Opus GUI v1.16 released

Opus GUI v1.16 released

Hi everyone,

Today, I have released Opus GUI v1.16:

Opus GUI v1.16

This release adds a new text file called audioformats.txt. In this file, you can specify the file extensions that the GUI will process:

You can add new extensions as long as ffmpeg supports it, and they will be processed only if ffmpeg is present. Otherwise, only WAV files will be processed.

This version also has some bug fixes and improvements and updates the Google APIs to their latest version.

You can download this release on GitHub by clicking here.

Enjoy!

SVT-AV1 GUI v1.5 has been released!

SVT-AV1 GUI v1.5 has been released!

Hi everyone,

Today, I have released SVT-AV1 GUI v1.5:

This new version moves the HME options to a new Advanced Options window and adds a new setting for specifying the GOP type:

SVT-AV1 GUI v1.5 Advanced Options

By default, the GOP Type will be Closed which allows seeking in the video. SVT-AV1 uses the Open type by default and the resulting videos in the previous SVT-AV1 GUI versions would have problems seeking. This is now solved by this new option.

Additionally, this version have the following improvements:

  • The First pass encoding will be skipped if the software was interrupted while performing the second pass encode.
  • A bug in the second pass where the additional arguments were not passed correctly has been fixed.

You can download this new version on GitHub by clicking here. The new version comes bundled with the newest SVT-AV1 release, which I’ve built yesterday using the media-autobuild_suite.

Enjoy!

Hi everyone,

Today, I have released SVT-AV1 GUI v1.3:

SVT-AV1 GUI v1.3

This release adds an option to prevent the use of Pipes which should make encoding stable. The downside of this is that the software will need to create a temporary .y4m file which may be huge depending on the video to be converted.

Also added is SVT-AV1 2-pass encoding.

You can download this new version on GitHub by clicking here.

Enjoy!

Opus GUI V1.14 released!

Opus GUI V1.14 released!

Hi everyone,

Last week, I released Opus GUI v1.14:

Opus GUI v1.14
Opus GUI v1.14

This release adds a new “CPU Threads” option to limit the number of threads used for the encoding. This was added because sometimes when encoding multiple files, ffmpeg may get stuck due to having 100% of CPU utilization. Limiting the CPU threads will prevent this issue from happening.

You can download this new release on GitHub by clicking here.

Enjoy!

SVT-AV1 GUI v1.1 released!

SVT-AV1 GUI v1.1 released!

Hi everyone,

It’s been a long time since I’ve released a new software update. That’s why today, I finally introduce to you SVT-AV1 GUI v1.1:

SVT-AV1 GUI v1.1
SVT-AV1 GUI v1.1

Starting with this release, files are encoded without the need to create temporary .y4m files. This greatly speeds up the encoding as it no longer needs to create those huge files. Instead, it makes use of Windows Named Pipes to pass the ffmpeg output to SVT-AV1.

You can download this release in the SVT-AV1 page by clicking here.

I made this YouTube video where I explain how the Named Pipe was added to the GUI:

Enjoy!
