Getting the latest x264

DO NOT USE this thread for discussions about x264. Use the x264 development thread or start a new one.

Windows builds:

x264 Changelog:
See the official online Git changelog for latest information: https://code.videolan.org/videolan/x264/commits/master
Changelog by revision can be found here: http://komisar.gin.by/old/2851/x264_changelog.txt


AVC2AVI Revision 594 (including GUI ver. 1.2)
AVC2AVI is a tool for muxing raw h.264 streams into avi container. AVC2AVI GUI requires .NET framework 2.0


x264 VFW (no longer officially supported - mantained by third party developers):

(at your own risk)

Use LAV Filters for x264 playback in DirectShow-based players:
Information and download: https://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=156191
or use MPC-HC with built-in LAV Filters: https://mpc-hc.org/

Use the latest Haali Media Splitter for MP4 and MKV files: http://haali.cs.msu.ru/mkv/

GUIs for CLI version:
Check this sticky: http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=129748

What is x264: x264 is a free software library and application for encoding video streams into the H.264/MPEG-4 AVC compression format, and is released under the terms of the GNU GPL.
Website: http://www.videolan.org/x264.html
H264/AVC info: http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=96059

x264 limitations: "x264 doesn't yet support the error-resilience features of baseline and extended profile, not the alternative colorspaces of high profile.
There are a few other features not supported..."

This is not an official x264 build and may not work at all, destroy all the data on your hard drive or make your house or your dog explode (i doubt it can, though...). I'm not responsible for anything that could happen - use it at your own risk.
Those builds are made for TESTING PURPOUSE ONLY.

Notes about the CLI version: Mencoder provides another way to use x264 with a commandline interface.
Mencoder builds by sherpya can be found here: http://oss.netfarm.it/mplayer-win32.php
Mplayer/Mencoder official website: http://www.mplayerhq.hu/

Other info:
Some x264 information: http://komisar.gin.by/x264info.html
x264 GIT repository (web browser): http://git.videolan.org/?p=x264.git;a=summary

Playback: MPlayer or VLC can play back x264 encoded movies.
Links to Mplayer/Mencoder are provided above and it's available for both Linux and Windows.
VLC is also a multi-platform media player and can be found here: http://www.videolan.org/
However the most convenient way to play back x264 video in Windows is LAV Filters + your_favourite_directshow_enabled_media_player (MPC-HC, etc).
If you want to edit a x264 encode with VirtualDub you should manually enable the H.264 Codec in the ffdshow's "VFW codec configuration" (decoder tab) and ensure there aren't other VFW codecs trying to decode h.264 however it's preferable to use AVIDemux.
The official AVIDemux website is: http://fixounet.free.fr/avidemux/
