I would need whole file from the very begining to the first pause + 1 min as extra buffer.
For example if pause happens at 19 min mark then I would need first 20 min.

Batch Compressing M2ts files

Hello Atak, thanks again for the program.

Im using version 1.24, and when I add m2ts file using batch moe, they add successfully. But they wont compress, I get this message.

[avisynth @ 0000015d7cd1d1c0] FFVideoSource: Can't open '\\EARTH\RipBot264temp\job1\video.mkv'
(E:\Temp\RipBot264temp\job1\Chunks\getinfo.avs, line 7)
E:\Temp\RipBot264temp\job1\Chunks\getinfo.avs: Unknown error occurred

The video.mkv file its looking for does not exist. I can browse to that location successfully from all networked computers.

What should I do to fix this?

Thanks again

Edit - I found a solution, I renamed the files to m2t. I hadnt noticed that the m2ts files didnt have audio either when brought into rip bot.

The en dash (–) is slightly wider than the hyphen (-) but narrower than the em dash (—). The typical computer keyboard lacks a dedicated key for the en dash, though most word processors provide a means for its insertion.

had a filename with the "en dash" in it and it will make several batch job fail because it handles the file symbol wrong and cant find the file. Dont know if its possible to warn if input filename contains symbols that are not allowed.

In Windows, hold the Alt key and type in the numeric block before you release it:
en dash – = ANSI char 0150
em dash — = ANSI char 0151

Other symbols/characters are an issue to.
Maybe a job to strip characters that aren't supported before import? (as a non-default option)

Been looking at not using separate programs to handle subs and audio and just use RipBot for everything.
QAAC isn't an encoder. Rather, it's a wrapper for the iTunes AAC Windows encoder.

When encoding music to AAC (m4a), I use QAAC and the latest installed version of iTunes on Windows. Works well...

Why does everyone call it an encoder: https://www.videohelp.com/software/qaac
What is the difference in a wrapper and encoder in this case?
I thought the 3 main encoders for AAC were FHG, FKD, and QAAC

Relying on batch files is a suboptimal solution, in particular on Win 7 because there is trouble with certain types of characters.

The solution is ShellExecuteEx.

Code:
proc.File = "cmd.exe"
proc.Arguments = "/S /C """ + commandLine + """"

Hey Atak,

thank you for the very nice tool!!

I tried to recode some anime series with more than one audio stream.
How do I enable "keep all languages and simply xcopy the stream" in batch mode?
So far, only one language is preserved.

Edit: I looked into to the temp folder - both audio streams are demuxed and present in the job folders - but only one is remuxed into the final encode. Tested it with several different sources.

Question about x265. I finally have a player that can natively play x265 without any transcoding on the server's part. I was looking to re-rip a TV Show I have. When I loaded up an episode in Ripbot and looked at the settings between HEVC and x264, I saw no file size difference on 2-pass. I thought H265 was supposed to save on file size?

filesize = bitrate * duration

If you set x264 and x265 to the same bitrate encoding the very same e.g. 90 minutes movie then the filesizes will be identical. HEVC marketing tells you HEVC can achieve the same quality as AVC at half the bitrate but that's marketing. In reality it is highly dependend on the source material and the target bitrate. At very low bitrates HEVC may easily achieve those 50% but at higher bitrates AVC and HEVC aren't much different. Since "quality" is subjective you may want to do a few test encodes yourself.

Thank you. Yes I was setting them to the same specs so that could be why. I generally keep TV episodes at 4-5Mbps.

Try CRF with HEVC unless you want similar sizes for all of your movies. CRF goes for similar quality. Start at 22 and go lower (better quality) or higher depending on if things meet your expectations.

When RibBoot264 is set to shutdown after encoding several movies and you the day after starts up RibBot264, then it dosnt keep the history of the encoding. Normally a job is like [Job 1] ...... and when it finish it says HH:MM:SS [Job 1]..... or *Errror* [Job 1]..... so you know it finished properly or not. But this info isnt saved when using the shutdown client/server, then it just looks like the job has never started.

The difference being, QAAC on its own doesn't do anything. It cannot encode audio without the needed dlls from iTunes, whether that's an installed copy of iTunes or ones extracted from the installer.

I can see why QAAC is listed under the encoder section on Video Help, but it's still not an encoder, per se.

Either way QAAC audio output is different than the versions in RipBot right now.

Does Ripbot support UHD rips? I am getting an audio error when trying to load up the source file.

Encoding Priority

Hey Atak_Snajpera,

Any idea why my 2nd encoding server has encoding priority set to normal? I have a server running Win 2016 with an up to date copy of ripbot and a PC with Win10 same version of ripbot. The PC has it's priority set to normal instead of low... The server gets the correct setting of low for it's encoder.

I've tried running the encoding server.exe from the server on the PC via a file share. No change.

running the updater on both systems. no change.

Double and triple checking that low priority is set in the .ini file.

Any other ideas?

Thanks, ripbot is awesome of course!!

Show me some screenshots because at the moment I do not know what you mean exactly.

Atak_Snajpera,

Here is a screenshot. It is the Encoding Priority, which is set to normal instead of low.
