The WDL sources are kinna iffy so often hence instead of doing them in x264, I am again switching back to x265 codec so that rips are done according to the quality of the source.
Air your opinion plz
Here is an elaboration of my opinion with help from ERO 🙂
Network movies WDL : Netflix, Amzn Prime Etc – x264 for greater acceptance and good sources.
Mainstream Movies WDL : x265 as BR releases within next few days, unless there is a AMZN WDL which will be done in x264 ( take example of The Way Back , Bloodshot & The gentlemen – when a substandard source in WEBrip or WDL came it was done in x265 but as soon as high quality AMZN-WEB-DLs came out I again did them in x264 🙂
TV Shows : all the TV shows that i do which are currently running will be done in 720p x264 if at all a show is done in x265 then it will be 1080p – the sources would always be WDLs , though they come roughly 6 hrs after the WEBrip or HDTV sources but they are far far better, hence x264 for all BR and AMZN or NF WDL sources
Hope this ll make you all happy 🙂
I really loved x 264 as my blueray player couldnt read x265. Anyway, i still dont mind x 265 if the majority are all for it, I’m just watching it on my laptop. 😀
Please keep x264!
for mainstream movies only we ll be using x265 , simply coz x265 is very efficient in doing justice to the substandard quality of various WDLs
all the other standard quality content will be in x264 🙂
Hope you must have noticed that as soon as proper AMZN WDL of Bloodshot came i did it in x264 🙂
The Gentlemen will also be posted soon in x264 🙂 its being machined at the moment.
May be people dont care about me and this site , they just download and pooff, But i am all for you folks 🙂
Some support on their part would be great but no one 🙁
Keep replying to this thread and air your opinion plz
A simple Yes Please for me.
There are multiple WDL categories:
– TV series: WDL would the best source for a very long time until BR season release (often over a year later)
– Mainstream Movies: WDL is followed by BR within a very short period (often days later)
– Network Movies: These will never have BR and their final release is WDL (e.g. Netflix Movies)
In case of mainstream movies, WDL is an interim release and x265 would be fine, IMHO.
nice of you to clear it , I wasnt so specific.
These are the movie WDLs I was referring to , I have decided to do them in x265
TV shows i am still inclined to x264 for BR sources & with sources like NTb, NTG, GHOSTS, Bamboozle etc which are great quality may be x264 or x265
NF and prime movies well for them I am still thinking as their sources are generally good quality so our standard of encoding in x264 will be able to do proper justice , but I am still in the process of giving it some more thought.
TBH, in case of mainstream movies, I think WDL can be missed altogether as the BR will come often after a few days.
well for a few months , I can say No BR releases gonna be there owing to the COVID-19.
but I am ready to accept that ( less work ;))
