I could have looked for another hundred years and never thought about this...
Looks like I'm all set now. What dazzles me a bit is the cpu power required for the mencoder engine. I own a 2,16 Core Duo imac, and if I transcode 1080p without size limits, this transcoding buffer is just melting away! If I set the limit to 17 mbps, I am alright.
Another question though (maybe not the right thread, but I'll give it a shot):
I read that DTS audio is transcoded to 5.1 lpm on the fly, so far so good (will test this later on). Anyway, if you have a VC-1 video codec in an m2ts file, it looks right now as this is a no go for streaming to ps3. Furthermore, I know that a lot of people reencode to h264, which requires top of the line computers and still very much time.
Is this the end of the psm road for VC-1 codecs? Or will the ps3 have to learn to read VC-1 streams via a Sony update? Or is there another elegant way around this problem?
I like to have your thoughts on this.
