Are there any reasons why this isn't implemented?
Because we don't use mencoder for the main video encoding scenarios? mencoder as primary encoder was dropped for various good reasons that have all been publicly stated (there even was some discussion about it in this very forum).

There's an avisynth plugin called twriteavi that can write a huffyuv avi file while the first pass is being done. With some clever scripting it's possible to use the exact same script for first and second passes, but the second pass actually uses the huffyuv avi written during the first pass as the source. It's not something I'd recommend be added to MeGUI (too many things to go wrong), but it is a possibility for people who want speed and know how to manually write scripts.

I'm quite sure your solution is the better solution. I don't ask to change the way Aspect Ratio is implemented. Perhapy only a small option/flag like "add QT-compatible AR information". You probably think that nobody should use QT, but you cannot choose a different player if you want to use FrontRow (Apples Media Center, Apple TV...). AFAIK you don't need to change the way you set the AR, you only have to add an extra atom to the MP4 container, which doesn't bother other players. Currently only Quicktime Pro and Hanbrake SVN support that. Because I like MeGUI a lot more, I'd like to use it for encoding Apple-compatible, anamorphic videos.

Can you tell me if "adding an atom to the mp4 container" is implemented in MeGUI itself or mp4box? Perhaps I could try to write a patch and you could decide on that?

megui doesn't do anything on a container level (or encoding level for that matter).. it's strictly a control application (well, almost strictly, it does some audio decoding via avisynth and pipes that data to audio encoders).

my megui doesnt update any more, it just saying "There are 0 files that can be updated". its been like this for ~1 month now (?) and even continues after I reinstalled windows & megui completely. I dont believe there would be nothing to update since that long time e.g. x264 version is from 635, while 655 seems to be the latest right now, or dgindex still bein 1.48 etc.

the 2 update servers in the update list I have are the 2 standard ones.

Check has created an alternate unofficial update site that's described in this post. It might be just what you're looking for.

Bug bash:
Code:
0.2.4.1040
Commit by berrinam:
    - Small new feature: AutoEncode has better filesize choosers.
        (addresses 1654588)
    - If the bitrate calculator doesn't contain an appropriate framerate, one is added
        (fixes 1676934, includes code from there)
    - Removed the unused avsConfigurationDialog.cs
    - Fixed 1652664 (no commandline previews)
    - Fixed 1653755 (Muxer reports audio in wrong notation)
    - Fixed 1679572 (Turbo Mode in LMP4 multipass sometimes not selectable)
    - Fixed 1696067 (Video encoding doesn't use the specified filename)
        (a duplicate of 1653186: Video Output not passed to commandline)
    - Fixed 1688789 (One Click Encoder Crashes with Automatic Deinterlace checked)
    - Fixed 1675408 (mkvmerge split option incorrect)
    - Fixed 1666878 (Vobsubber changing output doesn't work)
    - Fixed 1659596 (Load DLL in Avisynth configuration dialog)
    - Fixed 1652312 (xvid b-frames default wrong)
The filesize displays meant some biggish internal changes, so there may be some new bugs in displaying and calculating filesizes.

Thanks for the cosmetic fixes! I've been waiting for those. Is there any chance that they'll be a feature that'll save the position of the tab things in the queue window? Like, the size in pixels would be saved to a file and read when you started up meGUI. I like to have them just right so that it fits nicely into the window.

@Raere: it's a possibility. Please don't ask for it here, though, but on the SourceForge bug tracker. See my signature

Since latest update (core 0.2.4.1041) Autoupdate button doesn't work anymore. I click but nothing happends!

Video Input: avs
Video output: mp4 (x264)

Audio input: avi (mp3)
Audio output: mp4 (aac)

I'm used to work with these settings and I've done tons of encodings, but now autoencode button is died.

Can anyone check, please?
Thanks
-----------------------
update: rolled back to 0.2.4.1039 and everything is ok.
-----------------------
update 2: version 1041 works using menu for autoencode
