Simple x264/x265 Launcher

#1 Post by deathcubek » Sat Feb 11, 2012 7:15 am

Simple x264/x265 Launcher
This application is a lightweight GUI front-end for the x264 H.264/AVC
as well as the x265 H.265/HEVC encoder, based on the Qt toolkit.


Some key features of the Simple x264/x265 Launcher software include:
  • Support for creating H.264/AVC (x264) and H.265/HEVC (x265) files
  • Fully self-contained, *no* additional Codecs or Plugin's are required
  • 64-Bit as well as 32-Bit encoder binaries are fully supported
  • Optionally the "high bit-depth" encoder variants can be selected
  • Batch encoding (job control) support is implemented
  • If desired, multiple encoding jobs can be executed concurrently
  • Adding new jobs via command-line interface is supported
  • Input from the Avisynth *and* VapurSynth frame servers is supported
  • 32-Bit Avisynth/VapourSynth can be mixed with 64-Bit x264/x265
  • Straightforward encoder setup thanks to the Preset and Tuning system
  • Custom encoder parameters can be added, if desired
  • Easily manage your encoder configurations with user-defined templates
  • Consistent "look & feel" on all systems thanks to the Qt toolkit

System Requirements:
  • Windows XP with Service Pack 2 or any later Windows system
  • 64-Bit Windows is highly recommended (32-Bit Windows works as well)
  • The CPU must support at least the MMX and SSE instruction sets
  • Avisynth input only available with Avisynth 2.5+ installed
  • VapourSynth input only available with VapourSynth R19+ installed
  • YV16/YV24 color spaces require Avisynth 2.6 (see section 10)
Simple x264 Launcher is 100% standalone, i.e. it does *not* require
Mircrosoft.NET, Java Runtime Environment or other dependencies.

The required Qt DLLs and encoder binaries are included in the setup.

Note: Occasionally your Antivirus program may mistakenly detect "malware" (virus, trojan, worm, etc.) in some of the files here.
This is called a "false-positive" and the files are actually innocent (clean). It's a failure in your specific Antivirus software.
In case you encounter such problems, go to http://www.virustotal.com/ and check the file again with multiple Antivirus engines!
And take care with results like "suspicious", "generic" or "packed". Those are *not* real hits, they are just wild speculation...

Looks very interesting, thanks! I'll be testing it soon. Uses QT, doesn't it?

Just edited the live entry. Would really like a less technical breakdown on this for the entry. I know a bit about video and I still have no idea what this program does.
