I’m extremely disappointed in the rewrite, since it’s completely broken the ipod and appletv functionality under Vista. I’ve had to go back to 22.214.171.124 to get a working product.
2-pass doesn’t work at all (produces only a zero-byte file although apparently all the computation is still happening) and 1-pass has a/v sync issues.
And can someone explain to me why only the low-resolution ipod profiles have a 1.76 aspect ratio while appletv supports 1.76 at 848x480, 816x464, 768x432, 736x416, 704x400, and 592x336–all reasonable for DVDs that letterbox a 2.35 anamorphic into a 1.76 widescreen so that you don’t get vertical bars added to what’s already letterboxed? The best you can get on the ipod profile is 368x208 which I can’t use for both devices. We really need an ipod profile for 1.76 that’s 640x364 which downscales nicely and has enough pixels to look good on an appletv. Even adding any of the appletv 1.76 resolutions listed above as valid ipod resolutions would help.
