comment Double deinterlace with full motion - ffmpeg + yadif 50i-50p 60i-60p
@PeterCordes yes, as far as I can recall this is like this. Although in my case, ffmpeg did also double frames, resulting in 4x framerate, so I needed to drop every other frame after deinterlacing (because I was getting 120fps stream which is actually just 60fps with duplicates)

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…

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)

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.

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.
