    Sorenson Squeeze codec problems between MainConcept & x264

    I compressed a 10 minute video today using Squeeze 10. I'm unable to compress using Sorenson 10 standard x264 without crashing on my computer but MainConcept H.264 works fine.  I did the compression using the MainConcept H.264 codec and immediately notice a small amount of lip sync problem.

    I moved the ProRes file over to my my MacBook Pro where x264 works, compressed it and the lip sync was dead on.  

     I worked with Sorenson tech support most of last week trying to get the x264 codec to work on my windows Z800, the HP workstation works with the MainConcept H.264 codec, all 24 processors at 99% for a very quick job, but the lip sync, a noticeable few frames off makes it unusable.

     My Sorenson settings are never use CUDA, as advised by tech support.

    Re: Sorenson Squeeze codec problems between MainConcept & x264

    I´m doing x264 encodes all the time, there is a quicktime bug when encoding to movs, maybe you have ran into that one, encode to mp4 should work well, to encode to movs you might need to use a drive smaller than 1 tb as the target drive, I have an old 256 gb drive especially assigned for this.

    Re: Sorenson Squeeze codec problems between MainConcept & x264

    Thanks, but my problem is not being able to compress H.264 for youtube or vimeo on my newly aquired Z800, the error message that comes up during the x264 codec compression is "This application has requested runtime to terminate in an unusal way. Please contact the application's support team for more information"

    When I switch the compression codec over to MainConcept H.264 the compression works but the lipsync is off.  I'd like to get x264 working mainly because it does a better job of compression over MainConcept.  

    My fallback is to do all of the compressions on my Macbook Pro where x264 works fine.

    Re: Sorenson Squeeze codec problems between MainConcept & x264

    The quicktime bug is related to both x264 and h264 , if you have it also with mp4 ( I didn´t see that answered ) it´s not that bug of course

    Thanks again, yes I tried it on a smaller drive, 500GB USB 3.0 and received the same error.

    Yes mp4, I'm encoding to H.264 for YouTube and Vimeo, trying to use the x264 codec inside Sorenson Squeeze 10.

    Re: Sorenson Squeeze codec problems between MainConcept & x264

    Thanks, is it one of the default Youtube profiles delivered together with Squeeze or is it customized or downloaded from the preset site.

    If the latter, could you do a test with one of the default presets , maybe YouTube_720p

    Re: Sorenson Squeeze codec problems between MainConcept & x264

    Thank you, yes the YouTube 720 x264 preset worked but only with the audio set to aacPlus v2, with the default aac audio codec it got 3/4s of the way and stopped.  I then tried the YouTube 1080p preset and received the same Run Time error as before.

    Re: Sorenson Squeeze codec problems between MainConcept & x264

    Thxs, so this points towards the audio, is it a standard 2 ch 48 16 file you are loading to Squeeze, a QT ref or something else .

    Re: Sorenson Squeeze codec problems between MainConcept & x264

    Thank you again, I've always exported out of Avid for Sorenson a QuickTime Movie file, I keep the QT movie files and compressed finals in their own folders.

    Re: Sorenson Squeeze codec problems between MainConcept & x264

    Ok, and that is a sas export out of avid so not a customized export.

    Have you tried to do a video and audio mixdown and replace before sending out the sas export just to exclude that possible error.

    Re: Sorenson Squeeze codec problems between MainConcept & x264

    I just tried a youtube 1080p with the audio compression off, I deseslected the audio codec.  I received the same error.

    Re: Sorenson Squeeze codec problems between MainConcept & x264
