for wma 96kbps is good enough.lossy at higher bitrate cannot be detected by human ear.

ideally for the best i rip cd's at wma 192kbps
for mp3's i use lame 3.97 encoder at V-0 extreme profile i.e., around 256 VBR.
and for my phone i convert them to m4a i.e., AAC-LC using xillisoft converter(keep the bitate to 32 coz it's VBR) or using dbpoweramp use 100kbps ABR

not everyone will have pc and TV side by side for the config as you said above.
Get a longer cable! :D

In my case PC is my room(II floor). Tv is in 1st floor hall.
No, seriously, you can get audio/visual cabling done according to the specification of your choice, the same way people lay down networking cables in their homes along with the regular wiring. In my case, I don't trust/like wireless, so I have Cat-6 cables running all along my house. This was done years after we got the internal wiring done throughout the house, so we have these plastic pattis running along the skirting of the floor, which are camoflouged with the same paint used on the walls. And I have my Cat 6 cables running through them exiting at strategic locations, and have room for expansion of audio/visual wiring, should I ever need it.

And then my friend, you have a truly digital home at your disposal! :D

What?? to play,skip,ff,pause,stop you ask me to move between floors? Lan cabling is ok..even I have Cat cables running all along my house. But what you recommended is not a feasible option in real world...atleast for most people.
 
AFAIK mkv cannot be joined/splitted/edited without conversion.
rong. MKV-ToolNix is the right tool. AVI-Demux works too.
^ well he aint the gr8 Axxo.i really will relish the day vp7 becomes mainstream.i've been fighting for it since about 2yrs.if not it rmvb and h.264 are good enough.
RMVB Sucks compared to H.264 and VP7
VP7 is not mainstream because it lacks support in many platforms.
H.264 is here to stay.
The day JB Kemph, Antonie Cellar and other VideoLAN developers manage to make x264 encode/decode truely multicore will be the day all opposition will be crushed.

What do you think of K-Lite CODEC PACK?
Great. Use it. Ditch iTunes, QuickTime and RealPlayer.

tried using two different programs ?

And instead of VD, use something like VLC Media Player. It has a much more attractive set of features, including but not limited to post processing before convertion to enhance quality and multi core support.

I hadn't thought of that, but I will have to research it a little. I'm sure it is possible, digital device control is already a reality with remotely connected camcorders. There has to be a way to accomplish that with the setup I suggested as well, because for the simple reason, I have read about people who use such setups in the US and Europe.

Maybe what I suggest is not feasible for most people, but for a hardcore geek, which I'm sure you are one of (just like me), it should be within the realms of reality.
 
hi guys tell me about matroska......that nhanc3 guy packs decent quality in this format.....
Its just an AWSSOME container. It can hold almost ANY codec within it, and you can hence get strange but awssome combos.

Imagine having MusePack audio and H.264 video in one container. Its not possible without matroska.

Matroska also has these insanely fast seek times, and supports a variety of subtitles.

Its even possible to have DVD-Menus in matroska videos.

Chapters are again damn common and easy to use on matroska.

Hi Gotham
do you know any non-linear editing soft like vdub for creating matroska container files. I dont require a mere conversion but need atleast some minimal editing.

Unfortunately I know none. Matroska is not supported to its fullest potential, and there are no menu making software yet. :cry:

Max you can do now is use avidemux or mkvtoolnix and add chapters, subtitles, etc. :!:

MKV supports OGM chapter files, but I have NO IDEA how thats significant. :(

And you can transcode audio and video seperately from different software and mux them together in MKV using mkvtoolnix. :)

You can even add srt tracks to video using mkvtoolnix. :)
