    Looks just fine on Slackware with Xfce. Nice and easy GUI, and easy enough to comfigure profile.txt. Cool, and thanks

    Doesn't support directories with spaces in them. Threads option doesn't seem to work
    Prompts for mp4creator, but doesn't need this installed to run.

  3. thanks for your kind words!

    remember that xvid isn't multithreaed on mencoder... just mpeg4 and x264

    feel free to post any problems and suggestion

    (and i will look the "space" problem)

    thanks

    Xvid is multithreaded.

    Code:
    xvidenc (-xvidencopts)
           There are three modes available: constant bitrate (CBR), fixed quantiz-
           er and two pass.
    ..............................................
    snip
    ..............................................
     The following option is only available in the 1.2.x version of Xvid.
    
           threads=<0-n>
                  Create n threads to run the motion estimation (default: 0).  The
                  maximum number of threads that can be used is the picture height
                  divided by 16.
    You can grab a multithread enabled xvid here - http://www.xvid.org/Downloads.43.0.html Just download the daily snap shot.
    The default in Ubuntu and other Debian based distros are not multithread enabled. Plus they have a habit of not using NASM, so it's even slower.

  5. and i don't provide mencoder builds.. so i must rely on user repository/packages

    you can tweak the profile and add the threads parameter

    Has nothing to do with mencoder. It's the version of Xvid that is installed. I'm using MEncoder 1.0rc2 which is quite old. Check your man page for mencoder.

    If you're using an old Xvid (1.1.2/.3) specifying threads=n does nothing to it.

    All the way back to mencoder 1.0rc1 (Ubuntu Fiesty 7.04)
    Code:
    The following option is only available in the CVS version of XviD.
    
    threads=<0\-n>
    Create n threads to run the motion estimation (default: 0).
    The maximum number of threads that can be used is the picture height
    divided by 16.
    But that's for xvid. I stated the threads switch doesn't work at all

    WIth x264, it always uses more than one core no matter if it is ticked or not. With lavc it only uses one core. This is because your profile.txt has threads=auto hard coded for x264, and negates the thread option for mpeg4.

    Perhaps, since x264, lavc, and xvid all use threads=$, that could be a variable that can be passed? But that seems like too much of a coding change. I don't know, I'm not a programmer. Considering your profiles.txt is easy to read and change, I'm just editing it by hand.

    I've been using your program to encode a few streams to xvid, lavc, and x264, and they all work!. Have to say I really do like it. This is a first for me, as I'm a command line junky.

    About the directory spaces. Read from spaces, write to no spaces works. Read from no spaces, write to spaces works. Read + write to spaces, doesn't work I even did a chmod 777 on the directory so everyone has rw on it just to make sure.

    Code:
    "/usr/bin/mencoder"  -ofps 30000/1001 -vf harddup,crop=720:480:0:0,scale=656:-2,hqdn3d -sws 2 -o "/home/keith/a directory with spaces/test_automen.avi" -ovc xvid -xvidencopts bitrate=1682:max_bframes=2:bquant_ratio=162:bquant_offset=100:vhq=1:me_quality=6:chroma_me:nochroma_opt:hq_ac:notrellis:lumi_mask:autoaspect:bvhq=1 -af volnorm=1  -oac mp3lame -lameopts aq=7:cbr:br=96 "/home/keith/a directory with spaces/test.wmv"
    If I copy and paste the xvid.bat file to a terminal it runs fine.

  9. i use xterm to launch the encoding bat... could be this ?

    xterm -e "path to bat/xvid/bat"

    (any suggestion is appreciated!)

    i am too a command line guy but my knowledge of linux isn't to much (just installed 4 month ago)

    Code:
    bash-3.1$ chmod +x automen52 
    bash-3.1$ ./automen52 
    Segmentation fault

    That was quick

    I can confirm that threads are working as expected for xvid, lavc-mpeg4, and x264. But not mpeg2.

    For wmv, threads are enabled, but, wmv encoding (and flv) only support a single thread.
