X264 Gets Bluray Encoding

X264 Gets Bluray Encoding

From Bluray to DVD made easy and free with x264.

The developers of the excellent free x264 encoder have developed a took to encode Bluray movies to DVD or DVD-9 quickly and easily with a high level of compression and quality. They have included a few samples to start playing with courtesy of an unlikely collaborator – Microsoft.

“What’s left before we have a fully free software Blu-ray creation toolkit?  Audio is already dealt with; AC3 audio (aka Dolby Digital), the format used in DVD, is still supported by Blu-ray, and there are many free software AC3 encoders.  The primary missing application is a free software Blu-ray authoring tool, to combine the video and audio streams to create a Blu-ray file structure with the menus, chapters, and so forth that we have all come to expect.  But the hardest part is dealt with: we can now create compatible video and audio streams.”

So all you need is a free software AC3 encoder and you are ready to go. DVD’s created should be compatible with DVD players.
