1. Yes it is. Only Bitrate should have been disabled.
2. It passes "-vcodec huffyuv" parameter.

Are you sure? The resulting video is a little smaller than the general Huffyuv version. Also, MediaInfo tells me that the video codec is FFVH.

@pintcat Mencoder is selected when you choose huffyuv as video codec, try changing it to FFMpeg. I've change FFMpeg as default Huffyuv encoder.

@ozok

have u ever consider mix Tx264 with this one. I like constant quality Factor option than bit rate base option.

Yep, works great. Thanx for clarifying.

No. These are very different tools.

The original Huffyuv codec by Ben Rudiak-Gould did not support YV12 natively. This had been added by the libavcodec project (ffdshow VfW Codec), along with a few more fixes for large resolutions.

Then that explains file size differences.

Encountered a small issue...
I was trying to convert a QuickTime (MOV) video into a common MP4. The video stream was already h.264, the audio stream was PCM/uncompressed. So here is what I did:

1. Set video to Direct Stream Copy
2. Set audio to be encoded with AAC
3. Chose MP4 as output container

For some reason the resulting video was .MOV again. Apart from that TEncoder did everything I wanted it to do: Copied the video and encoded the audio with AAC. I tried both, FFMPEG and MEncoder with the same result. If I set it to encode both streams, video AND audio, TEncoder gives me the container of my choice, but not with direct stream copy.

Isn't that the expected behavior?

Of course it is expectable that the selected target container will be used when the video stream is recoded.

But if the source video format is compatible with the target container, then it should be possible to change (re-multiplex to) the container format even without recoding the video stream.

So it was supposed to not change the container if the video was just copied? Never noticed that. Anyway, thanx for the update.

Well, that was what i thought. But what you and LigH say makes more sense now.

One small suggestion: I noticed that the option for adjusting the aspect ratio is greyed out if 'Direct Stream Copy' is chosen for the video stream. The setting of the aspect ratio is usually part of the container and not the encoder so this option should stay enabled.
Everything else seem to work fine (made only a few tests so far).

Actually aspect ratio option is passed directly to the encoders so it makes sense to disable it.

I can't speak for all containers, but at least MP4 and MKV support PAR adjustment (without actually changing the video data). Isn't that what your aspect ratio option does?
Otherwise, which PAR would be used on DirectStreamCopy? Simply 1:1 or is it copied from the source video?

Aspect ratio values are used if video is encoded. Otherwise video streams are just copied. I don't know FFmpeg or Mencoder writes aspect ratio info to container properly. But AFAIK we can say it is also copied from source if video stream is copied as well.
