@ sake42:

Your question makes no sense. "Better" is "the result which appears to have less annoying loss". That's completely subjective. Try both, check both - and decide for yourself.

Now don't exist official external 'Encoder settings', was replaced by internal settings selected with 'Target Playback Device' in Configuration Dialog.

The custom external 'Encoder settings' are allowed, but we can't know the parameters in your custom settings 'x264 DXVA HD extra quality' and 'x264 DXVA HD HQ'.
I have a set of external 'Encoder settings' but none with these names.

To know the differences you can copy the parameters in bottom window of Configuration Dialog when you select these 'Encoder settings'.
For instance, I have 2 DXVA external settings:

x264: DXVA-Standard Def.
program --level 3.1 --crf 20 --vbv-bufsize 14000 --vbv-maxrate 17500

x264: DXVA-High Def.
program --level 4.1 --crf 20 --vbv-bufsize 50000 --vbv-maxrate 50000

But, if I select DXVA in 'Target Playback Device', I have only:
program --level 4.1 --crf 20

Then, please, put the parameters of your external 'Encoder settings' to see the differences.

In addition to ^: The speed "preset" and the content "tuning" (and some day also the playback "device"...) options alter the default settings inside the x264 encoder. MeGUI optimizes the command line to omit options which are equal to current defaults.

Additional options in your "outdated" encoder profiles would change the behaviour in relation to previous default values based on preset and tuning; an option which may increase the efficiency in relation to one preset+tuning, may decrease the efficiency in relation to another preset+tuning, make or break compatibility to target playback devices. No chance to rate them generally, regardless of presets or tunings.

Oh, really? Show me links to such 400 MB 720p movies. Or at least full MediaInfo reports. Let's discuss their quality together.

You're posting in the wrong place. I'm sure there are places where these scene "gurus" hang out and discuss this stuff.

"Unrestricted" means that there are no compatibility restrictions considered, so the result may play only on PCs with sufficiently complete decoder software, but playback on consumer players is not certain.

The difference between a "High" and "Extra" quality template is mostly placebo: More efforts to find redundancies and similarities in the video, taking more time to calculate, but hardly giving noticably better quality at the same filesize, and making hardware player compatibility even less certain.

If you want to know the exact differences, load both XML files of these templates in a tool which highlights source code differences (e.g. windiff, Beyond Compare, etc.).

But I doubt it is worth the efforts. Templates in general are a concept ready for deprecation for the x264 encoder — because the trinity of speed "preset", content "tuning", and playback "device" options is sufficient in most cases. Less experienced users may not know all the advanced parameters good enough to take responsibility for their own changes; more experienced users may have contributed to the device option instead.

Ive a question abou the x264 BluRay 1080p 24p Profile

Why is weight=0 ? Is it incompatible with x264 and BluRay encoding?
I mean Mainconcept Reference 2.2 can use for the Bluray Profiles and my Standalone Players plays those encodes without any Problem ?

I bet its to avoid Problems with some SA Players right ?

Thank you

Where are you seeing that it's zero. This from that profile :

Code:
 <CustomEncoderOptions>--level 4.1 --bframes 3 --ref 4 --slices 4 --aud
--nal-hrd vbr --b-pyramid strict --keyint 24 --min-keyint 2 --vbv-bufsize 30000
--vbv-maxrate 40000 --weightp 1 --colorprim "bt709"
--transfer "bt709" --colormatrix "bt709"</CustomEncoderOptions>

hi
I encoded small video clip with 1pass hq and extra quality preset but i get more bitrate in Hq than extra quality. Is it okay. I thought extra quality>HQ.

How can you believe that bitrate would be trivially equal to quality? An assembly worker who finishes simply more products than another is not better if half of them are culls.

Profiles may be designed to take more or less efforts (and encoding time) for finding and removing "redundancies". But the bitrate depends on both the efficiency (ratio between necessary information and unnecessary redundancy) and the quality loss (amount of necessary information missing to recreate the original data). A more efficient encoding profile can reduce the "waste" by redundancies (with the cost of a longer encoding time) and keep enough relevant data. A less efficient profile has redundancies and needs to reduce the overall bitrate - so it loses relevant data too.

I suppose this also applies to some extent to megui profiles and settings.

Also, have a look at forum rule #12.

Do you want to encode from DV or to DV?

I doubt that creating DV video would be preferable using MeGUI. Any VfW AVI editor (like VirtualDub) and an installed DV VfW codec would be sufficient. But DV has its limits, and the codec shall know them. Regarding audio multiplexing, either DV Type 1 or 2 may be required.

But if you want to convert from DV to e.g. MP4 with AVC, then I see no reason to be concerned about any details, except that NTSC DV uses 4:1:1 chroma subsampling, that might use some filtering before encoding.

I would like to create compressed film from DV file which is much larger for storage on hd, thus wandering if there additional filters or tricks maybe to make home video looks betters (like for anime presets) ?

That won't have any relation to the used display. Only to the limits of the decoder (processor and software) used.
