  1. I guess I agree with Heiki-kun using flac audio.

    Moreover, if the source of the bluray have lossless audio formats such as True HD or DTS-HD Master Audio.

    Thank you for the release of “FMP” with 10bit format.

  2. doki is right, it just depends on your source.
    If you are encoding from a DVD, then I agree that you’re better off keeping the original AC3. But if it’s Blu-ray source, I can’t see why one would encode the audio to AC3, since it’s not really a great codec compression-wise.

  3. Good encode, better than DHD’s at least.

    Also one question, I’m not expert at encoding, but isn’t CRF 12 a bit overkill for such old series?

    • Thanks!
      I know some will say there’s no need for crf 12, but I really wanted to a great encode since I absolutely love this series. Also, it doesn’t take much disk space if you do it right, so I guess no one will complain.

      • Yeah the size is quite small for that setting (not to mention dual-audio with FLAC 24-bit) and that’s a good thing. Glad FMP is in good hands. Keep up the good work 🙂
