Re: Toy Story 2 BR rip won't open

Yes on second thoughts subtitles make more sense, especially as the default behaviour of makemkv is to pack all sub tracks into the file unless it's set up not to.

Re: Toy Story 2 BR rip won't open

Probably too many audio streams for ffmpeg to handle.

Code: Select all

matroska,webm @ 0x102106c00] Too many streams
Open mkv in MkvmergeGUI deselect audio tracks you don't need and remux to a new file. Then feed the new file into Handbrake.

Re: Advanced Bluray/HDDVD Workflow & Features Discussion

@ Nephillmator


Give this thread a read. http://forum.handbrake.fr/viewtopic.php ... s+subtitle


You need to get the Video, Audio and IDX/SUB streams into an mkv using mkvmerge and feed that into HandBrake which should recognise the Vobsubs and give you a burn in option.

Re: Settings for Zune HD

Blargh, I don't understand what that means. Basically you think I'd be better off using Apple Universal?
Yes, that's what I meant, as any transcoding will result in a drop in quality.

I also tried using the 'High Profile' setting instead of the 'Apple Universal' one. Not sure if it makes any difference. This is just conjecture as I don't own the device, but looking at the specifications on this page http://www.zune.net/en-us/products/zunehd/zunehd16/techspecs.htm (specifically t...

Re: BD encode taking far too long

3 to 5 fps on a 110 minute 24fps movie is roughly equal to 9 to 14 hrs encode time not 64 hours. You should upgrade to the nightly build, it's more accurate in estimating encoding time remaining. The one thing you can do to reduce encode time drastically is reduce the resolution to 720p. Try a test ...

Re: Bluray encoding + DTS sound question

Video - Mpeg4
[ ] Audio - DTS-HD Losless

Do I check both of those boxes or just the latter?

Just leave the last one (DTS 3/2+1) checked. It's the lossless track that causes the problems.

Re: Old Fart needs new brain !

If you are saying that fwd/rew skip are unavailable when playing back on the WD TV media player, it's because the High Profile preset defaults to the M4V file extension, simply rename the file extension to a MP4 and these functions should then be available. Better yet, the next time you try to encod...

Re: AC3 passthru is picked up as AAC

I don't know about the WDTV live but my original WDTV will not see the AC3 track in an MP4.
This is the main reason I encode to MKV when targeting the device.

I agree with the previous posters, a proper encode log is now a must.

Yes that's correct I use 100 for the Y value as a fudge so I don't have to work out both X and Y it helps me if I'm dealing with a variety of different source material.

Yes the command line tool MP4Box can indeed add the correct PAR back to an MP4/M4V file without the need for re-encoding. The syntax is : MP4Box -par 1=X:Y YourVideo.mp4 The 1 is the track number of the video track we assume its 1. X = ((desired display aspect * pixel height) / pixel width) * 100 Y ...
