I thought it would be interesting to know how people encode x264.

are you guys (all non native speakers by the way, me included) misreading my sentence.. I'm not saying that 95% of all the people using x264 use MeGUI as a GUI for x264.. but 95% of the people that do use MeGUI, do so for x264 encoding, not for xvid encoding, fmp4 encoding or snow encoding, muxing-only, audio-only, etc.

I wish I could vote twice because I use both win32 and *nix systems. I ended up voting for the win32 tool (MeGUI x264) because I use that more often than batch/script now.

The full MeGUI is great for all the ASP projects though. Now I just have to try out StaxRip before I can say I've put all these apps through the ringer.

i have a couple of .bat with my most used switches, if i want other switches i call the exe only, which i assume is what you meant by "command shell" even tho calling a bat is actually also command shell.

@unmei

The thing you use is "batch, script", .bat means .batch

im a big fan of megui, i used it purely for my x264 stuff (pretty much all my dvd's are being converted for the psp). the bitrate calc, d2v creator and the avs creator mean it pretty much does all i need.

To hell with VfW and AVI

Command line & batch is the only way to fly. Though I have to say I too have a common batch and I just edit it should I need to or a new feature become available.

@sirber, that's what i voted.
My point was just, whether i open the CLI to type in something like "x264.exe -blah -blah" or "x264fast blah blah" doesnt make much of a difference.
Well, except that i generally use less parameters with the batches than with the exe (that's what they are for after all ).
