ive been working on this for a while

it lets you measure the time it takes your processor to encode video to different video codecs, it simply times the amount of time it takes to prep and encode a shotcut project file that has 4K video with some text overlay and some awesome music in flac by GUNSHIP

  • bench.x264.py Encoding 3840x2160p24 4K Shotcut Project using qmelt to x264 with Slow Preset and 16 CRF
  • bench.x265.py Encoding 3840x2160p24 4K Shotcut Project using qmelt to x265 with Slow Preset and 16 CRF
  • bench.vp9.py todo


because mp4 is outdated, flac and mkv is the future


this should test cpu/ram and ssd/hdd and the results are in seconds

the below scores are average of 5 runs
please note that these systems are not benchmark systems and are real world

This Benchmark is based on Shotcut and MLT open source project
which you can find at https://www.shotcut.org/


  • choco install msys2 -y or get it here
  • C:\tools\msys64\msys2_shell.cmd
  • pacman -S gcc mingw-w64-x86_64-winpthreads-git mingw-w64-x86_64-libwinpthread-git binutils coreutils yasm git base-devel p7zip
  • git clone https://chromium.googlesource.com/webm/libvpx && cd libvpx
  • ./configure --target=x86_64-win64-gcc --disable-docs && make -j16
  • 7z a libvpx-git-win64.7z *.exe /usr/bin/msys-2.0.dll /usr/bin/msys-gcc_s-seh-1.dll /usr/bin/msys-stdc++-6.dll

tip (to compile newer builds)

  • make clean && git pull


  • ./ffmpeg.exe -i source.mkv -pix_fmt yuv420p workfile.y4m
  • ./vpxenc.exe -w 1280 -h 720 --row-mt=1 --tile-columns=6 --auto-alt-ref=1 --lag-in-frames=25 --aq-mode=0 --threads=16 --target-bitrate=3000 --cpu-used=0 -o test.webm workfile.y4m


Currently, the improved MT encoder works in 1-pass/2-pass good quality mode encoding at speed 0, 1, 2, 3 and 4 and row-mt=1 must be enabled

Finally my Ryzen 1700X can show its prowess, it now uses ~80% instead of 25% lol

  • nano C:\tv.lftp
  • Change D:\path\to\key to `C:\deluge.key``
  • Change sftp://deluge:dummy@hostname:22 to your server (dummy is required even for ssh keys)
  • Change /home/remote to /home/deluge/autodl
  • Change /cygdrive/d/local to where you want to download the files like /cygdrive/d/tv
