I'm new to this forum so I hope I have the right location for this thread...
I have a strange issue. When I use MPEG Streamclip to convert a single video to MP4 it runs absolutely fine and the video looks perfect. However, when I start a batch conversion of multiple videos in a list, I get all sorts of pixelation throughout the resulting MP4s. I am setting them to convert with exactly the same parameters but for some reason they are much worse quality. Particularly on transitions within the videos.
I was just wondering if anyone had any idea why this may happen when doing big batches and not when done singly? I'm stumped!!
Thanks in advance.

I had the same issue's, well more a pixelization issues with all mp4/avc encoding. My target was minidlna serving to dish hopper/samsung blu-ray via dlna and mp4/avc's were un-watchable with ridiculous pixelization. This is what after dozens of test encodes I ended up with, it's very dish hopper'ish since that was my main target..
Mpeg2 @ 23.976/2000br (frame/bit rates to high = stutter, low = pixelization). Audio AC3/2 ch which fixes some issues the hopper has with acc you may want better audio though, and finally in a mkv container. This gives me 1.5/2.0gb movies that stream great to my hopper & blu-ray. There is room to the push to the upside on quality but for the size/encode time I can not see the diff. I use Tencoder with this..
