Avidemux (with emphasis on x264/h264 GUI)

Hello. This thread is simply to collect user input for Avidemux about which GUI options for encoding in x264 should be given priority and appear first.

Here's a quote from the avidemux dev team on the issue:

Quote:
I would need to know, among the zillions of available parameters, which are interesting to expose through a user interface. So if you play with x264 and know what may be of interest please share your knowledge.

Of course, the less options, the better for the lazy people who do the UI in GTK
Please post your preferences and wants for the GUI encoding options here, or at the avidemux forums. I suspect and hope that all options will eventually appear someday.

Can you use MeGUI in Linux?

My reasons:
-I have a bunch of custom profiles I don't wish to rewrite.
-Sharktoothe's profiles are very useful, especially to the uninitiated.
-Why not have compatibility?

Well I'm curently using mencoder for my encodes ...

However I had a look on avidemux and it seemed promising ... Aspecialy I like that when I pressed 2 pass I had a option to specify the size of targed file encode ..... Great option that would allow me to have all my anime eps in 50mb .... Unfortunatly this option didn't work as 2 pass did not work in avidemux untill now ???

what I would like to see is :

bitrate bframes are a must .... as for the rest well under mencoder I also use frameref, keyint, weight_b, subq ....


There is also a nice "turbo=1" for 2 pass ... this option quickens 1pass ...

I do agree with Sirber that it's good to make some presets
Like Quality: High, medium, low ... It's just to somehow control the qualiy to encode time ....

However more advanced options should also be present , just becouse avidemux is mainly linux software and linux users like to have advanced options ...

[EDIT]
...................
Ummm It's a bit offtopic , but it would be nice if avidemux could handle rmvb input ... Mencoder can do it and it would be nice if avidemux could do it to

Edit: So Mono is the new name for Wine these days? I suggest you put a little more thought into the accuracy and meaningfulness of your posts before hitting the submit button next time.

Sorry for the OT pollution everyone.

So every developer deliberately uses their own type of profiles in order to lock people out of using any of their competitors? It may happen like that in the commercial world, but with OSS, there should at least be some attempt at co-operating. Otherwise, everyone has to 'reinvent the wheel'.

Sharktooth has done and continues to do good work with his MeGUI profiles. To use them in any program other than MeGUI, someone has to set up all of the profiles in their specific program and also manage distributions of them. It's a lot of work for someone to do, EACH time Sharktooth makes a revision, and for what reason?

Compatibility is a good thing, because it means that knowledge / work can be shared. Isn't that what OSS is about?

- cabac
- loop (+ parameters!)
- number of reference frames
- weigthed biprediction
- subme
- cqmfile
- 8x8dct
- all the partitions

note that b-pyramid would need special handling in the avidemux mp4 writer regarding ctts (as it uses extra funky frame reordering)

Maybe it'd be a lot easier to just copy the gui code from x264vfw? Than you have the bonus of an already nicely designed form and (depending on how much you have to modify) debugged form actions. It's not entirely complete, but it's a solid starting point.

If you are missing DLL's. Goto the win32 GIMP sf page and download the GTK installer.

Don't be an idiot or a hypocrite. What you said is wrong as well*, but on this forum we accept other people's mistakes, because English is by far from everyone's native language.

You just broke forum rules #4 and #11

4. Be nice to each other...
11. Don't post just to increase your number of posts. If you have nothing to say on a certain matter then don't post...
*Which version supports it, and link, please. Or even better: Can you post a link to a version that supports it please?
