7z is certainly not I/O-bound even in fast mode.

@Kenny83 Don't worry. Most Apple users are brainwashing themselves (and other people)

>"It took many hours of screaming at the computer in frustration, but eventually it worked." — can you, please, elaborate, what caused screaming and how did you solve it? Because I plan to do similar thing :)

OS X can be used inside VM, it the work doesn't involve some low-level hardcore stuff…

comment How to create a bootable USB Windows OS using Mac OS X
There is no way to do this, at least if trying to use Windows 8.1. (All answers posted here at the moment are not working)

the most optimal is to use CRF mode without any additional constraints.

comment What is a good way to batch re-encode mp3 files from a higher bitrate to a lower bitrate in Windows?
@Moab converting to WAV in between is the same or worse as doing it directly, because if you use low bit depth (16 or 24 bits per sample), you add additional quantization noise — this is awful. Of course, if a crappy software does it worse when doing it directly, it simply should not be used for this task…

comment How do I merge MP3 files without re-encoding?
@AugustusFrancis there is no proof for being really lossless. The fact you don't hear any difference is irrelevant here.

comment Double deinterlace with full motion - ffmpeg + yadif 50i-50p 60i-60p
Currently I have only one such video which is not supposed for sharing, but I may shoot another one sooner or later (my DSLR camera has option of recording in 60i), and send example of both original (interlaced) video and processed one.

comment Double deinterlace with full motion - ffmpeg + yadif 50i-50p 60i-60p
I don't have time to search how to (properly) make it happen with ffmpeg — but it clearly has the effect in VLC player (while playing 60i video & having Yadif x2 enabled). looks like ffmpeg has a bug — it always duplicates frames, so I get either 120fps or 60fps and in either case I must drop every 2nd frame, which is kind of "hacky" and ffmpeg has no clear way of dropping every 2nd frame

comment Double deinterlace with full motion - ffmpeg + yadif 50i-50p 60i-60p
This is wrong. Yadif can interpolate missing lines and create real 50fps video from 50i, if this is indeed real 50i video (no duplicated fields — i.e. 2 fields from one frame).

comment FFmpeg error when doing first pass of WebM encoding: Unrecognized option 'auto-alt-ref'
@slhck I used ffmpeg with my script, which does 2-pass encoding trying to fit in a given file size: github.com/magicgoose/webm-buddy/blob/master/convert-to-webm.py

@slhck it's in russian language... and not really a complete guide. just some examples for people who can guess everything from them. Maybe I will write another guide at some day.

comment FFmpeg error when doing first pass of WebM encoding: Unrecognized option 'auto-alt-ref'
@slhck of course, now I understand. I just used a template from an online guide for creating WebMs and (obviously) were knowing almost nothing about ffmpeg. But it turned out, one needs to understand what's going on, otherwise it won't work. :D
