Transcoding Copy Improvement

Postby dsilveira26 » Mon Mar 02, 2009 2:36 pm

Hi,

I have working for 3 months and it is perfect.

Yesterday, I downloaded the official 1.04 version as was suprised with transcoding feature.

At it is mentioned in the blog. "if you want to use that feature, it's recommended to set a reasonable bandwidth limit in transcode options, because transcoded videos will have no fixed size, and you could fill up your ps3's hard drive pretty quickly"

Well i have and idea to solve this.

I don't you add an option to transcode to divx, instead of mpeg2. The advantage would be the transfer of smaller files, providing no less file size problems.

I sometimes do this, with converting mkv to divx, using the following script.

################################
#!/bin/sh

INPUT=$1
SUB=$2
OUTPUT=$3


mencoder "$INPUT" \
-ffourcc divx \
-ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vhq:vbitrate=14000 \
-sub "$SUB" \
-nosound \
-subfont-text-scale 20 \
-slang eng \
-o "$OUTPUT"

################################

I hope this info helps the already very good ps3 media server.
