Default iPodME

iPod Media Encoder converts video into an iPod-compatible format, the easy way. As I was bored with the already existing converters like Videora, Xvid4PSP etc, I made this simple & efficient video converter. The profiles should be easy enough to figure, keeping in mind that slower encoding also means better video quality.
The new video files are created by default in the same folder as iPodME.
- small (4 Mb), no setup, only 1 exe to put where you want, no codecs needed
- based on ffmpeg
- really easy to use and straighforward
- easy batch encoding, just select multiple files by clicking on the “add files” button or drag’n drop them into the list
- you can add new files to the batch during encoding
- run in background without disturbing your work (with the defaut priority option)
- 6 profiles adapted to most usage : 3 encoding speed, each optimized for file size or video quality
- possibility to customize the encoding options
- support soft-subtitles, and multiple subtitles per video
- support multiple CPU cores automatically
- can shutdown your computer after encoding
- 07/01/08 - Version 1.0:
* original release
- 10/01/08 - Version 1.1:
+ added support for .srt subtitles
+ added a custom profile to allow modification of the encoding profile
= adjusted profiles a bit for more quality & encoding speed
= fixed various bugs
- 19/02/08 - Version 1.2:
+ added automatic FPS detection/correction, correcting the “video can’t be added to iTunes problem”
+ added a rough ETA estimation for the current conversion
+ added a “shutdown when finished” option
+ added the possibility to use DirectShow codecs instead of internal ffmpeg’s codecs (should support video formats than can’t be decoded by ffmpeg, if you have the right codecs for it)
+ added help file
= corrected a bug with custom profiles (libx264 ones were missing an option causing the video to not be iPod-compatible)
= corrected a bug with the ouptut path: now it will always be the same path as where iPodME is
= fixed window size problem which occured on some computers
- 12/02/09 - Version 2.0:
+ added support for soft-subtitles and multiple subtitles per video
- removed subtitles burning and DirectShow input support (AviSynth/VobSub no longer needed)
+ new input codecs supported
+ added a new encoder mode for custom profile: “output size” allow you to specify a target file size, the corresponding average bitrate will be automatically calculated (experimental).
+ output folder is now changeable
+ better remaining time estimation
= tweaked profiles to reflect last ffmpeg changes, provides faster encoding in most cases, better quality and smaller file sizes
= fixed a bug when iPodME was minimized and could be locked
= fixed some UI bugs
