Video Encoding
« on February 15th, 2014, 08:57 AM »
Does anyone do video encoding here? Just curious as to what formats everyone prefers.

I myself use Handbrake with x264 and either MP4 or MKV container.

I am testing FFMPEG outputs at the moment (have used it also for years for those weird formats) with VP8 and Vorbis.

VP8 is pretty good, the encoder is quite slow tho.

Has a much much smaller file size.

I also use Handbrake. With MKV because then I can test the result while encoding, etc.
No interest in Vorbis stuff, personally. I respect it, but my media player won't play it, so it's useless for me... (I only re-encode files that I want to watch on my ageing, but otherwise still fantastic, PopCorn Hour player.)

Fair call, it's just interesting is all.

I want to find the best option for when I finally sort my media server storage out
