Re-encode Anime to Save Space
|6 January 2008||Posted by whiztech under Uncategorized|
The original file size is 170 MB, and the re-encoded version is 49.9 MB. The re-encoded version only takes 30% space compared with the original one, with a minimal loss in quality.
The video are re-encoded using x264 and AAC. The encoding was done using RipBot264.
Those are the settings I use. I use mkv as the container, x264 HQ encoding profile, 2-pass with 215 kbps, and AAC-HE 64kbps for audio. If the video quality is too low for you, you can set the bitrate higher, for example, 300 kbps, but you will get a larger file. You can also set the final size of your encoding if you want. RipBot264 is pretty simple, so you don’t have much setting to play around.
P/S: If you run on Vista, make sure you extract RipBot264, and set the output folder for your encoding to the Desktop, or drive other than C, or else it will give you error.
