MCEBuddy Version and Type (32bit or 64bit):
EDIT: Sorry, just found the Cropping flag and audio normalize flags in the expert settings. So I just need to find the scaling after cropping.
Oh and btw just tried out new 2.5 Beta 1. And the crop didn’t work, I fear. But conversion is truly fast on my Intel HD530.
I just try my luck
MCEBuddy is excellent, but as everywhere there is room for improvement
Two more (or actually one combined feature) would be really hitting the spot.
A crop feature that allows to remove black bars and a scaling option to resize the video after removal of ads to e.g. HD. I know crop analysis is not that trivial.
After using MCEBuddy for removal of ads, I usually manually use ffmpeg to adopt my TV movies
(ffmpeg -i “Input.ts” -map 0:v -c:v h264_nvenc -vf “crop=x:y:-x:-y,scale=1920:1080,setsar=1:1” -r 25 -crf 16 -qmin 16 -qmax 26 -f mpegts … using CUDA H.264 in my case). I know this outputs quite a good quality and thus higher file sizes.
Ususally I also normalize audio in one go for each of the audio streams of each movie (dynaudnorm=p=1:m=50:s=0:g=17).
Scaling and qmin/qmax could be fields to be entered by users, not sure what the existing quality slider exactly does and audio seems to only raise or lower volume rather than normalizing (my gain is also quite strong).
I know it is not the main purpose of MCEBuddy, but just wanted to place such a feature. This would thus allow to create the somewhat perfect recording.
