Transcoding Quality: A lot of useless data

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on

Our great sponsors
  • Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support
  • InfluxDB - Access the most powerful time series database as a service
  • Sonar - Write Clean JavaScript Code. Always.
  • HandBrake

    HandBrake's main development repository

    There'd have to be significant changes since I used handbrake, not ffmpeg, for these encodes. It looks like the handbrake devs are reluctant to add VAAPI support, at least based off a cursory glance. So that means converting handbrake presets to ffmpeg commands. Not the end of the world, but not easy either.

  • encoding-evaluation

    You can find my encoding/calculation scripts, encoder presets, and ramblings at this github repo. In short, I selected 9 videos to serve as "sources" for comparison:

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!

  • Tdarr_Plugins

    Tdarr Plugins

    I'm using the Tdarr_Plugin_MC93_Migz1FFMPEG plugin with bitrate_cutoff 7000, enable_10bit and enable_bframes set to true, and force_confirm set to false. The end of the code in that link has the exact settings being used after parsing the user inputs.
