With upcoming changes to data protection and privacy laws in Europe coming into effect soon, we thought this would be a good time to remind everyone that we do have a privacy policy.
This applies to all users and visitors world-wide.

We have made a few changes to the language to make it clearer in relation to this new regulation but fundamentally, the terms and your rights are unchanged.

If you have any questions about this, please feel free to ask in the General Forum

Different playlist. Can you select 00002.mpls in HandBrake's title drop-down?

Re: Encoding HDR

Yes, many of our filters don't support working on HDR, so everything is converted to standard dynamic range 8-bit 4:2:0 internally -- there is no way to recover the lost information then.

Re: Bizarre request - move letterbox black bars to bottom

FLAC encoder should be either of flac16 or flac24 (probably the latter). In theory flac should be sanitized to flac16 somewhere, but clearly it's not happening.

Re: Some questions about black bars and cropping them.

HandBrake doesn't scale PGS subtitles unless you're burning them in, so any scaling quirks if passing them through is down to whatever software you're using to play the file, FWIW.

Re: Bizarre request - move letterbox black bars to bottom

Blu-ray is not lossless; whatever settings were used in the first place did NOT give an exact copy of the original studio master -- using the same settings a second time cannot give you an exact copy of the copy either…

Re: The latest version will be compatible for 8 cores?

It all really depends on your encoding settings. You can also run multiple encodes at the same time, though unfortunately the interface requires you to launch multiple instances of HandBrake.

We do have a padding filter now, so it should be possible. Haven't been keeping up with latest developments though, I'm not sure if it's exposed in the graphical user interface yet.

Re: How to select 5.1 audio over stereo?

One workaround would be to remove the Stereo track from the source before feeding it to HandBrake. Under macOS I'd use Subler, under Windows, not sure. Maybe Mkvtoolnix? It'll make a Matroska file, but since you're re-encoding it with HandBrake anyway, it's really a non-issue… https://mkvtoolnix.dow...

Re: x265 file sizes increase after upgrade to 1.1.0

Looks like you're right, though for the "why" you'd have to ask x265 developers. But unless they screwed something up, chances are the extra bitrate gives you a small quality boost, too…

Re: Particularly slow enode

A 2:1 encode speed ratio using the same settings isn't that unexpected, my guess is the source file is particularly grainy (and widescreen instead of the typical "ultra-wide" cinema format, so there's about 30% more pixels to encode than for most movies).

But I have seen a number of logs pass through here where "forced only" was checked and nothing was found, but unchecking it allowed a track to be found.
Well if you see such logs again, please point them out to a developer, it would possibly/probably mean there's a bug somewhere :)

BTW Woodstock, this is a great example of how Foreign Audio Search + Forced Only works fine (in that packet count heuristics are used to determine the candidate) even though there are no forced subtitle packets anywhere in the input tracks ;)

Re: Foreign Audio Scan Only Works Sometimes

Threshold used to be 20%, but apparently it was causing issues and was modified a long time ago. Unfortunately the developer who pushed the change didn't document it in the source and I don't recall ever finding any related forum topic explaining it either.
