I like HB, the quality is the best. Its easy to set it with plenty options.

I used mencoder, but it never re-ncode the quality, I can get out of the HB.

BTW, does the mencoder support multi-core encoding?

In addition to so many, many, many other options that it's easy to overlook (the manpage is bit unwieldy), some of the target encoder types accept the "threads=N" option, some automatically try to make a reasonable guess before starting off, and some just don't support it at all.

complete nonsense and misinformation. Handbrake and Mencoder both use the same encoder, x264.
Fact: You will get bit-bit identical files encoded with mencoder,handbrake,ffmpeg...etc with same x264 settings and same x264 revision.

Also handbrake/mencoder/libav/ffmpeg/super/megaipodvideoconverter And any other h264 encoder gui in existence supports threaded encoding... because they all call libx264 which has both frame based and slice based threading...

I agree, its just that I have saved my custom profiles.

I know, it is just a matter of preference.

I remember on Mencoder was some annoyance with start up....

That have turned me off from staying more close to it : ))

I hope its gone!
