My first question is why are you not following the simpler instructions. The scripts automatically configure those settings for you. If you want, you can just run the script and save it.

Second, the script I provided was only for 2.5 and not 2.6. If you want the 2.6 settings, do what I said above because I see little need to upload it.

Third, if you really want to upload/save settings somewhere, go to C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\avidemux\pluginSettings\x264\1

That is good, as long as you figured it out in the end. Also, sorry if I sounded condescending. I did not mean to be angry at you or anything like that, but for anyone, that needs help with following the guide or has comments, feel free to leave comments here or contact me ingame.

4. Resize to correct dimensions for osu!
Wait 30s and then press filters in the top rightish area, and select the Resize filter from the rightmost list.
Uh.. I did until 3 but kinda lost on 4.
The problem is that I don't see anything in the top rightish area.


Help plz?

That is strange, it didn't automatically change to H.264....
Okay, as a temporary fix, under video output, change that to H.264 (forgot the text exactly but it should be one of the top few options) and then the Filters section under it will light up.

Edit: The scripts for 2.6 have been changed to Tinypy Project files. For some reason that I don't know, support for the old files was removed, and SpiderMonkey Project files was giving me issues.

I wish it compressed more....my original file was about 54Mb and compressed 53Mb....I don't want to resize it to 640x360 (or whatever small resolution) D: It's 848x480 >.< and i have 2.6.1 version for 64bit windows, any way to make it smaller?

To compress it more, change the quality setting in the configure section under video


If I remember correctly, the script sets the quality at 26, which is okay for TV size. If you have something 3min, you will probably need 30 or above (If I remember correctly, every increase by 5 is half the size). If you have 53 at 26, then 32-34 should be okay... (it will probably look bad though sadly)

I have my NCED video in MKV format, then I used MKVCleaver to extract the video portion and convert to .avi format. I checked that it plays properly in various media players (the .avi file), but it is not being opened properly in avidemux. It detects 0 frames and wont even play the avi file. How should I go about converting my mkv file? Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance.

Most recent BD releases are in 10 bit format, and avidemux can't open them. Also, there are some weird encodes that don't work with avidemux either (I have a few), so fix this reencode it to 8bit

If you don't know how to do this, get ffmpeg and run a .bat file with this line
FOR %%A IN (*.mkv) Do (ffmpeg -i "%%A" -vcodec libx264 -crf 18 -acodec copy "re_%%A")

Nice tutorial. True with your settings problematic to convert video files for over 4 minutes long. I found the best settings for video files larger than 4 minutes ( I lost them, excuse me for that, I'll try to remember them, and then I will share them).

For 4min plus, it really depends on what the item is.

If is some mv for a vocaloid song, it probably doesn't have any super complex animations in it (unless you map something like Aria), so I have used quality lvl 20 for that even at 3-4min. However for live performance, I usually turn the quality to 32, and try an arrangement of filters. However, I haven't found any great filters for rl though.

Okay I'm stuck at 4 too.

After i run the script and waited for 30s there's no Filters that appear in the rightmost top area



And i'm having trouble at the .xml file part..i already put the .xml file with the lines on it in the x264 folder but there's no "quality 5,etc..." that appears

Woops, I was supposed to say top-left not top right (You can see it in your picture under Video (with MPEG-4 AVC and configure)).

Also, for the .xml file, you had to keep the original name that went with the file, but I don't feel like explaining that. Just follow the part of the guide not in the spoilerbox.

Thanks popner, though I did notice that in one of the Chinese guides, someone had some other video settings posted.

well, my compressed video is 297MB, while uncompressed 720p is 295..

a 15 min miku medley on MMD..

Well... 15min things usually mean lower res and lower nitrate to meet requirements. Try 360p with 32 for quality. Feel free to host a good version of the video elsewhere to give your players something better to see.

I compress a video
Uncompress size is 59 mb
then compress size is 22 mb but when i insert it in the editor why it's freezing or delaying sometimes ?

Well if your computer can't process the amount of data the video is giving it, the video will stutter (also osu!'s video playback is not very optimized)
