StaxRip is such an awesome program, and I use it a great deal. Thanks so much for all the work you put into it!

I have a couple questions:

1) Using StaxRip with x264, if, instead of resizing your video, say to 720x400 for 16:9, you keep the video at 720x480 and tell the mkv to display it as 16:9, will this result in a higher quality video, though at the cost of increased bitrate?
2) Are you sure that a 55% compressibility check is optimal? In the 55% compressibility check encodes that I've done, the resulting videos come out at times showing signs of overcompression. A smoothed image where you would expect to find a sharp, detailed image, etc. My encodes thus far have been with the "speed" setting set to medium. Or maybe setting it to slow or slower would help the quality?

can you add a option to exit and minimize StaxRip to the system tray etc when no jobs are running?
Why not close it if you don't use it? Regarding LINQBridge, it's probably to late to consider using it. Do you know which version of the .NET Framework is included with Win 7, if it's 3.5 then LINQBridge isn't much interesting.

dont resize unless you want to or have to as to hit a certain size or device as far compressibility checks try your next encode with the x264 Film HQ Preset instead of a Two Pass one and see if it works for you cheers

Looks good, StaxRip should run out the box on Win 7 then.

try to link up with Zathor to see if he can help you get DGIndexNV working with StaxRip cause he's done a great job integrating it with MeGUI i just tested it out and DGIndexNV is working

I've not tested recent MeGUI builts but from reading the thread I noticed Zathor is doing a good job. He gave me a hint to add a delay but since it's still crashing for now best thing I can do is wait until my card arrives, it should arrive this week.

I did two encodes to test out x264 Film HQ, one using that profile (which came out to about 760kbps), and another using a 2-pass encode which came out to 2,112 kbps. In the Film HQ one, forehead creases and walls were noticeably smoother and compressed-looking, while in the much larger version, they looked sharp and crisp. A third encode was done at 55% compressibility, which came out just a few kbps smaller than the Film HQ one, but the two looked about the same.

At the time 50% for x264 was established a long time ago it was similar quality to 60% XviD/DivX which was the recommended value when post processing was used. I've recently changed the assistant to only complain if it's 20% from what is defined in the encoder options.

I always use quality mode set to 20 (is it a good setting?) for my H264 encodings in the encoder properties.
What i'd like to ask you is how I should use the "aimed quality ratio" (maybe the one you've been talking about) that is always set to 50% and that I always set to 95%.

Thanks.

Best thing you can do is encode samples and movies with different values and compare the output size and image quality. CRF 18 is 100% quality and this result in large files. I always use crf values between 20 and 24, depends on various factors but mostly on the image size, small image > 20-22, large image > 22-24.

Here is a new test built:

http://www.filedropper.com/staxrip1141

It allows to customize quality, preset and tune directly from the main dialog using a context menu and has some fixes and a couple of other small changes.

Yes, I'm using version 1141. I've found the option to reset the menu and it works now. It doesn't demux the attachments though.
