BTW, rds_correa, since you also speak portuguese (with some small differences), I really recommend this Distro for you. It has everything is a 192 Mb Mini-CD. And I really mean everything! Check here:

V,
i download the "Kurumin" some time ago but was afraid to use!

don't remember the version but the iso is too big...~550Mb
and run from cd without install ....don't know if is a good option.
i will that version you posted don't "miss" after restart or power off!
....better is wait for your compilation!

Hi V,
I'm definitly going to try Kurumin since it's so small and full featured.
But hey, it'll have to wait until next week so I can try to download it from work cause my link at home is 128K
and it's been down from times to times
Anyway I'm also working on a 2nd PC at home for firewall with smoothwall express since I've been attacked
with Blackice Defender.
So it may take some time before I can try Kurumin.
Thanks for the tip.
Cheers

1) Ok, this multiple audio track selection is very easy to do and very useful. Good Idea.
2) Maybe it's because of the Atlhon optimizations, I read somewhere that GCC 3.3 is really good on optimizations, specially for Atlhons (3DNow, 3DNow2, SSE). I'll compile another Atlhon build. I don't know the difference between versions, some code definatelly changed because I saw when I was updating the CVS, but I don't know exactly what.

@jorel
Kurumin can run from HD if you want. In fact, I installed in the HD in less than 2 minutes. Now, have you sen Windows installing that fast? But you can run from CD, Test, and if you like, install on HD. If you don't, trash it.But I doubt you will. I know you have ADSL, I really recommend that you download the ISO image (it's only 192Mb, fully in Brazilian Portuguese), and boot. You won't regret.
And if you install in HD, it behaves like any other distro, but detects your hardware automaticallly. And there's "Magic Icons" to install almost anything most users need, like OpenOffice, Gimp, VMware, in a Lindows "Click-and-run faishon".

@sertinell
As much as I like Kurumin as a user distro, looks like for programmers and people wanting to compile stuff it's not the best option. To install wxGTK (WxWindows for GTK), I need GTK and glib, but when I started ./configuring it became a complete mess since looks like they removed the header and setup scripts, keeping only the libs. This is OK if you just want to run pre-compíled stuff (like most users), but when you start to compile stuff, this becomes a mess. I am now downloading slackware (my favorite advanced, "do-it-yourself" distro) to try again tomorrow. But this doesn't change my oppinion about Kurumin: it's the best knoppix distro for Newbies I've ever seen, and fully documented. Too bad the english support is near none (but the brazilian portuguese support is enormous).

@bigggt and kwag
It's cool, isn't it? I got so happy when I finished this version!

@vm,

Great release MEncoderME v0.2

I had some minor problems:

1) program hung up system at 85% of 2nd pass

2) there was no log file to track the progress up to the crash

3) the partial .mpv file created (208MB) was great when viewed
with wmp, but it seemed MEncoder added cropping to the avs
MA script and the result was to much Height was cropped.

Here's my stats:

I used DVD2AVI to create .d2v and FakeAVIS as .avi. This was
used as input to MEncoderME and here are my settings:

Template: DVD to KVCD
Movie Length: 90 minutes
Target Media: 1 CD 80min
Media Size: 700MB
Audio Bitrate: 112
Cropped Width: 352
Cropped Height: 216
Video Bitrate: 975
Final Resolution: 352X240
Framerate: 23.976
Aspect Ratio: 4:3
GOP: 24
2 Pass VBR: checked

Thanks

black prince,
are you using an avisynth script?. I mean, do you feed makeAVIS with an avs file or directly with d2v (Don't know if this is possible)?
In case you use an avisynth script, maybe you'd better use the makeAVIS.conf template (please vmesquita, correct if wrong). I don't see anything else wrong in your way...

Hi.
I don't now if I understand you . But if you can't compile it, try apt-get. Kurumin is a Debian. apt-get resolve the dependeces

Thanks.

As digitall.doc already said, you have to use the MAkeAVIS template when feeding Fake avis, otherwise iy may crash. But are you sure you don't want to give the internal filters a shot?

@sertinell
Actually the problem was all my fault, I flound a page discrbing the corect package names and was able to compile wxGTK perfectly. NO there are some minor problems in my program in compilation, I am checking this.

I saw if doing 1pass the vbitrate doesnt affect the bitrate anymore/ore final size ..... did you change something Vmesquita?? As by this 1passVBR is not longer possible. I know that Vbitrate wont stand exactly for the resulted bitrate, but I could tweak filsize using this before

I didn't change anything, probably mencoder changed... Have you tried using the older build? The conf files are the same, except for some forced subs bug that I removed (sid=0).

EDIT:Linux compiled and running! Now I am compilig mencoder to test with it.
EDIT2:WxWindows is really 100% portable. The only code that gave me trouble was a pure C. ANd if I had used a wxWindows class to do the same job probably this won't even happen.

Linux version is out!

Grab it here:
http://www.jltoca.uaivip.com.br/file...deMe02.tar.bz2

It doesn't include mencoder, you need to have mencoder already installed and in the path. Just unpack whatever you like and use it.
As for dependencies, you probably only need GTK2. I compiled wxGTK static, so you shouldn't need it. I'll try to make some tests abou this.

Enjoy!

Hi vmesquita,

When selecting 2-pass, if you click on stop when you're on the first pass, the first pass aborts, but the second pass is executed, overwriting the previous encode.
So check that the second pass is never executed when a user clicks on stop

Other than that, I don't have anything else to add
The program is working just great

Hi,
Yep in 2-pass everything seems fine.
But I'm sure it's not working in 1-pass.
More I believe that nothing is working in 1-pass right now with mencoder.
Incredible alerted me to this fact and I verified it.
Apparently mencoder is not respecting the vbitrate argument.
With any of it's builds. Even the official one.
Can you test that in Linux Karl.
Cheers guys

EDIT: where are bilu and digi.doc when we need them?

I forgot to reset the second pass flag when Abort button is clicked. Thanks for the first bug report.

@rds_correa
This one pass problem is very wierd, because I haven't changed anything... I have no idea about what could be causing this. But I am ecoding an AVI right now, I asked for 900 kbps and mencoder did 10% already and bitrate is 909... Seem OK here.
BTW, I currently encoding at 352x480 in linux using my AVI filtering. Speed with ATlhon optimized mencoder is... 36 fps! And I am using filters! I would like to confirm what packages are needed in linux for the GUI to work. I think only GTK will do, but I am not sure.

Hi rui, and everybody,
I'm glad you remembered about me. Sorry, I'm very very busy right now. But as you can see, I keep an eye in the forums (when you turn back a second, and come back, everything is new).
And I'm more dedicated to two pass (the little free time I have) now.
Related to 1pass and latest mencoder builds, I didn't test it. I even didn't test it ever, since my 1pass strategy used vbitrate=vrc_maxrate (and fortunately average bitrate wasn't maxrate ).
But, I don't know if this will help you, when encoding 2pass with mencoder build in mencoderme011 (my command line, not the one mencoderme generates, but I guess that's not relevant), the first pass file I get is similar in size to that of the second pass, and with an average bitrate similar to vbitrate...
Some silly question: are you using vrc_minrate?. Yes, yes, I know, I know, the answer is: NO.
You say it's happening in latest compilations, maybe they did change a thing... bilu could help you more (he follows mailing lists of changes in ffmpeg and so...)
A silly suggestion: why don't you try to put in your command-line vpass=1?. It will generate a 1pass mpeg, and a divx2pass.log file (just erase it). Try if you think it worth, and tell me what happens...

@all

Be carefull with bitrate calculator, I forgot to take on account the mux overhead. I'll fix this.
After a few adjustments in a C function I used (I had to replace fsetpos with fseek), the code is now 100% multiplataform as I wanted. I'll probably be able to deliver the linux version just after the windows version in the next releases.
