Re: Cannot use Intel QSV to decode H.265 video file

We don't currently have a way to determine whether the QSV decoder can decode a specific bitstream (when enabled and available, the QSV decoder is used to decode all AVC/HEVC bitstreams), so for unsupported input files, you will have to use the global option to manually disable QSV-accelerated decod...

Re: Can I tell which encoder I had selected?

Use MediaInfo: https://mediaarea.net/en/MediaInfo

Videos encoded with x264 and x265 will feature a line for "encoding settings" not written by other encoders:

Re: Is the x265 10-bit workflow pipeline 10-bit ENTIRELY in Handbrake?

Because the code to support a 10-bit pipeline hasn't been written yet and the volunteer developers do not have enough time to work on it.

Welcome to the world of anamorphic, where different aspect ratios are encoded to fit a 4:3 storage format.

Your point is still valid though.

No. HandBrake is 8-bit throughout, the 10-bit encoder receives 8-bit input.

Re: How to find out the CRF used in 2nd pass of 2-pass encoding?

It won't include it. If you're trying to settle on an RF values by testing a target bitrate across a few test sources, I would recommend doing the 2-pass encode without VBV (note, when you select an H.264 level via HandBrake's corresponding drop-down, we set VBV for you to ensure bitstream complianc...

Re: How to find out the CRF used in 2nd pass of 2-pass encoding?

If you're using x264 and you're not using VBV (or if VBV had little impact on the output); x264 writes a "final ratefactor" to the encode log.

Other video encoders have no such facility.

Re: Audio Dropouts Apple TV 4K / 4th Gen

HandBrake picks the DTS instead of the DTS-HD MA because it comes first in the audio list (which was originally done for compatibility reasons). I guess we should look into fixing it, but in the meantime it will require manual intervention if you want to use the lossless source. Probably won't make ...

Re: Encoding Options w/ RF0

They don't affect quality, but may impact compression efficiency. Also, RF 0 is lossless with an 8-bit build of x264; with a 10-bit build you'd have to use a QP of zero instead (may not even be possible with HandBrake). Not sure how x265 behaves in that regard.

Re: Audio Dropouts Apple TV 4K / 4th Gen

I'm not sure what warnings rollin is talking about, as I don't see anything after "job configuration" (any warnings during the initial scan may be the result of imperfect seeking and are usually irrelevant during the main encode). Your audio configuration is highly suboptimal for an AppleTV target h...

Re: When to use Deblock on x265?

You use a *lower* rate factor (RF) to increase quality. That will reduce compresson artifacts at the expense of a higher output bitrate. Some such artifacts can also be reduced somewhat by using a 10-bit encoder (even if the source is 8-bit). Ensuring your playback setup (TV, computer monitor, etc.)...

Re: Chapter Numbers as Subtitles

In MP4, chapters markers are a special kind of text track. Some players do not support that track correctly, the solution is to use different software for playback or to encode without chapter markers.

Burn-in requires re-encoding the video, that's the only way to make the subtitles be part of the video stream itself.

Looks like there's only one subtitle packet in the output. My guess is your SRT file isn't UTF-8 encoded.

I'm not familiar enough with NVENC to determine which settings would give you a 16x16 CTU (not even sure it is possible).

Re: NVENC h265 ads extra lines of vert resolution

Video dimensions ("buffer size" here) always need to be aligned to the block size (16x16 for H.264, 16x16, 32x32 or 64x64 for HEVC depending on settings), but those extra pixels aren't displayed by the player (the visible area is specified in the bitstream metadata). It's a PotPlayer bug.
