Introducing rav1e_gui v1.1 and updated rav1e builds

Introducing rav1e_gui v1.1 and updated rav1e builds

Hi everyone, Yesterday, I released rav1e_gui v1.1. This build adds 2 new options which are related to my contribution toward the rav1e project I talked in this post.

Before, it was locked to one keyframe per 30 frames, but now the user can choose this interval by using the –keyint or -I flags….

Contributing to the rav1e AV1 encoder software

Contributing to the rav1e AV1 encoder software

Hi everyone, Yesterday I had my first experience writing code in Rust. I decided to implement 2 command-line options for the rav1e AV1 encoder software that I’ve been playing around for some days. The encoder currently encodes files with a keyframe every 30 frames. This value is hardcoded into the code and can’t be changed by the user unless it is changed at the code and rav1e is compiled again. Also, there is a new option which is called “Compound…

Distributed AV1 Video Encoding

Hi everyone, Yesterday, I began working on writing code to encode video files to AV1 in a distributed computing fashion using my private BOINC server. I wrote some PHP code and developed a Windows Forms software that will submit the video files to the distributed computing server so that it can send jobs to connected machines. The encoding software I’m using is rav1e. This software is currently single-threaded, which means that encoding videos will take some time, especially when using…
