EncodeHD & libav

So I’ve fixed up EncodeHD to work with libav (avconv) in place of FFmpeg. To be honest though, I don’t know if anyone is still using EncodeHD.

Drop a comment if you think I should publish a new version. I should probably add some profiles for newer hardware too (if there’s demand).

    Thanks for this excellent program.
    Can you help me? What keys(flags) need add making video with hardsub?

      I’m afraid neither FFmpeg or avlib support hardsubs.

    Have never been a daily user, but when I need to convert EncodeHD is what I turn to. Some Nexus device profiles would be nice. Thanks for your efforts!

    I regularly use EncodeHD.

    Is it possible to have an option to just change the video container?

    One of the best tools on the web

    It is the best converter for turning random AVI garbage from the internet into a Roku friendly format. I’ve never had it deliver out-of-sync results, etc. That said

    I use EncodeHD regularly….would hate to see it die.

      BTW, what were your reasons for going with libav over ffmpeg?

        Hey Mike,

        I was possibly a bit overzealous in my wording above. I had actually added basic support for either FFmpeg or libav. However, I’ve hit a few glitches with libav prompting me to read up further on whether I should try to support both or ditch one for the other. This post has me swaying back towards FFmpeg: http://blog.pkh.me/p/13-the-ffmpeg-libav-situation.html

        I’ve got a new version pretty much ready to go, I’m just leaving it with testers for a few days to make sure there’s no major issues.

          Hey Dan… I had read the same article…which prompted me to ask the question.

          Cheers! Mike
