qencoder 2.0-rc1

qencoder 2.0 totally upends the backend to bring you faster, safer, better encoding. Featuring:

Lsmas/vapoursynth based splitting (massive disk savings and MASSIVE stability improvements) [Linux only, for now]
Time based splitting. The classic from neav1e comes to qencoder! But unlike regular time based splitting this time splitting is slightly smarter, relying on maximum kf distance to ensure it's creating barely/no unneeded keyframes
ffmpeg based splitting. Safer than pyscenedetect (but slower and possibly slightly less efficient) and built RIGHT into ffmpeg.
uses a standardized, smart, and public backend - parallel encode. Parallel encode is a tool for ANY developer looking for parallel encoding functionality.
no more av1an code in qencoder, it's all moved to a separate backend
fewer deps for both qencoder and for parallel encode - more optional deps as well - good for everyone basically.
less crap printed to the terminal/console window
ADD FOLDER TO QUEUE
QUEUE JOBS - encode multiple queue items at once
Encoding now completes automatically.
Target VMAF works with scaling/cropping video.
For Linux/Windows users who want to avoid large binaries- install with pip: pip install qencoder==2.0rc1

This RC contains ALL the features of 2.0 but with less testing than I feel comfortable with to release as a proper 2.0 version. I'm still confident that it is as stable as previous qencoder versions, just not as stable as a proper 2.0 should be, which is 100% stable with 0 failings.

(okay actually it's rc2 but it's basically functionally identical to the version on pip)

??? on the reviews below. I decided to get it from github just to see what you meant by dependencies and the only program I needed for av1 encoding was aomenc, well and ffmpeg but ffmpeg was already installed for audacity and the instructions clearly said that. I swear, millenials these days can barely handle their way around an ipad. Asking them to read directions is far beyond their abilities. But even then I do not understand why they would complain when all you need to do is download the exe.

Give that man below a drink! "It suffers way too many dependencies..." So true of much of Opensource these days. Over adventurous, but losing the sight of simplicity. Opensource is usually the inspiration for commercial software and quite often innovative ideas are 'copied' or even bettered. This unfortunately is not one of 'em!

Impossible to get to work, seems to suffer from the same issue that plaques lots of open source software written by amateurs, namely way, way too many dependencies.

I don't know what's worse, Windows "developers" that use proprietary languages like C# that require one to install a run-time and an API for a relatively simplistic program or open source "developers" that require the end user to install countless dependencies and then trouble shoot countless incompatibilities.

If you're on Linux, don't bother wasting your time with this one.
