Many of you use my script 770-encode to transcode videos for your
Nokia Internet Tablet. This name is obviously an anachronism, so to go
along with the imminent availability of the N810, it's now been
renamed "tablet-encode" and moved to a Garage project:


It shares the project with mediaserv (my web-based on-demand
transcoding solution) and hopefully other stuff in future (suggestions
and little sub-projects welcome).

tablet-encode v2.00 includes many new features:

   * Rename to tablet-encode.
   * Include optional "vrcbufsize" and "vrcmaxrate" (suggested by sveinan).
   * Limit video bitrate to maximum of preset and equivalent bitrate of
     original file, when applicable (provided by Benjamin Reveille).
   * Do the same for audio (suggested by mplawner).
   * Modify "--sample" option to allow to chose sample length (provided by
     Benjamin Reveille).
   * Add "--index" option to force index generation (provided by Benjamin
   * Add "--list" option to allow processing multiple files (provided by
     Benjamin Reveille).
   * Add support for command lines like `cp', so that multiple files and a
     directory can be specified.
   * Bump up quality on good/best/mplayer presets.

Of particular usefulness (IMHO) is the new ability to process multiple files.

Feedback and comments are, as ever, welcome.

Thanks in advance,
