> Mencoder [...] needs also to be updated...
Half a year is too old for you?
According to DoctorMorbius_FP Mencoder for MorphOS lacks an important feature present on Wintel version...
Or maybe it has problem with files more than 2GB. I don't remember what was the issue.
DoctorMorbius_FP almost switched to Intel X86 for all his needs of rescaling movies that he made to various video formats.
He uses mainly a famous Matrioska set of tools of which I can't recall the name.
Raf_MegaByte is creating a mess because, reporting incomplete information, he says much more than it should...
The real problem about MEncoder is that it is no longer maintained by the core programmers since years. Progress in MEncoder still appears because its code is mainly a MPlayer variant, however while MPlayer is still continuously developed and debugged, MEncoder is not and its problems increase...
So, as regards to MEncoder status, it's irrelevant that Fab does not upgrade frequently the MPlayer/MEncoder package. Only MPlayer is alive, MEncoder is almost dead.
Furthermore, it's important to note that the main focus in video processing is no longer concentrated on the obsolete AVI container format (and H263 video codecs like DivX, XVid and equivalents) for which MEncoder is still useful. Interest now concerns full HD videos and much more flexible and advanced containers like the Matrioska format (and the most efficient H264 video codec). Matrioska (MKV) containers can be managed with powerful packages like MKVtoolNix (command line tools and
GUI!) that are available in the Linux/Windows world and can be used with much faster processors than our PPCs...
[Not to mention the upcoming H265 codec for 4K videos...]
This was just to clarify things, I know that the current subject of this thread is audio editing, so I quit soon this digression.[ Edited by DoctorMorbius_FP 10.01.2015 - 10:53 ]
