Git has always worked fine for me on Windows, but I use the official Git for Windows, which I told to use the Windows SSL library, and not whatever mingw uses with its own certificate stuff.

Well ++ FWIW ++ just-for-the-record:

I moved from MSYS1 to MSYS2 in 2016, and since then I have used only and always a sufficient subset of the ~portable git package~ downloaded from the official Git source

[But between 2011 and 2016 I used a tiny subset of the extinct msysgit, and that tiny subset "just worked" as well.]

Because I just want to download source-code through git, and because I still hadn't found a git server that refuses the git protocol, there was no problem for me in using just some .EXEs instead of the entire git package.

Let's be honest, at least for needs like mine, git is BLOATWARE and bloatware is pure evil

Not to mention that its Windows port is not as good as their creators and maintainers believe...
for example, I don't see the point
(assuming there is a (good) point)
in hardcoding exec_path = /mingw##/libexec/git-core in the Windows releases.
Why didn't they choose /usr instead?

Anyway, fortunately I discovered that placing the folders *ssl* and *git-core* in the same parent directory is what git.exe requires for dealing with HTTPS
(both under the MSYS2 environment and under cmd.exe).

The media-autobuild suite loads x264 nicely from the mentioned server. It runs Mercurial (hg) for x265 or git for x264, as required, in MSYS2/MinGW.

Thanks for the update...

The only differences I can see is a new gcc version and a newer libavformat version. X264 itself has not changed, so does the new build make a difference for real life encodes?

I doubt; just for the people who can't sleep without bleeding edge software.

TTBOMK, x264 doesn't really have "releases", just a bunch of commits pushed the official Git repository every know and then. But yes, there have been a few fixes recently.

You can simply look at the Git log:
https://code.videolan.org/videolan/x...commits/master

...or just:
https://gist.github.com/lordmulder/6...c990c0312c0763

I don't want to steal LigH's protagonism in providing builds, but I just set up MABS here in my machine and I'm enjoying it, it's a great tool for people like me who know "nothing" about compiling audio/video encoders.
Anyways, I noticed that a new rev for x264 was up and I decided to upload the build I got from MABS: x264 0.161.3015 4c2aafd

Hope everything went fine with it

I do not mind at all. So I have less pressure.
