I didn't encounter any freezes with r1332 so far. But we should update to r1336 now, as it contains "various weightp fixes".

Hopefully the freeze problem some people encounter is gone too...

Updated x264 to r1336 (JEEB's builds). It's recommended to update from r1332, as there were "various weightp fixes".

Also the minimum x264 revision supported by the GUI was reduced to r1318 again

If that problem isn't specific to my launcher (which appearently is the case), then this is the wrong thread to complain.

It seems I found a way to reproduce the crash. Edit: or maybe not...
Anyway it happened 3 times in a row when I watched something with MPC-HC in fullscreen. Message "encoding finished" appeared on top of the video, after I clicked OK, MPC-HC lost its focus (focus lost to launcher.exe) and GUI crashed.

I don't see how another process, such as MPC-HC, could crash my GUI process.

Well, unless MPC-HC injects a DLL into my process and the code in that DLL triggers a crash

So are you 100% sure it has something to with MCP-HC? I can't reproduce it here...

Updated x264 to r1342 (JEEB's builds).

It's recommended to update ASAP, because in earlier revisions Weighted P-Frame Prediction could produce out-of-spec H.264 streams.

Thanks!

I'll have to say, this is a neat utility for doing the occasional encode.

Only thing I wish this did have, was the ability to select several .avs files which would then all be encoded. Just batching.

I mean, no need for "fancy" queue system with separate settings per encode or anything like that - just set settings once, select a bunch of avs files and out comes a bunch of 264/mp4/mkv files with the avs files' basenames.

Would be a nice addition, but since the sources are provided I can add that myself at some point if I really really need it.

It could be very nice to have that feature, so you could go to sleep or work, without wasting too much encoding time.

Thanks, but --zones doesn't work with this launcher ("error") :P I like to use zones to set even lower quality on end-credits.
EDIT: Though b=0.2 is probably better to use for end-credits than q=29 :P

There is no reason why that option shouldn't work. You can enter whatever "custom" parameters you like

But the GUI won't check your custom parameters at all. Not even for correct syntax! The parameters are forwarded to x264 exactly as you enter them.

So probably there was a mistake in your custom parameters. But it's impossible to, because you didn't even paste your log...

[EDIT]

Does x264.exe (not the GUI) crash when using the "--zones" parameter? If so, then this is a bug with x264 or more specifically with x264 compiled under MinGW32.

It's not related to the GUI at all. You'd probably have to get a build of x264.exe that contains the "zone parse fix" patch...

I used the parameter: --zones 148400,153528,q=29
and I used the x264.r1342 that came with your latest launcher (and it used the x64-version of x264 when I encoded something). I'll try that parameter later (after I've done my current encode without zones, which will take some days) with only x264.r1342 in commandmode (but then with x264 32-bits).

EDIT: Thanks, I'll try that x264-build after I'm done with my current encode.
EDIT2: --zones worked when I changed x264-build...

Your error description remains extremely vague. Anyway, try to replace the "x264_x64.exe" with that one:
http://komisar.gin.by/x264.1342kGIT.core2.x86_64.exe

(Note that you must rename the download to "x264_x64.exe" and replace the existing file)

LoRd_MuldeR, thanks for the great tool.
There's a feature request: Would you add the "delete intermediate files" feature?

edit: another feature request: automatic save program output into a log file.

Thanks!

Before that there really should be implemented a shutdown feature.

Maybe Lord Mulder lets us know where this little puppy is headed.
Possibly someone is able/willing to support/help?!

Nice little GUI! Simple, easy to use.

Small feature request: It's not a big deal, but since x264 supports .flv export now, can you add that too?

There might be a small spelling error, when it says "compleded" instead of "completed"

Thanks
