Hello,
(forgive me if this has been asked before)

first of all let me tell you I love this program with a passion.
I have an HTPC that thanks to this program runs pretty smoothly.
I really enjoy the the fact that this program helps me keep my system
almost completely automated.

What I would like to do next on my system is have a program that would re-encode
the various video files on my system so that they take up less space but lose
as little quality as possible. my system is hooked to a full HD 3D television.
also I would like to have the files encoded in a type that utilizes all the features of
MCM especially having it embed the meta data into the video file. the main program i use
to run my media is XBMC so the file type would also have to be comparable with that
program also.

So what i want to know is this,
What software is best to achieve this?
What video file type should i convert everything to?
What other suggestions should i consider?

Please let me thank you all for your time.
Also, Thanks to all the people and Pete that work and keep this program great.

Have A Great Time!

I think ffmpeg is the best choice for the encoding. Lots of command line options and very flexible, however I'm not sure how to get mcm to automate this. There are post processing options, however I believe that's only for post-metadata downloading, not post-video downloading.

I'm not sure if we are talking about the same thing.
