request: fprofiled r968 (generic) + psy-rdo/psy-trellis + hrd & pulldown + new bframe decision (optional)
I am sorry you don't understand me.
The whole reason for NOT compiling with patches anymore is because the patches are no longer changing and are tested more than enough. It's up to the developers now to add it to GIT or drop it. Or possible resume on a later day.
If it's final: add to GIT, if it's not ready, put it on ice or start developing. If the same happens to psy_rdo as what happened to AQ, i am not going to wait and spend wasted time (auto compiling is a lot less time consuming) on compiling builds which are not "stable/signed by pengvado"!

Use skystrife's builds for now

As for CoreAVC i was just pointing out CoreAVC has a problem, and not the x264 patches.... so prepare it for GIT or put it on ice.

And if more tests are needed, all anyone has to do is shout and tons of testers ready!

From what bobor said, I don't get the impression that he dropped patch support to fix coreavc compatibility, I think he removed patches because he believes them ready for commit and thus not worth extra effort on part of builders.

I agree for psy_rdo and hdr patches. But new bframes still needs work. It is not linear time currently, aku promised to make it so by reusing motion vectors (or something), but there have been no patch updates for that. So bframe is still under development (I presume). The other 2 had no changes for a long time and only need updating because git keeps changing.

Its good to see that the new b-frame decision is added as an option with 969, but just curious whether it will always be available an option or will it be the default once it is fully optimised? (it would be easy to set the default to 2 and have 1 as the original as is at the moment if that does every happen)!

I am quite sure the best speed/quality trade off will be set as default, and that ofcourse is always the goal of the x264 devs.
So when its fast enough, it will replace the current b-frame methods.... maybe the old will be an option, maybe it will disappear.

In r969, was the whole b-frame patch (the latest one anyway) applied or are there new parts to this that have been included? I've been reading through the description (Heh, are you uploading with --verbose now to git? ) and I'm seeing a few things I wasn't even aware of before.

accessing git.videolan.org seems to be a bit off lately. I tried checking last night too and the whole videolan.org site was down, with the git portion variably accesible.

and stanjr should still be able to compile for x86 linux on his x64 one, by using
(iirc) --host=i686-pc-linux-gnu
which may or may not need --extra-cflags=-m32 as well

going to need the gcc multilib packages to do that tho.

Doesn't work for me either, I still get:

Code:
LoRd_MuldeR@MULDER_NEU /c/downloads/x264_git
$ ./build.sh
Initialize x264/.git
Initialized empty Git repository in c:/downloads/x264_git/x264/.git/
git.videolan.org[0: 91.121.111.144]: errno=No such file or directory
fatal: unable to connect a socket (No such file or directory)
