Encoding with Cyko
If any of you want to know how to encode the way that I do, then follow these instructions:
1) go here and scroll down to "Cyko released /Cyko_03_31_14.7z":
This is a direct link to it: http://sourceforge.net/projects/cyko...14.7z/download
2) Next you need Handbrake CLI, go here and the type that suits you:
3) When you extract Cyko_03_31_14.7z, there will be a folder titled Cyko with the files. Next open HandbrakeCLI zip file and copy those files into the Cyko folder.
Cyko is basically a program with some presets installed on it which
makes it much easier to encode. The settings that I use are:
Target Quality: 23
Target Height: depends on the video
Target Audio: 48
The Preset that I choose is "slow" which is basically medium quality.
Tunes: for dramas, I use film.
As for Profiles, I never touch that.
It should look like this:
PS: I know that there is a newer/updated version, but I didn't like it much because it took too long to encode.
