Modern video encoding in 4MLinux
 
Hi,

4MLinux 26.0 (to be released at the beginning of September 2018) will come with full support for VP8/VP9/AVC/HEVC video encoding.
I was having a really good time trying to write modern presets for quite old Hyper Video Converter:

Note:
These are (rather simple but) modern presets: constant video quality with resultant bitrates.

Encoding with MEncoder.
 
After many hours, I was finally able to compile legacy version of MEncoder and to force it to produce YouTube-like video formats.

Install MEncoder: Menu > Extensions > MediaApps > Players > MPlayer
Go to Menu > Multimedia > Let’s edit > HyperVC
Right click on Manage Profiles and choose mencoder.

Available presets:
AVI for web -- 360p
AVI for web -- 480p

Note:
These are (rather simple) old-school presets: constant bitrates with resultant video quality.
