Superb!!!

Brilliant software.

I use this commandline tool as part of a conversion sequence to turn TV captures into smaller .mp4s for later playback on a "WDTV Live" box.

The X264 commandline can be daunting to figure out initially (examples abound though, just search) but once you have a useful commandline then Bob's your Uncle. eg "my" commandline creates h264 video which is proven fully compatible with the WDTV Live in terms of the "video technical compliance stuff". Happy days.

X264, when combined with FFMPEG to convert audio and with MP4box to mux the video/audio into an .mp4, provides you with capability to create your own (repeatable) custom tailored encodes.

Fantastic.

Extreme compression might be a very good feature for Sharing in-contra to my previous comment. Still figuring-out quality settings for personal back-up.

Other ripping tools like Xvid4PSP, StaxRip, RipBot264, FairUse Wizard, MEGUI must be updated to this version accordingly.



Sep 3, 2010 Version: Version:r1703 OS: Linux Ease: 9/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value: 9/10 Overall: 9/10



v r1703 better compression, but, video loses overall sharpness.
it's disappointing.
Target Video Bit rate : 1 500 Kbps
Actual Video Bit rate : 817 Kpbs (Too Low than target results-in poor Quality)


Hope for better improvement in next release.



Aug 26, 2010 Version: r1703 OS: Windows 7 Ease: 9/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value: 9/10 Overall: 9/10



Simply the best implementation of H.264 spec.

It is a CLI tool so some patience is required to learn it, otherwise use some great GUI's like
Ripbot, StaxRip, or MeGUI.
