ChangeLog for version 8.4.6
Code:
* Merged checking of the encoding modes for the specific presets that need it 
* Removed the Black & White presets since they are useless and the only difference
in them from the others is that they don't use chroma motion estimation 
* Updated the man page

Does the script support selecting SAR or PAR to be input directly into the MPEG-4 video stream (not the container)?

The same question also applies to xvidenc.

ChangeLog for version 8.5.1
Code:
* Added support for using the neroAacEnc AAC audio encoder when using the
portable device presets icvp, ichqvp, ivp, ihqvp, ipvp, iphqvp, avp, ahqvp, nks60vp,
nks60hqvp, pspvp, psphqvp, ps3vp, ps3hqvp, zvp, zhqvp, xvp and xhqvp
* Bugfix: when using the f9 or f9hq preset with the neroAAC audio codec, -oac pcm was
not passed to the MEncoder options
* Changed default unsharp mask / gaussian blur matrix to chroma & luma 5x5 as it provides
a better balance than the 3x3 matrix

ChangeLog for version 8.5.2
Code:
* Feature request: add the possibility to specify the path to MEncoder.
Useful if the user has two or more versions of MEncoder but wants to use a
specific one for the encoding 
* Check to see if destination directory is writable by writing a small file to it. 
* Updated the README.h264enc file 
* Updated the man page

ChangeLog for version 8.5.3
Code:
* Feature request: add the possibility to disable MEncoder's A/V sync
algorithm when encoding video files. This can be used to fix input video files with
bad A/V sync in them, however there are no guarantees that this will actually fix the problem
* Added initial support for the TS container. This requires tsMuxeR and MP4Box 
(for audio/video dumps). When muxing to the TS container, only the FAAC AAC and
AC3/copy audio codecs are supported. Read the README.h264enc file which provides
more information on where to get tsMuxeR.
* Updated the -sc option, added tsMuxeR to the list
* Enabled back the use of temporary directories based on process ID to store config files
* Fixed a bug in the check_audio_codec_func() function. Variable MENOCDER should be MENCODER
* Updated the requirements part in the README.h264enc file
* Small clean ups
* Updated the man page

In your latest script:
- Not sure how to specify ac3 pass through for eventually muxing into an mpeg ts stream
- I get the following error message:

-> Utility 'tsMuxeR' or 'MP4Box' is missing!
-> Skipping AVI to TS conversion!

But I can envoke both at the command line. For example:
SmartLabs tsMuxeR. Version 1.7.3(b) http://www.smlabs.net
Usage: (and so on)

this is strange as it works here. Are you sure that tsMuxeR is in your path? eg in /usr/local/bin or similar? the script just checks with the "which" command if tsMuxeR and MP4Box are in your path, nothing else

the TS container is only supported with AAC, AC3 or copy of the AC3 stream. I'm adding support for DTS at the moment

OK, thanks. I was prepending "~/bin" to the path and exporting that.
Which works in the bash shell, but not with "which" or your script.
But everything works when I prepend the full path (not "~").

As for copying ac3 audio, this is what h264enc is giving me:

-> Scanning for audio streams...

Audio stream: 0 Format: AC3 (5.1) Language: en ID: 128.
Audio stream: 1 Format: AC3 (stereo) Language: en ID: 129.
Audio stream: 2 Format: AC3 (stereo) Language: fr ID: 130.
Audio stream: 3 Format: AC3 (stereo) Language: en ID: 131.

Specify the DVD Audio Stream ID [default is 128]:
Specify the Audio Codec [AAC/neroAAC - default is AAC]:

When I take the dfault (128) there isn't an option to just copy the ac3 over?
I'm using options: -1p -p ps3hqvp

Thanks ...

@ blaz
on a further not, are you sure that the PS3 can handle H.264 TS files? All I could find on the Net was that it can play MPEG2 TS and PS files but not H.264 TS ones

Yes, but only if i first massage the h264 with h264info.
I've got a thread here about it: http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=137517

I was hoping that your script would include some missing mencoder options that would eliminate that h264info step.

Haven't got that far yet, but that new version does run with ac3 copy and the ps3 options.

Will not be looking at this for another week (gotta travel now), but will get back to you eventually if it works with the PS3.
