Re: Handbrake using < 55% of my dual CPU System for h.254

You have a tendency to be matter-of-fact and antagonistic. I’m asking you to please keep the tone constructive, and if you have a genuine concern please voice it constructively and work with us to make HandBrake better. You certainly don’t come off like that’s your goal. I'm actually quite the puss...

Re: Handbrake using < 55% of my dual CPU System for h.254

It's safe to leave decomb and the combing detection enabled; otherwise, it wouldn't be the default. So, one of my many test files is the IMAX Cliffhanger demo, which, at 140mb, is a 40 second, 1080p, 100% comb-free, high-motion, high-detail, progressive sample: Video ID : 1 Format : AVC Format/Info...

Re: Run H.265 on Intel QSV from CLI

I never got the HEVC encoder to accept an attached mfxExtCodingOption2 (which is used to set/unset MBBRC). Yet the current code detects the same structure as working fine for the H.264 encoder. There aren't many specific divergences between 264 & 265 in the function of QSV structure fields, but a b...

Lol Handbrake still doesn't support the superior ICQ for H265 after years, only CQP. And mbbrc doesn't work either.

I tried it out last night, encoding the Blu-ray version of Bad Day At Black Rock to H.265 "Quality". The encode took about 30 minutes, and the result looks really good. File size was reduced from 23GB to 6GB.
That source is heavily grained too, isn't it?

Am I being stupid? Nope. The HandBrake GUI deliberately prevents you from doing anything that the HandBrake team doesn't think you should do, which includes arbitrary restrictions on output dimensions. For 137 identically-formatted files (I presume), I suggest you give the GUI the flick, and examin...

Add NASM To Toolchains?

BTW, I've just built HB with the very latest x265 v2.6+8 (fc0570b) which requires NASM, and it works fine.

Although it did take significantly longer than YASM, it produced slightly bigger files, and spewed out an x265 version of 0.0.

In order to support AVX-512 SIMD, both x264 & x265 are swapping from YASM to NASM. Great! Only problem is that x265 v2.7 will require a very recent minimum (v2.13), and Ubuntu 16.04 only has a v2.11 package, and 17.04 a v2.12 package. Sure, any user could just download the v2.13.xx tarball and make ...
