Thread: Full on 64bit Version

  1. #1

    Default Full on 64bit Version

    Since almost all new OS's are 64bit shouldn't we have a 64bit version of the software, Mezzmo runs fine as a 32bit app within Windows 2008r2 - but that fact that it is running in emulation mode means it's less efficient than it could be.

    So is there anyone else out there that would like a proper x64 version ?

    We'll consider this for a future version. Basically the most CPU intensive processes are scanning files and transcoding and these would benefit from native 64-bit the most, I believe. With transcoding - it's possible to compile a 64-bit of FFmpeg and use that instead of the stock one.

    Is it really just a consideration, rather than a focal point of development and planned move?

    We have several important features for Mezzmo that are higher priority. After all these are completed, then a 64-bit version will be considered.

    Do you have any kind of roadmap you could publicise? I realise its often hard to have something like that, but vague and obviously non-binding information?

    As far as major features go, first it'll be pre-transcoding and then burn-in subtitles along with being able to choose which video/audio/subtitle tracks to play on your device. That's pretty much as precise as we can be

    my personal opinion is :
    1. video/audio/subtitle
    2. burn-in subtitles
    3. pre-transcoding

    but thats because from what i can see samsung have by far the best support when it comes to file types.

    I gave this a try and can verify this does work and gave me a 10% performance boost transcoding videos. All I had to do was get the latest ffmpeg Windows executable here:
    http://ffmpeg.zeranoe.com/builds/

    Download the latest version under "64-bit Builds (Static)". Extract the ffmpeg.exe file in the archive and overwrite the C:\Program Files (x86)\Conceiva\Mezzmo\ffmpeg.exe with this file.

    This probably isn't supported by Conceiva but so far I haven't had any issues.

    This is the only benefit that would come from a 64bit app. But it doesn't require mezzmo to be 64bit. Don't see a reason to make Mezzmo 64 bit any time soon.

    If you want to test it out you should not overwrite the default ffmpeg. Just change the version you are pointing to in the transcoding settings window. (That way you can change it back easily).
