    Thanks telperion, x264 now builds fine with opencl. Now to test it out
    You think that's air you're breathing now?

    Re: FFmpeg Mplayer VLC - News & Howtos

    I have a cutting edge CPU but a reasonably ordinary GPU:

    With --opencl:

    Code:

    >      --bitrate 800 --preset faster \

    it seems that with a multicore cpu (I have a Q8300) there is no advantage to using OpenCL, and even disadvantages ...

    Re: FFmpeg Mplayer VLC - News & Howtos

    I'm going to post my own howto, which covers doing various things with ffmpeg (and mencoder), in the hope it helps someone.

    http://home.roadrunner.com/~computertaijutsu/dvds.html

    Even though it's more RH and offshoots oriented, most of it will work out of the box on Ubuntu.

    A lot of work in there . A small quibble though: is this completely true:

    Most current distributions actually use the more modern genisoimage.
    I have personally used mkisofs for many years with absolutely zero issues at all, mind you I am loathe to reignite the war between Debian and Jörg Schilling...

    With the reopening of the Tutorials section on these Forums I have updated my vlc guide for Raring Ringtail and here it is:

    Howto: Compile the development version of vlc under the latest Ubuntu release
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2141949

    It feels good to be 'back in the saddle'

    Re: FFmpeg Mplayer VLC - News & Howtos

    @andrew.46, I don't want to reignite that fire either. As I said it is mostly based on RH based distros, but it seems to be the case with Fedora and Ubuntu, as well as #!Crunchbang.

    If you are using mkisofs on Ubuntu, please try running mkisofs -version and see what you get.

    However, that particular issue that I had, with files over 4 GB, was on CentOS, which is based on RHEL, therefore, uses older packages. It might just be that the CentOS version (and this was CentOS 5.x) was the one with the problem, and if Mr. Schilling has made newer versions of mkisofs, it's no longer a problem.

    EDIT

    I've changed the wording, to indicate that my issue was with CentOS 5.x, and that I've heard, but untested by me, that current mkisofs also gives no problem, however, most RH and Debian based distros use genisoimage. As I said, I too, have no wish to reignate fires, so I left out all reasons behind the changes, and also reworded it to indicate that the only problem I had was with a CentOS 5.x mkisoimage.

    Thanks for the information, I actually, to my chagrin, hadn't realized that this was part of the cdrtools controversy, and of course, I should have realized that.

    Re: FFmpeg Mplayer VLC - News & Howtos

    Well to tell the truth I do my burning on Slackware . So my version of mkisofs is:

    Code:
    andrew@skamandros~$ mkisofs --version
    mkisofs 3.01a13 (x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1993-1997 Eric Youngdale (C) 1997-2013 Joerg Schilling
    I believe at the moment the current limitation for ISO-9660 is 8TB. The man pages for mkisofs state:

    Code:
           ISO-9660/JOLIET/UDF filesystems are limited to a maximum size of 8 TB.  The maxi-
           mum size of a single file is 8 TB (single files in UDF are currently  limited  to
           aprox.  200 GB).   If yo like to have files larger than 2 GB, you need to specify
           -iso-level 3 or above.  If a HFS hybrid is created, the  maximum  file  size  for
           files in the HFS hybrid is 2 GB in any case.
    But certainly it is difficult to get mkisofs running under Ubuntu and it looks like the PPA that was a decent way of doing this has been neglected of late .
    You think that's air you're breathing now?

    Re: FFmpeg Mplayer VLC - News & Howtos

    A quick google indicates that the version used in CentOS 5.x was mkisofs 2.x. Also, to be clear, the problem wasn't consistent, and not a problem with video files, only some data files. At any rate, I learned something today, so many thanks. (And the article has been edited a bit, which is good, as otherwise, it might have--completely unintentionally--reignited the old fight.)

    ffplay trick of the day:
    Code:
    ffplay input.txt
    Text file to video:
    Code:
    ffmpeg -chars_per_frame 200 -i input.txt output.mkv
    Random junk to video:
    Code:
    ffplay -f tty -chars_per_frame 200 /dev/urandom
    ffmpeg -f tty -chars_per_frame 200 -i /dev/urandom -t 10 output.mkv
    Show FFmpeg Changelog via http (stolen from ubitux in #ffmpeg-devel)
    Code:
    ffplay -chars_per_frame 200 -f tty 'http://git.videolan.org/?p=ffmpeg.git;a=blob_plain;f=Changelog;hb=HEAD'
