Nailed it. I thought when I built my threadripper rig a couple years back, I'd be sitting pretty. But then I just started enabling higher settings. Even with great CPUs, x265 is intense. At least if you're happy with the end results, it all works out. Well maybe not as much for my electric bill.

Stax thanks for making such a great app. Been using it for a few years now and realized I never stopped by to say thanks. Been a treat to use in my encoding pipeline.

Yes, if you are encoding 4K, it's non stop, it's so slow.

So in the past with x264 1080p, I could encode the entire thing and if I wanted another setting, redo it all over again.

Now it's impossible with 4K x265. You have to do it right on the first try. That's why I do compressibility check before doing the whole thing.

Yeah doing a 2 pass to hit a more controlled bitrate is impossible. It would be 30 to 35 hours on my encoding rig.

I've gotten it down to where I can hit the bitrate I want with crf but it's not easy.

@onekmilesbehind

Thank you, positive feedback from people is probably the main reason why I still like to improve staxrip, even though I rarely use staxrip myself (ok indirectly...).

Negative feedback also motivates me, for instance to improve the documentation, I don't have great problems with the technical part, the command line interface page is much better since today, it's auto-generated from staxrip, non-technical things like writing real content will be a challenge, I'm terrible in that, we'll see.

The error with the x265.exe (Multilib) has been fixed. I updated my x265 versions THX to the x265 developers ... Great support and good collaboration

Wow! That's pretty good news!

BTW, I'm kind'a looking forward to the GCC 10 compiled version of ffmpeg to see how much improvement it will show.
Will it be available?

I'm doing my best, but there are still a few problems. Not all of the tools I need the libraries are compatible with gcc 10.

What is this place? The difference?
http://msystem.waw.pl/x265/

I also did some test with 3.3+19 on that link and I got errors. Couldn't encode.

Tried Patman's x265-3.3+18-g8b61ca0ca-gcc10.0.1 it freezes at the end. Does not end. Tried it in a Command Prompt.

Well, in my testing, all of Patman's builds of x265(3.3+18-g8b61ca0ca) are working OK with different encoding speeds.

I keep encountering issues with NeroAACenc stalling (it stalled in 2.0.8.0 stable, worked fine in 2.1.0.2 and is stalling again with 2.1.0.5), don't sometimes it continues and writes out the encoded file, sometimes it aborts completely.

I've never reported a log file before, I hope this is ok? Thank you.

@craigpro

I'll take a look, meanwhile maybe try the two other aac encoders that are included.

Hi Atlantis,

I can't reproduce it with any of my x265 builds. Is there a log or something else?

No worry, I will wait for one of the future versions. I'm in no hurry to change versions, still using x265-3.3+10-g08d895bb6-gcc10.0.1 for my encodes.

Something strange happening, if anyone can help me to understand or how to find the cause

this script

Unprocessed = FFVideoSource("..........
Processed = RemoveGrain(Unprocessed, mode=2)
Repair(Processed, Unprocessed, mode=2)

and this script

Unprocessed = FFVideoSource("...........
RemoveGrain(Unprocessed, mode=2)

give the same results, like the Repair() function in the first script not doing anything.

However this script

FFVideoSource(".....................
Processed = RemoveGrain(mode=2)
Repair(Processed, mode=2)

gives a different result, like Repair is doing something here. Any idea how can I pinpoint why this is happening?

HD Audio Tracks

DTS-HD tracks have 5.1 core inside. Don't know if it's already possible, it would be great if we could extract and encode those automatically inside staxrip. eac3to -core.

At the moment I have to use eac3to separately to extract the core tracks. It would be great to have an option in the demux dialog to demux the core only and not the entire track.

Thanks for the builds update.

But it seems that ffmpeg-N-97277-ged617c85c7-g7b0c22768e-gcc9.3.0.7z is buggy. No response from execution.
Can you look into this please?

Thank you for the information. I'm going back to the old version. Many tools have been updated these days, I'll take a look at them.

EDIT: New version is online
