If you upscale this on a high res monitor/TV you will probably want to keep it a bit lower though.

I have 200 VOBs, over 1TB. I did a sample run, and I believe it took a 6GB iRobot vob down to 3GB. Which is fine in my books... I get ~4GB 720/1080p rips from the net when possible, but some of my DVDs are hard to find. (iRobot is not, its just a good looking movie as a test). I would be doing my script via Linux btw.

I have a 40" Samsung 5000 series LED tv.

Handbrake is the best DVD ripper out there. Easy to use and VERY powerful.

Nonetheless, good support for the open source community. Nice find. +rep

Funny you say that. The x264 developer himself has personally suggested Handbrake to me in the past on several occasions. Here's another example: http://forum.doom9.org/showpost.php?p=1413684&postcount=3

Would you qualify him as "serious about encoding" ?

I agree with you about Quicksync, but you're wrong about Handbrake.

x264 Hi10P+ AVS + vdub (or your choice of AVS editor) + audio encoder will give you the versatility along with quality. For decoding, MadVR + MPC-HC or CCCP

If you want to get technical, it's not a GUI, it's a Transcoder.

And so what if it doesn't support every single x264 CLI option (most of which were made for testing purposes and shouldn't even be used). For example:

http://forum.doom9.org/showpost.php?p=1377077&postcount=5

Here's another post he makes that pretty much shoots down your CLI is better misconception:


Feels like you're arguing for the sake of arguing - I guess I'll bite.

You seem to see everything in a very 'black and white' way. Just because a dev held a certain view few years ago, it's still held as status quo? And, would someone who is serious about encoding use a 'straightforward solution' that is still limited?

I can tell you that majority of encoders in the anime fansubbing community don't use HB (FYI, I used to translate). And this is coming from a community with a bleeding edge history in video encoding, where we pushed h264 originally, made one of the VLC devs rage about .ass and pushed for hi10 a couple of years back (CCCP was probably the first 10-bit decoder publicly available. And of course, CCCP is closely related with Rizon and the fansubbing community in general). And this is encoders who spend their time in yatta fixing individual frames.

If we were to have this conversation back in 2010 (like the second quote you've linked, which is out of context), then I would've been content with -preset medium. But this is 2013, I would use medium on my ipad, not for archiving purposes. CLI being better is not a misconception. It's the truth. Since when was limiting the tools at your disposal a good thing?

Like I originally posted, if you care about you're encodes, you would learn x264 and do it properly.
