Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do I extract just the .exe or everything?
It’s important that you exact everything contained within the archive you downloaded. There are files in the /bin/ folder that are required for Easy h.264 to run.
Q: Where is the best place to extract the files on a more permanent basis?
Anywhere that doesn’t need permissions to run. Often “Program Files” needs higher privileges that the application does not yet take care of – thus causing running problems.
Q: I press encode and it instantly says it’s encoded!
Unfortunately, this is a bug down to the program either failing the conversion instantly – or not being able to find the produced tmp.bat file. Makes sure you have extracted *everything* within the archive and you’re running in Administrator mode.
Q: Does it only support 720p?
Currently, the application will output the same resolution it gets in on HD presets. For example, Extreme+ HD will output a 1080p file if the source file is 1080p.
