Sorry I am not sure what the rate controll means? You means my H.264's compression ratio?

yes how can the bitrate be defined or is it only possible to use this quality slider that looks like a option for setting a constant quantizer for the whole movie ?

I'm guessing the "Output" button is supposed to have some configuration options attached to it but nothing appears.

Also I notice it only works on non-CSS encrypted DVD sources, or so it seemed on my attempts to test it and then when I did manage to get it encoding it died part way through stating that an error had occurred and did I want to go on to the next file. Has anyone else had any luck?

Could you make VOB files selectable from hard disc directories so we don't have to burn out our DVD-ROM drives?

Can't give it anything but VOBs so I can't deinterlace anything.. The audio codec can't be changed either. Please release the DLLs so we can test it properly using VirtualDub.. The encoding program uses only 50% CPU as well, I guess it doesn't support hyperthreading.

I assume since you are charging for usage of the product that you are paying the patent holders their royalties on h.264? If not, you're violating the law. Folks like xvid get around patent fees by making only the source available for educational purposes at no charge what-so-ever.

I've tried this encoder on some sample VOB files I have and it does indeed work.

The application is of limited value as it has very few options (e.g no control over audio) and the quality of the output is not yet very good.

But it has potential, just needs work. Making it freeware would be a good move indeed!

I can't access the forum becuase China block the forum.
we will publish our SDK recently. But not free.
We can give a free very slow SDK as test demo.
we will promote a SDK with hardware accelerator.
