Re: Addition of letterboxing (AKA padding)

Ah, you didn't tell it to use the preset you imported. -Z or --preset -Z only works with the presets available in Handbrake GUI ("Very Fast 1080p30" etc.). I used --preset-import-file "C:\Program Files\HandBrake\HandBrakeCLI\OHOHOHO.json". Why doesn't that work? That question was already answered e...

Re: Addition of letterboxing (AKA padding)

This is such a hassle. Can I just set everything up in the GUI, export the preset to JSON, open it in a text editor, set "x264UseAdvancedOptions" at the bottom to "true" and somehow input the "pad" command below? No. x264 doesn't do padding, it's a video encoder only. The pad filter is a HandBrake ...

Re: Video has a weird black text overlay

And make sure do remove the "Foreign Audio Search" in the subtitle list if you don't want on-screen timecode.

You're importing the preset from the file but not actually using the preset (--preset="Preset_name")…

Re: Video has a weird black text overlay

It's the subtitle track, most likely. Foreign Audio Search is meant for commercial movies and TV series, not homemade video DVDs :)

Re: error while opening *.iso file

By using the EMACS editor (definitively the most potent editor also available for Win10) I was able to replace all those special characters (seen as "\nnn" with n being a number from 0 to 9) with one single (so not an "ae" for "ä" but just an "a") character. After saving the changes handbrake was a...

Re: Ref frames 4 or 5?

Only you can decide, really. Most people are content with 22 to 20, some people feel like they need to go as low as 17 or 16. You'd have to try a few test chapters and look at the output on your TV.

Re: Ref frames 4 or 5?

Encoder level and resolution. 1920x1080 at level 4.1 has a maximum of 4 refs, else the bitstream is invalid. At 1920x800 (which you would get for 2.40:1 content) you'll get 5 refs because the lower resolution allows for it.

Re: Unexpected cropping of video

Still nothing being cropped; most likely the issue comes from your playback device or software.

Can you confirm that Tools -> Preferences -> Advanced -> "Number of picture previews to scan" is set to 10?

Or maybe just remove them all together? Seriously, does anyone use this anymore?
+1 HB's implementation was never that good with strongly correlated channels anyway.

Did you relaunch HandBrake before grabbing the log?
Yes, I did.
That's why there's nothing useful in it. Do NOT relaunch HandBrake after it crashes, and grab the log from disk.

None of these titles seem to have an alternate video track as per the log though :(
Would HB see multiple video tracks and report them, even if it couldn’t do anything with them?
Yes, unless I am mistaken, libbluray would, during scan.
