Back to work

Wow! It have been a long time, seems 1 post / year is not quite a reasonable post rate for a blog, but whatever.

This year was quite busy for me, meaning almost no time for dev (other than for work)… I wish I could pull out the new iPodME quickly, but unfortunately I got bored with the UI stuff : the universal mac/win/linux command-line iPodME is done with all the neat presets (even with a custom XML preset system), multiple soft subtitles support (done correctly this time, with proper character encoding conversions) and hard subtitle integration with no need for plugins, faster encoding thanks to mencoder optmizations, etc. I even got all the needed tools (mencoder, mp4box etc) to build properly on mac. But building a nice UI takes times (especially on MacOS), and I can’t find the motivation to do it for now since it’s been a long time I’m not using iPodME anymore for my own purpose, and I’m unsure about going the Mac AppStore way (hey, I like open source-ness and free softwares). Still don’t know which way to go and for now, it’s on hold (sorry guys).

But then a small update to say that I’m now on github:
You may see there my open-sourced works from now on, from my work and my free time. iPodME may goes here someday…

    Ability to add so called “hard subtitles” would be really appreciated. I use iPodME since I got my first 1st gen iPod touch (it was 4-5 years ago) and it’s phenomenal programme, the only one I use for encoding movies. I hope you’re gonna find some time and willingness to carry on your work. And I hope it will happen soon, my iOS devices are waiting! 🙂 Greetings from Poland! Konrad.

    One more thing. Why iPodME in 2.4 version does not use VobSub? I really really want to paste subtitles into a movie and v.2.4 doesn’t load vobsub. Any help? 🙂

    Since v2.0, I removed the hard subtitles in ipodme in favor of soft subtitles. As for now, you need to use the older versions to burn subtitles in the movie.

    Hi Noda,

    Congrats for building a splendid piece of software, small, fast and very reliable. I have been using it extensively to convert my avi’s for my iPod/iPad and searched all over the web to find something similar after iOS 5 did’t display the subtitles anymore….Alas, to no avail.

    Thank you very much if at any time you’ll find time to update it.

    Best of luck!

    When I convert my videos using iPodMe, it always gives me an error saying that the video is not compatible with my iPhone4. Is there a fix for this? Thanks

    Hey Noda!

    Is there a way we could use the command prompt version if you don’t feel like doing an UI? Thanx!

    I love iPodMe, I just wish I could motivate you to keep improving the software (which is already great). I used it a lot for converting all my videos for my iPod, iPhone and iPad. It works great, fast, easy to use and it just works!

    UI? I think the current UI works great for now 🙂

    Hope you will reconsider your thoughts whether or not to continue working on it. Thanks!
