Option to enable selecting multiple formats

Post by 1024mb »

Please add an option to be able to multi select formats to convert to. If anyone wants to encode to FLAC, ALAC and WavPack he needs to do it one at a time wasting time and unused cores/threads, instead with an option to select multiple formats one doesn't have to waste time waiting for one encode to finish to encode again.

Old thread, but I think this is a great suggestion. After ripping my Blu-rays with MakeMKV, I always convert the audio to FLAC (quality and compatibility with Plex for Apple TV) and AAC (compatibility with Plex for smart TVs). Then I remove the original Dolby/DTS track and mux these two tracks in the Matroska file. Anyways, at the moment I have to open two instances of XRECODE and if that could be avoided, I'd be happy.

Here's an update to try https://xrecode.com/test/setup_xrecode3 ... _1.140.exe
XRECODE 3 [64-bit] - 1.140 [Beta 2023-12-23/2349]

To enable this functionality, start the app press Ctrl+F4 and the "Output Format" radio buttons will change to [ ] checkboxes.

Thanks for the beta. However there are two issues: when an input file has multiple audio streams (say a music Blu-ray remux with TrueHD, AC-3 and PCM tracks), all tracks are encoded even though two tracks have been deselected or deleted from the input file selection and only one track remains when starting the encode. Also the encoding processes for two target codecs run back to back, not simultaneously, so it's faster to open two XRECODE instances and encode the two tracks at the same time that way. I can supply an example file or a video screen capture of the behaviour if needed. Happy holidays!

OK, I see. I fixed the app to only encode the selected tracks, but they will still be encoded format by format :)

Great, thank you! If it's possible to add parallel encoding to multiple formats in the future, it would be even better, but this is good as well.
