    How to determine if it was encoded in 1-pass or 2-pass? Thanks!

  2. "rc=abr" is single pass.

  3. Thanks jagabo but I'm bit confused. For a 2-pass encoded video also MediaInfo shows it as "rc=abr"

    Please see below:

    The other thing is, the nice rounded bitrate - 5000 kbps. Is this from the header or is it calculated
    based on running time / size?

  5. it was 2-pass encoded with bitrate 5000. I'm not sure if I understood your question - I think It is from the header. Encoder used 5K bitrate to encode it.

    All I wanted to know how to verify if it was really done using 2-pass. IF MediaInfo can't tell that, then is there any tool to findout? Thanks

  6. x265 2-pass will show "rc=2". If you save the result of the first pass of a multipass encode it will show "rc=abr".

    I was going to say, for a bitrate rounded like that, most likely some body picked that number directly,
    and for that kind of accuracy in the result implies 2-pass

  8. Despite what Jagabo said, I would be surprised if any program or utility could tell whether an encoder used 1-pass, 2-pass, 3-pass, or n-pass. The reason for this is that the encoding is done identically regardless of how many passes precedes the actual encoding pass. All the multiple passes do is analyze the motion in the video using different approaches in order to determine how many bits to allocate for each frame, and measure how much degradation is done as a result of that bit allocation. The whole idea of variable rate is to use very few bits to encode a static scene taken from a tripod (like a talking head sports newscaster) and then use lots of bits when the camera is panning when following 30,000 runners at the start of a big marathon.

    In summary: the encoding is done identically and looks identical to the software or hardware that plays the result; the only difference is that multiple passes do the bit allocation more intelligently.

  9. For n pass encode, it should say stats-read=2 , because a stats file was read . It should say "0" for a normal 1pass ABR, CRF encode

    But it's not "definitive proof" . Because you can hex edit etc...ie. it's just metadata

    That appears to be the most definitive answer.
