Gonna try it right now. Lets hope that the a/v is more in sync now too
I am getting stuttering audio when i use the avisynth/mencoder transcoder as well as with avisynth/ffmpeg. So I can only use mencoder for transcoding. The only problem is that the audio frequently goes out of sync with mencoder. Mostly noticeable when I am watching some episodes of Knight Rider in HD (yeah we don't have alot of HD content by cable around here).
Sorry, but before I could read your reply I did post an issue... Can you cancel it? Maybe for others a useful observation could be that using the "avisynth/mencoder" engine one does get better VC-1 performance on multi-core machines.
I have noticed a thing with the new MEncoder (must be it, havent changed anything else), i watched a movie yesterday with the "old" MEncoder HT and i watched the same movie second time tonight, with the new MEncoder HT. With the new one, in dark scenes (night/dark rooms) blacks and shadows are very unsmooth, like poor xvid SD resolutin. It gets pixelated and big blocks appear!
