
  • Again, changed|added loads of little things.
DOWNLOAD:

Hi,

I have used your avi.net for years and loved it. I then moved on to blurays and have tried /currently trying different encoders.I have downloaded your latest and look forward to additions as you make them available. Pls provide mouse overs for button. Hopefully i can provide some usefull feedback.

Just ran a 11 min test file i created that is a m2ts with ac3 audio and ran it through your program. Not so much as a hiccup and plays great on my xbox 360 . Looks great and i have a 60 in plasma to watch it on.

Richard

Glad it all works OK for you so far. I presume 'mouse overs for buttons' you mean something like some text or something popping up when you hover over? I'll see how to best implement it.

Yes thats what i was trying to say . For me personally the only other thing i would hope to see is being able to add forced subtitles in the pgs format. The xbox 360 doesn't have the abitlity to toggle subs and i dont care for hard coded subs. Other than that seems good.

Been a long-time avi.NET user myself before i switch to x264.
Hopefully this tool gets as great as avi.NET too, it certainly looks first class.

Yeh the consoles are a bit of a pain when it comes to non-hardcoded subtitles, just got to hope future updates start adding support, but I doubt it. As for the PGS format, if memory serves right I think that's something that will be supported in future, or maybe already is in the handbrake nightly builds.... can't remember.

The more i move around inside the interface the more i like it. Seems to have a natural flow to it. Another program i am putzing with that i found on this forum has the choice for using forced pgs subs,just an fyi really.

Good, I know the look/interface is a little strange at first but it is easy to get the hang of. The subs and forced subs seem to work great with DVDs, just checked the handbrake forums, Blu-ray subs are definitely planned but nothing as yet as far as I'm aware.

Talking of PGS subs, don't know much about what supports them, the problem is I only have one Blu-ray disk, and no Blu-ray drive in my PC, how lame is that ;-) Testing video.NET with a Blu-ray source I had to take an external hard drive with my disk to my brothers, rip it, bring it back on my drive, doh....... and there's no subs on the disk...... I know it's a bit of a hassle but can you add them manually after? using MKVmerge or MP4box?

i have tried ,but was having trouble with mkvmerge because they had header compression enabled by default which made the file unusable for me until i figured out what was going on and disabled it. i havent tried since, but aparently that will only give you hard subs which is a pita .


good news is drive prices are coming way down and used movies are dirt cheap.

Yeh that 'header compression' stuff was a pain for a while. I'm confused about your 'hard subs'?????? MKVmerge will not give you 'hard subs', only soft.

Crashes for me whenever I start an encode. Tried going from .mp4 to .mkv and .avi to .mkv. Also FYI it's spelled "Minimize".

Anyway how did you apply the x264 tuning? I assume you changed the x264 advanced options: what settings did you pick?

Yeh, looks like I broke the latest RC1, had to put the older beta back up.

Sorry about the RC1 crash, I had just forgot to uncomment something in the code. Should be all OK now.

Like colour and color there is a difference just to confuse the masses. I still prefer the word colour.
