@Underground78: free.fr do nasty bandwidth shaping, so anyone that isn't a "Free" subscriber will get a b0rked download rate. I would have uploaded it to my own free.fr webspace if it weren't for that. (but it'll still be faster than ys168.com I guess ^^)

@snow_xmas : mirroring is just the fact of copying a file to another location than it's original location, just in case the original location goes down. Usually it's done via daily mirroring scripts, but sometimes (like here) users do it manually.

Although it is different from the CLI. But most people are use to the bigger qualty index number, the higher quality of the object file. In CLI, the quality index number 0 can make a highest quality. I feel that it is too different from most people's habit. So I change it. And the number must be "int", "float" can't be set. so I set the max to 640.

So you actually believe a 0 to 640 scale to be more useable ? If at least it were 0 to 100 I would have understood, but I wonder how we are meant to "guess" what the 0 to 640 stands for. What if I want a CRF 25 encode ? What "value" of yours should I set ? Dude, people on Doom9 encode night and day (rofl), and it's a habit for everyone to have 0 being good quality, and 51 (32 for MPEG4-ASP) to be bad quality. Inventing something "new" and "better" is by nature going against people's habits. Go figure ...I must have missed something again

But in MeGUI the quality index number can be set from 0.1 to 64. not 100%.Convert it to 100% will make some loss.

I give you a formula.

The quality index number in vfw is "vfw".
The quality index number in CLI is "cli".
vfw=(64.1-cli)*10
cli=(641-vfw)/10

So you can convert the number with the formula.And I will change it to that 0 make a highest quality.

0-64 is a MeGUI bug. Thanks for catching that, btw. It should be 0-51, because it corresponds exactly with the x264 option and anything over 51 will be read as 51.

I don't speak chinese language, snow_xmas, so I can't do anything on your site. Please provide direct download link to rev 655.

Thanks.

Jesus Christ, ask for a brain for next christmas will 'ya ? ... making an effort never hurts you know ...

Just in case, you need to open the address in IE, not in FF, otherwise you get a black page probably saying something like "You must use IE 5.0 or later". I admit it took me some minutes to figure that out ...

Here you go, mirror updated with r655 : http://xeoteam.info/x264vfw/

Hi guys, I'm learning to encode AVI with X264vfw since I often record volleyball matches from TV with a DVD-Recorder. Could you guys give me some suggestions of the settings as to get better quallity for a match?

Thanks in advance!

First, welcome to the doom9 forums

Second, have you noticed the thread title ? "The x264 guide". The first post even links to a guide related specifically to x264vfw (written by DeathTheSheep himself, the original poster). I think it should be enough to get your started =)

Here, a direct link, just for you :http://gabextreme.googlepages.com/De...VfW_guide.html

Good luck and have fun reading

You won't be able to register with free.fr since they require you to enter a valid postal address to send you your login & password (in france of course ^^').

Try geocities over at yahoo : http://geocities.yahoo.com/ps/learn2...rks4_Free.html

I'm not too sure if it's a good alternative or what, but it's free (with ads).

Also, the ftp account I offered you is still open ... (that's where I'm mirroring your stuff right now ), but I'd understand if you wanted total control over your webspace

Thanks for the info, DarkZell666. Certainly I've read that thread and I've tried a couple of times. I asked for some suggestions since I thought the settings might be a little different to convert a match than a normal DVD-film.

Well, sports in general tend to be very shaky and action-packed, which is naturally hard to compress if you consider how codecs work. If you tried encoding your match at 800kbps hoping for a miracle, you most probably ended up disappointed.

The best you can do is do some extra filtering with avisynth, downsize a bit more if you didn't already, and not expect low bitrates to look good for such a high-motion source.

Using "constant quality" mode (also known as CRF) is your friend if you can't get good-looking results. Use crf 18 (180 in snow_xmas's vfw build) to give yourself an idea of the bitrate needed to get a good picture quality. If you really need a smaller filesize, it's your job to decide wether you'll downsize, just turn the bitrate 10% lower and re-do a second pass, or live with the bigger filesize

You can make support matrices? For example high detailed elaboration?
