Software Home Video Encoders (H264/H265/MP4/MKV)
|Simple x264 Launcher is a very simple GUI for x264 encoder and x265 encoder that (not only) allows using 64-Bit x264 with 32-Bit Avisynth and VapourSynth. The GUI supports 32-Bit operating systems now, but Benchmarking will be disabled on such systems for obvious reasons. Furthermore the latest version now includes support for FFMS2 input, i.e. if desired you can now open media files directly without Avisynth in between. Video only encoder.

Video Encoders (H264/H265/MP4/MKV)
Click to enlarge screenshot
This is BEST ENCODER I'VE EVER SEEN.I've used a lot of program to encode my H264 MP4/AAC
1.39 GB file
-my mp4box gui(it was fast but subs which i encoded looked very bad.)
-megui[megui encoded x264 video and aac audio file then it joined this files to create main mp4 file but it took more than 6 hours to encode 1 hour video.],
-avidemux[it said 6 hours,too],
-Xvid4psp(it said 1 day requires to encode 1 hour video so i gave up to use this program)
-freemake video converter[it took 3 hours to encode 1 hour video(i think it's not bad for encoding video) but when i added srt,ass,ssa subtitles to my files,its shadows' disappeared and it can be problem when your movie shows another sentences in somewhere (they mixes.)
-Virtualdub(I've tried to save avi but it froze at the middle of video,and then i tried to load external encoder to encode my video and started but it said "projected filesize:141GB!!!"
so i gave up to encode with virtualdub.I used textsub filter to add my subs okay it was good my subs "had shadows" looked good but it wasn't useful when you couldn't encode your videos.)
-THEN FİNALLY I FOUND THİS PROGRAM.İT'S VERY VERY USEFUL AND SİMPLE ENCODER TO ENCODE VİDEOS.
I ADDED TEXTSUB SCRİPT TO AVS SCRİPT THEN I LOADED IT,CHOOSED PRESENT:VERYFAST,TUNİNG:FİLM,PROFİLE:HİGH THEN I STARTED IT TOOK 3 HOURS GOOD SUBS,GOOD QUALİTY AND FAST ENCODİNG but there was no audio in my video but i've fixed it with MY MP4BOX GUI without ruin my subs(extracted audio from my first file then muxed it with my new video file.)WELL DONE.:)
Excellent video only encoder. Mulder should combine this with his LameXP program!
Oh and for the guy who commented before me, if you save as .264, it becomes default.
Try appending "AssumeFPS(60000,1001)" to your AVS script ;-)
This is a great GUI for x264. Simple to use and very functional.
I only have two complaints for the Author.
(1)There is no way to force framerate. This tool tries to guess framerate and sometimes fails, especially on 60p source. If you try to force framerate in the command line such as "--fps 60000/1001" it will reject it. No matter what parameters I set in the Avisynth script, this tool still fails to output 59.940060 fps. The closest it can get is 59.940180 fps. I wish the Author would allow forced framerate in the command line or have a dropdown selection in the GUI
(2) The default output format is *.mkv. I feel *.264 should be the default as this tool only encodes video streams. If these two issues are fixed, this would be my favorite GUI for x264. Right now it's 3'rd behind Virtualdub and MeGui
Thank's to the Author and I look forward to mor updates.
