Re: Windows XP compatible non-SSE2 FFmpeg builds

Another request for re-adding an FFmpeg library which has been removed in the latest builds: I recently tried some HDR to SDR conversions in FFmpeg. Most of the methods I found use libzimg for this, and the quality is much better than just using LUTs. So please include libzimg in the next release ag...

Re: Windows XP compatible non-SSE2 FFmpeg builds

I didn't think many people would still encode to XviD. If you really need it, then ok. For the time being you can use the previous build of course. Oh sure, folks using ancient computers under WinXP will probably also use ancient video formats like XviD... :geek: I did a couple more tests replacing...

Re: Windows XP compatible non-SSE2 FFmpeg builds

Yes, pretty much, but for some encodes I do see a difference in quality.

From trac.ffmpeg:
Both encoders should provide a similar output, but for lower bitrates/quality (e.g. 1000 kBit/s for 720p content), libxvid will deliver better quality than mpeg4

Re: Windows XP compatible non-SSE2 FFmpeg builds

It's sounds like you don't miss any of the libraries I've removed, so that's also good to hear. Well, almost... ;) This was something I did not test extensively, but now I went through all my WinFF templates to make sure that all required libraries were there. And there is one library I really miss...

Re: Windows XP compatible non-SSE2 FFmpeg builds

Thanks Reino for the latest builds, what a nice New Year's present... :mrgreen: Downloaded and tested the static and shared builds as well as the libfdk-aac tool. I am afraid that my comments about your new builds are becoming a little boring because they are always the same: Everything works as exp...

Re: Windows XP compatible non-SSE2 FFmpeg builds

First thing you need to know is if you need the static or the shared build. Functionality is the same, but some host software needs the shared build (DVDStyler is an example). Reino's builds all work under WinXP, and the "SSE" in the file name means SSE1, not SSE2. Older Intel P3 or Athlons do have ...

Re: Windows XP compatible non-SSE2 FFmpeg builds

I totally agree with you. For most of the libraries you mention I have no idea what they are for. So I am all for some kind of cleanup effort. Thanks again for still taking care of us retro WinXP users... Cheers manolito //EDIT// Took the new builds to my test bench. Both the static and the shared b...

Re: Windows XP Support And Intel QSV

This topic from the post: https://ffmpeg.zeranoe.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2937#p10037 https://ffmpeg.zeranoe.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=10000#p10000 seems to have disappeared from this forum. Any specific reason? This thread was mostly about the CoRoNe XP-Compatible FFmpeg builds. Is anyone here...
