If you are interested in having automated MPEG4 conversion built into TVAP, instead of requiring a user-defined post process batch file as is currently done, please chime in here. A recently released Source Forge project called fflib.net makes it relatively easy to add this capability to TVAP. The advantage would be simplicity. However if you are already using the post process batch method there will be no advantage. In fact the price for simplicity is limited configurability. You will not have all the parameters and options for fine tuning conversions that you have when using HandBrake in a post process batch. fflib.net is somewhat of a black box. There is almost no documentation. However in my initial testing it has converted to .mp4 with H264 video and AAC audio, .avi with MPEG4 video and mp3 audio, and FLV. You can set the video size and video- and audio-bitrates --- or you can let them default to automatic settings which seem halfway reasonable at least. In one test I converted an hour long .mpg, which was generated by VideoReDo performing a QSF on a .tivo file. The output file was a .avi and I sent it back to my TiVo via pyTivo. It was quite acceptable. I don't know if the .mp4's it produces are iPod compatible. If someone will tell me the video format and bitrates I will convert a small .mp4 and get it to them for test on their iPod. My current thought is to have this capability as an automatic option in TVAP. If the fflib.net DLL file is installed in the run-time directory, TVAP will enable the option. The current post process batch capability would still be there in either case. I would add a button to pop up a configuration page where you would select video size, file fomat and bitrates, or defaults. Let me know if you're interested.
