Anime Transcoding

Work in Progress

Due to problems with anime playback in my machine, sometimes I need to re-encode the anime episodes I watch. This page mentions tools, settings and articles useful for the task.


Transcoding is the direct digital-to-digital conversion of one encoding to another. This is usually done in cases where a target device (or workflow) does not support the format or has limited storage capacity that mandates a reduced file size, or to convert incompatible or obsolete data to a better-supported or modern format.

Transcoding is commonly a lossy process, introducing generation loss; however, transcoding can be lossless if the output is either losslessly compressed or uncompressed.[2] The process of transcoding into a lossy format introduces varying degrees of generation loss, while the transcoding from lossy to lossless or uncompressed is technically a lossless conversion because no information is lost; however, the process is irreversible and is more correctly known as destructive.

Windows 7 64-bit Driver Info

Windows 7 Logo.

Pinky's original OS was Windows Vista 32-bit. The OS was upgraded to Windows 7 64-bit and SP3 was applied. Many drivers were automatically applied, but some devices remained driverless. Officially, SONY won't offer Win7 64b drivers for this model. The following drivers were tried and found operative. Note that they are experimental settings and may not work in all cases.

Sony Firmware Extension Parser

Needed for an unrecognized ACPI device. Used the file SODOTH-00228472-1040.exe from another model.

Synaptics Touchpad

A driver is needed to access some features of the touchpad. Downloaded directly from Synaptics website.


The inertia setting was found to cause problems while dragging (it releases the object as you lift your finger from the touchpad), so it was deselected.

Graphics and Sound seems to be working Ok. Most other functions are operative, so I didn't install any other driver.

Note: Models used for reference: VGN-CR260FE, VGN-CR320E.

Code Example & Others

Lastly, a piece of code — a Turing Machine:

#include <iostream>
#define Z atoi(b[a++])
int main(int a,char**b){
	int c=a=1,d=0,e=2;

Thank you very much…
