I was waiting for this feature in the new version. But didn't find it in the changes log.

I didn't give a specific time about that. I'll add it, don't worry. I already had codes ready for video downloader so I implemented it first.

Hello ozok, thank you for this great program.I have some feature suggestions.Can you use FFmpeg for burning subtitles not Mplayer.FFmpeg can use fontconfig and have ass/ssa subtitles.This option to keep ssa/ass style is very useful,can you provide gui to edit these styles (for example font,size,italic,bold color outline shadow).
Thanks again and sorry for my bad english.

@disto Last time I tried to use ffmpeg to burn in subtitles it didn't work. Perhaps they improved it but I have to check it first. I can't add it if ffmpeg cannot burn in srt subtitles for example.

Thank you for the answer.
In this case can you implement gui for this option in mencoder ass-force-style.
This option can override ass/ssa style with user choice options.For example:
Gui for font,color,size,margins.Something like this:

Once again ,thank you!

P.S.1: In version 4.3.0 there is ability to add custom arguments to mencoder.I can write custom .ass style via ass-force-style and it works fine.Excellent job.
But there is one problem with mencoder,It can not use full cpu power.Even though i selected 4 threads in settings mencoder can not use 100 %.
In encoding settings can you provide an option for choosing threads to auto mode (threads=0).It probably can help to utilize full cpu power.
P.S:2:Are you considering to add support for mpv player?.It is a fork of mplayer/mplayer2/mencoder with different syntax for commands.
More info about mpv player encoding abilities: https://github.com/mpv-player/mpv.io...s/encoding.rst
P.S.3:Can you add an option for selecting FDKAAC.Sherpya mplayer/mencoder build support this encoder.

CPU usage depends on many things. The codec you are using, codec settings, input file's properties etc. I generally don't get 100% cpu usage when I use MEncoder so I run several instances of it at once. Make sure you unchecked "Use single process for x264" under "Encoding" settings.

I tried to make something out of mpv a while ago. It has many improvements over mencoder but syntax change isn't appealing (I don't remember syntax being too different than ffmpeg's). I'll keep it in mind though.

TEncoder doesn't use that mplayer/mencoder build anymore. I couldn't get it to work with subtitle fonts so I dumped it. Also fdkaac support needs and external library (a dll) file and I'm not sure if I can distribute it.

Yeah,i tried all available mencoder/x264 settings , but mencoder still use around 85% cpu.It's not Tencoder fault.
Mencoder is broken by design,ffmpeg is faster.But with mencoder is easier to hardburn custom styled .ass subs and i will stick with it.

I only ask to add option to choose fdk in audio codec settings in Tencoder.I will compile my own build.I dont like other aac encoders,fdk for now is best among others.

And at last one feature request.Can you add ability to edit whole command line options before encoding.For instance scale is used always and i want to remove it.

Once again thank you for this great program!

subtitle help

Hi,
Been trying out TEncoder to create "hard subtitles" into existing mpg files. This is the odd behavior we are seeing
1. Source video files are MPG, with MPEG 1 Audio Layer 2, FPS 29.97
2. trying to burn a subtitle file saved as an SRT and created in subtitle edit. The subtitles are perfectly syncd in subtitle edit
3. The exported settings are H264, 6000 KBPS, CBR, aspect ratio :keep, FPS: same as source, container: mp4

The end result has the subtitles out of sync but burned in.

Any suggestions to fix the sync? Any subtitle format other than SRT?

Also, the "Trim" feature tool is grayed out. Is this feature activated yet? any hints if so?

Thanks

@disto I don't think the mencoder version included in the package supports fdkaac. It's a bit old but is the only mencoder version that I've came across that respects subtitle font settings.

@infante Everything seems to right about your steps. Is it possible that mencoder detects source's fps wrong? I can't think of nothing else, please check encoder logs or post them here. Also, did you try first preview the file within TEncoder? You can enable trimming in settings window > encoding tab.

Regards.

Hi Ozok

I've posted my logs here. There appears to be an extra frame??

the subs are in sync in the beginning and then slowly get worse and worse...

Curious. I thought that FFMPEG does support burned in subs using libass?https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/HowToBu...itlesIntoVideo

Thanks!

Hi All,
found more info.

Our original steps which resulted in bad sync from TEncoder were: 1. digibeta source and captured/encoded to MPG with TMPGENC 2. Brought the MPG file into subtitle Edit (using VLC to display video) to sync subtitles and noticed it was off and resync'd the file. It looked good in subtitle edit when done. 3. re-encoded in TEncoder to burn subs which resulted in out of sync.

I wanted to confirm the source so I re-encoded the source to MKV and brought the MKV into subtitle edit and the SRT file worked perfectly without any modifications. I re-processed the "burned subs" in TEncoder and it sync'd perfectly!

I re-looked at the original MPG that resulted in the bad sync and interestingly VLC player was displaying the time code as 1:49:17 and TMPENC/AVANTI were both showing timecode at 1:49:49 .

So my conclusion is that VLC is the culprit as I used VLC as my video player in subtitle edit. VLC correctly read the MKV but incorrectly read the MPG which threw off everything else. I have since changed subtitle edit to use DirectShow and everything works well. Thanks Ozok for the message...

Is there any progress about adding video joiner tool?

There is a option in some video converters to "Enable GPU Acceleration" due to which the conversion becomes very fast please implement this feature in TEncoder if possible.

@kolpotoru I can add this iff ffmpeg or mencoder supports it. AFAIK latest versions of ffmpeg has some hardware decoding support but I don't know to what extended that is. I constantly forget about merging. Sorry about that.

Please add the video joiner in the next release because it is a important part of any video processing tool.
If Information about Hardware acceleration is not available now then we can wait until we find more information about it.
