  1. It’s been a while since I started using this guide on encoding XD Zeust-san I was just wondering is there a way to change the output format of Minix264? I mean mkv was great but if in some case that I want an mp4 format, is there a way to do that? There is no problem with using MeGUI for the mp4 format but what I’m after is the “queuing” ability of Minix264.

  2. zeust senpai, i have downloaded kimi to boku series season 1 and 2, but i saw the opening and ending seperated from main video. how can i back and mux the opening and ending video to main video? thanks zeust..

    1. Roughly it will be something like that:
      – Cut (separate) the episode video in 3 parts.
      1- Intro (Part 1)
      2- Episode (Part 3)
      3- Preview (Part 5)
      – Encode the OP and ED (given by the encoder for OC) at the same CRF what the episode has been encoded with. (If the CRFs are already same, then no need to encode the OP and ED)
      1- OP (Part 2)
      2- ED (Part 4)
      Finally mux the five parts with mkvmerge. (Part1 + Part2 + Part3 + Part4 + Part5)
      Usually mkvmerge will trim the video according to keyframes, so when the encoders try to trim the videos when they MAKE an OC encode from a simple source, trimming doesn’t go accurately because usually the keyframes are not at the right time-stamp.
      However, if you are going to MAKE a simple encode from an OC source, you won’t need to worry about that (for 99%) because when the encoder made it OC, he must have made sure to have the keyframes are at the right place. (if encoder wants to be someone like me one day, that is) XD
      I’m not sure if there are any tools or programs that will do it all automatically but you can ask in aborwx’s post. He has gathered some variety of tools. Or maybe some other people might help you out there.

        1. Just follow my guides and for settings just see the settings I use for anime here.
          Like ‘Gintama Enshousen’ etc.

  3. How can I set Audio to Japanese language as main? I’m using K-Lite Codec Pack and followed the instructions given by the guides…..seriously it burns my ear drums hearing their english voices…..please help if possible……thanks

    1. use mkvmerge GUI. input your video. change the default track flag to “yes” for the japanese audio and to “no” for the english audio. if you don’t like the english audio, you can drop it by uncheck it. and then mux it.
      note: it is possible for non-OC video.
      *sorry for my bad english

  4. i wonder if you not heard about V.A.F.E from minitheatre..
    it’s really cool tools to encode, make a chapter, add watermark, etc. and you can batch encodes with one preset at once (for encode only. make + add a chapter and add watermark only can do for one encode). for dual audio, you can change default audio too or just encode one.
    i use it and love it. but had stopped update, so must update X264 codec and mkvmerge manually.

  5. Hi there! I am VERY new here, plan to stick around for the long run and will be donating to the site. This may be the wrong place to post this, but I am having trouble with batches on your batch torrent list. It’s the ones that say that they were updated 7 weeks ago. For some reason when I try to download, on my end it cannot open the batch because:

    ‘null’ could not be opened:
    Error reading torrent file ‘C:\Users\Guyver01\AppData\Roaming\Azureus\torrents\[Hi10]_Pani_Poni_Dash_[480p].torrent – Error reading torrent: BDecoder: invalid input data, ‘e’ missing from end of list

    I hope that someone can help me out with this or direct me to the right place to ask. Thanks!

  6. Thanks, but I think that this is a reoccurring problem on all the links to the torrents that say that were updated 7 weeks ago because I just tried this one and I get the same message:

    ‘null’ could not be opened:
    Error reading torrent file ‘C:\Users\Guyver01\AppData\Roaming\Azureus\torrents\[Hi10]_Mobile_Suit_Gundam_SEED_HD_Remaster_[BD_720p].torrent – Error reading torrent: BDecoder: invalid input data, ‘e’ missing from end of list

    Also, this one:

    ‘null’ could not be opened:
    Error reading torrent file ‘C:\Users\Guyver01\AppData\Roaming\Azureus\torrents\[Hi10]_Mobile_Suit_Gundam_SEED_HD_Remaster_[BD_720p].torrent – Error reading torrent: BDecoder: invalid input data, ‘e’ missing from end of list

    Pretty much all the ones with the Modified 7 weeks ago tag.

    1. Yeah and I’m discussing this matter privately with the rest of the team.

      1) Somebody has a backup from before 2014-07-03 we can restore from (preferably an encoder as an anon like yourself might try to slip in a bad torrent aka a torrent with a virus in it).
      2) Everybody fixes their own torrents since I don’t have the time to do that again (I need to fix my server ones too).
      3) We get rid of it since only a handful of us maintain it anyways (ie people forget to add their torrents to the folder).

  7. It seems like a tedious job, seeing how many of these have the same status. I guess I will have to wait until you guys are able to get them back up. I appreciate your help. Thanks!

  8. Just had my first trial run for encoding and I am not sure what I’m doing wrong. I was kinda hoping for a lower file size.

    1. You can join this server of Hi10 and find me by my username. You can contact any staff member there and don’t get all emotional if I don’t reply back because I’ve got a busy schedule these days. There is never a reason I would avoid anyone; I love to discuss with people.

  9. Hey zeust, a while back I read up on Aborwx’s guides on here and found them to be a good read. Checking back now, it appears his dropbox has been disabled. Do you or someone else at Hi10 happen to have a copy of his guides that can be reposted?
