I use curl in the updater function of mpv.net and MediaInfo.NET, in Windows 10 curl is included, in Windows 7 my feature is broken and I don't care, I'm not really spending extra time only for Windows 7 users, who wants the update feature has to install powershell 5.1 and curl.

What exactly you can't set?

The "Tuning" combobox is disabled for NVEncC, because NVEncC doesn't have anything like that. You can still set "Preset" and "Profile" for NVEncC.

Anything else, as always, needs to be set via "Custom Encoder Parameters" edit box...

I love dark mode.

Tell me there is a way to set it in preferences.ini.

Not at this time. It's just a crude integration of QDarkStylesheet, which works fairly well, but also produces quite a few glitches.

I will see if further improvements are possible when I have more time...

It's exactly 42.3141 percent worse

(Really, this depends on a whole lot of factors, including the kind of material you are encoding, the selected bit rate and the selected quality preset. So you are best off doing you own tests with settings that fit your workflow!)

I had no doubts, why then is it used here?
I tried something but the results are not satisfactory even at the same bitrate. I did a bluray rip of the alien film, even using the preset faster the results are much better with x265 (I have an i7 4790k). Using nvenc CQP 20 or in vbr mode, it does not improve the quality via gpu

Just as an example: With x265, I get ~5.5 fps for "4K" material on my Core-i 6700K, using the "medium" (default) preset. This goes up to at most ~15.7 fps, when using the "ultrafast" preset. With NVEncC, I get ~80 fps for the same input, on my RTX 2070 SUPER (HEVC mode, default preset). So, NVEncC typically runs many times faster than x265. This means that a quality comparison which completely disregards encoding speed is not really "fair" here.

Anyway, it's all about giving users options to choose from. If your goal is to get the maximum quality at a medium to low bitrate, and if you are willing the spend a whole lot of encoding time for that, then using one of the software encoders probably still is your best choice. But, if your goal is to finish the encode as quickly as possible while still getting a "reasonable" quality, then probably nothing will beat a hardware encoder, such as NVEncC.

I usually encode 4k via x265 on my 3900x. It takes about 16 hours.

I really wouldn't recommend encoding 4k on a quad core. Although like Lord said, hardware is an option if you dont mind the quality loss.

Not that there have been a lot of important changes in x264 (for Windows users), but a new release is up now

Thanks.

EDIT:
Regarding the lots of changes I use x264 with this settings since years.



Should I change my preferred settings or I can stay on my oldies one?
What do u suggest?

It depends what resolution you feed to encoder, how much grain you want to encode,
how much picture deterioration you can stand and which playback device you intend to target.
x264 has not changed much in that regard.

If you aim at 1080p25/29,97 blu-ray for instance and want to have transparency through grain and keep all details,
bufsize and maxrate are too high, while 13Mbps would be too misery.

If you aim at a hardware player or mobile phone and supply denoised, degrained stuff 720p@24/25/29fps,
13Mbps are good to go, while the bufsize and maxrate are still unnecessary high.

Hi
You are right I did not go into details.
I use for 1080p output and all limits are kept due to hardware decoder I have expect nofastpskip which in use to increase quality.
I still use 2 pass encode that is why bitrate is calculated for the size of output however quality is still around 1 pass 17mbps bitrate. At least I hope. :-)
Thanks for your help.
Regards.
