-- autosave.lua
-- Periodically saves "watch later" data during playback, rather than only saving on quit.
-- This lets you easily recover your position in the case of an ungraceful shutdown of mpv (crash, power failure, etc.).
-- You can configure the save period by creating a "lua-settings" directory inside your mpv configuration directory.
-- Inside the "lua-settings" directory, create a file named "autosave.conf".
-- The save period can be set like so:
-- save_period=60

This gist shows you how to encode specifically to HEVC with ffmpeg's NVENC on supported hardware, with a two-pass profile and optional CUVID-based hardware-accelerated decoding.

Encoding high-quality HEVC content with FFmpeg - based NVENC encoder on supported hardware:

If you've built ffmpeg as instructed here on Linux and the ffmpeg binary is in your path, you can do fast HEVC encodes as shown below, using NVIDIA's NPP's libraries to vastly speed up the process.

Now, to do a simple NVENC encode in 1080p, (that will even work for Maxwell Gen 2 (GM200x) series), start with:

ffmpeg  -i <inputfile>  \
-filter:v hwupload_cuda,scale_npp=w=1920:h=1080:format=nv12:interp_algo=lanczos,hwdownload \
-c:v hevc_nvenc -profile main -preset slow -rc vbr_hq \ 

hi, and goodbye

The past few weeks has not been fun on IRC, the drama based on false information and assumptions has been insane. I've almost entirely been silent on the drama because I know the fallout that would happen if I spoke up.

A quick TLDR - I'm quitting all IRC development. KiwiIRC project lead, IRCv3 technical board, supporting the multitude of IRC networks, the lot.

Many people seem to think that I am supporting one side in everything that is going on, so just to be clear: I am not supporting any side of the current freenode drama - there is so much false information going around from everywhere that it is impossible to support anybody.

Woo freenode drama
