Re: Black bars on top and bottom of screen

The preview window adjusts to whatever the video dimensions are, so you'll never see black bars there (unless you disable autocrop). The black bars (letterboxing) are there because your video is 2.35:1 (as you pointed out) but your laptop display is most likely 1.78:1 (a.k.a. 16:9) -> the video is w...

Logs or it didn't happen. You're most likely accidentally using different settings on one vs. the other machine.

Re: We need a Preset for Discord servers please...

Under macOS you could split the output with MKVToolnix, then use Subler to convert each piece to MP4. I think there may be an app similar to Subler for Windows, but I can't remember which.

Re: We need a Preset for Discord servers please...

If the source is a DVD, MKVToolnix won't be able to split it easily, or did they add DVD structure support at some point like they did for Blu-ray?

Perhaps MKVToolnix. Though I don't know whether MKV files will play inline on Discord or not.

Re: encoding a full disc(with chapters) on 1 file

Those are titles, not chapters. Chapters would be parts of each episode. It all depends on how the DVD was authored. Some have "Play All" implemented as a title, others only have individual episode titles and "Play All" is implemented using DVD menu logic. HandBrake cannot display DVD menus, so in t...

Yes, I forgot x264 allows one to set these values manually. Glad you got it sorted.
And we also have special code to grab those if set via advanced options, and make sure we write the same values on the container where applicable (MP4).

Re: Can I set the color profile in the GUI version of HandBrake?

You need to set the matrix, primaries and transfer specifically.

Also I don 't think this would be reflected in the log as the job configuration gets written before encoder init, but you could check the output via MediaInfo.

Re: Can I set the color profile in the GUI version of HandBrake?

If you use the x264 encoder, you can set the color matrix and related options via the libx264 options text box, and we do read those back after x264 options get applied, unless this has changed. Not sure about other encoders.

Re: i'm not getting the subtitles hard coded

The "forced only" checkbox is for foreign audio segments, e.g. when you watch an English language movie with Korean segments spoken every now and then. If it's a full Korean movie and you want English subs, it should be deselected.

HandBrake doesn't have any automated splitting, but there are other tools you can use to split the video before or after HandBrake.

To answer why it's 8.5MB and not changing as he claims to change settings we certainly do! Sure, though in this case it won't tell us much. It's the nature of how these presets are designed. He should be able to decrease the file size by increasing the RF substantially, but lowering the RF (raising...

Re: How do you determine from the job queue if deinterlacing was activated ?

Well looking directly at the activity log text output, under job configuration, there's a section for filters. If the encode is already in progress you can find it there. Not terribly practical but that's the best you can do with version 1.2.2 I guess.

Nope, the GUI cannot pause across reboots -- once the RAM is cleared, you cannot resume an encode, period.

Well if your source is a DVD you're not supposed to open the VOB file (they don't contain track language information), but the VIDEO_TS folder…
