Re: I need to split a file into chunks...

Thanks for that suggestion. I guess I may have posted this in the wrong topic - I'm after a little OT advice. I have some Handbrake/MKV files I want to submit to a developer for testing. I can't re-create the files as I don't have the source. So I guess my question is, is it valid to split an existi...

I need to split a file into chunks...

I'd like to know if it's valid to do the following. I have a number of video files I want to send partial samples of the file. I know that tools like MKVMerge will create chunks from an MKV file, but I'm looking for a way of splitting off a chunk from the original file. Is it valid to create say 50 ...

What's Best Practice: matching fps to screen refresh

Hi, I'm trying to work out what's 'Best Practice' to minimise telecine problems. My screen is driven at 50Hz, and most of my media is from Blu-Ray rips - so 23.97fps. Some of my media is at 29.97fps and some is at 25fps. I know that to avoid telecine, I need to get the fps matching the screen refres...

Re: [Known issue] [MacGUI] Quitting from the Dock icon fails

Also, I chose "When Done: Shut Down Computer" in Preferences and set HB rendering. At completion of the job, HB starts the shutdown but then won't quit itself - the logout/shutdown is cancelled.

Re: Can't transcode Torchwood Bluay - WVC1

It comes up with 'Err-03' when I start to play the main episodes. It plays the extra material OK. It's an LG 370. I've found other forums with people complaining of not being able to play this content.

Can't transcode Torchwood Bluay - WVC1

I'm trying to transcode my Torchwood Bluray disks and have a problem: - It won't play on my Bluray player - I've RIPped the files with AnyDVD to try to transcode them - VLC Player won't play the video from the M2TS file - Audio is OK - Handbrake (SVN 3036, 64bit) reports [11:45:20] hb_init: checking...

Re: [SVN2773] Random Crash with Snow Leopard - Not with SVN2829

I tried SVN2829 with some of the problem BluRay sources and all three completed successfully. The OS has also been upgraded to 10.6.1 - maybe that's the fix... ? If I have any further issues I'll report them back to this thread.

[SVN2773] Random Crash with Snow Leopard

Hi, I recently upgraded to 10.6 and the 64bit build of HB SVN 2773. I'm seeing random crashes whilst rendering files. I've installed 10.5 on a second drive and confirmed that the SVN 2773 build works with 10.5. I've run auto-update and it tells me that I'm up to date. Here is the crash report... Pro...

Re: Advanced Bluray/HDDVD Workflow & Features Discussion

Forgive me if this is a dumdum question... I just compiled the latest Handbrake SVN and it <APPEARS> to be ripping the my test BR Movie .m2ts quite happily. I had a poke around the Picture options and could see video and hear audio, so it appears that everything is being de-coded correctly... I foll...

Re: Necessary feedback on the forums (Got a gripe? Keep it here)

I'll add my bit... I sorta understand what the original poster is talking about - I've watched a couple of users slapped down. Buuuttt... almost invariably they were either being stupid, unnecessarily obtuse and difficult or just plain un-helpful! How many times have we seen threads locked for provi...

Re: 0.9.2 always crashes when converting files

PS... I converted a DVD with HB on the MacPro successfully last night. I also tried to use my iMac to convert one of the files with Handbrake and the iMac locked hard a couple of hours into the render. Reading an earlier post, the iMac cooling may be the problem (it's VERY hot here in Melbourne at t...

0.9.3 always crashes when converting files

A while ago, I downloaded by mistake the PowerPC version of HB 0.9.3. It worked - very slowly - on my Mac Pro. Eventually, I realised the mistake I'd made, deleted the PowerPC app, Application Support > Handbrake and installed the Intel version. Conversions were normal speed once again, but now HB a...

HB 0.9.3 - Where is VFR Checkbox?

I want to try the VFR Setting with HB 0.9.3 as recommended by nightstrm but can't find the checkbox. I'm looking in the Picture Settings box - the only option there is Detelecine Denoise Deblock and Decomb. Has this option been changed?

THANKS!!!
