Rokoding started as a post on the Roku forum board around December 2010. A few of us members were discussing the best methods for encoding our dvd/blu-ray movies for playback on the Roku XDS. There was alot of confusion back then as many people were new to the idea encoding. Reading a 20 plus page thread didn't make it any easier as many people chimed in with misinformation. I was very passionate about encoding for the Roku and really wanted to help others figure it out as well, so I started Rokoding.

As the new year approches, I have decided that is time for me to leave the site in order to pursue other interest. I don't want to see Rokoding disapear, so I'm looking for someone interested in taking over ownership of the site. I would prefer someone who is passionate about video encoding for the Roku and keeping the site up as a free and helpful resource. Ownership means you get the website, hosting, domain name, gmail account and all files and documentation. if you are interested, send me an email (click here) explaining why you are interested in taking over and where you see the site going under your ownership.

I made a few updates to the tuned (Animation & Film) guides today.

- The 1080p and 720p .h264 level has been changed from 4.1 to 4.0. This will allow for better playback compatibility for iPad's and Android tablets.

- I updated subtitle instructions for all 720p guides. Handbrake now resizes PGS subtitles when burning them into the movie.

I have been getting questions about the Roku 4 and what settings to use for encoding video. I don't have one and I have not really researched it yet myself. My assumption from looking at the tech spec's is that the Rokoding guides will work for encoding 1080p (and below) h.264 video for playback on the Roku 4. So, the video's you encoded for your Roku 3 and below should work fine. I have not experimented with h.265 nor do I have access to 2160p or 4320p video. Your 4k TV should upscale the video for you and from I have seen in the stores, they do a pretty good job.
