|Is it just me or does basically every encoder decrease the quality, increase the file size, and completely suck? This really needs to be said. Video encoding on all fronts just completely stinks. Too many formats, too many different compression codecs, too much to update, DVD players may as well have expected lifetime of 6 months because the codecs get out of date...|
AVS video converter and Xilisoft just both completely suck for converting to FLV, MKV, AVI or any other popular format. You guys who make those programs are the worst programmers known to mankind. Come on, make another ridiculous format that doesn't work properly and makes a million DVD players obsolete.
Take a note out of the Photoshop book (and learn something useful for a change). The web accepts 3 image formats: JPG, GIF, and PNG. And that's pretty much all. Each has only its own native compression formats (not 100 different plugged in, ineffective compression methods). DVD player should also accept a maximum of 3 formats with only native compression formats.
So my question: Why should I have to study the nuances of video encoding just to play a video in a DVD player, and why don't all you video codec programmers look for real jobs and stop building new floors on a skyscraper? Bloody idiots
