Re: Intel QSV vs AMD VCE in Handbrake 1.3.1

The hardware encoders aren't much different. The preference is generally "the one you have", and if you happen to have multiple, then the most modern one is generally the pick.

Re: Question about ref/bframes

This is just a general question about the Advanced Options under the Video tab. I have spent the last hour trying to find information on this but with no success. I ran across a site that gives their "best settings" for Handbrake and one of the things they say to do is put ref=5:bframes=5 in the Ad...

Re: Judder-free, 60 FPS telecine (?)

I've quit the ffmpeg-user mailing list. The principals there don't care about my experiments. Some of them seem to not actually understand the 'mechanics' of video and see the process solely in terms of making calls to libraries. Yea I'm going to guess they're not the side with a lack of understand...

Re: Stretched video after conversion

You can leave the bars on with HB if you don't crop them off, but we'd need to see a log to know if you did that correctly.

I urge you to write and support the necessary code to integrate arbitrary filters from the libavfilter library into HB. Should keep you busy for a while.

You don't. HB is not an ffmpeg front end. Use ffmpeg if you want ffmpeg.

None of your images work.

Is it fine when you play it on your computer with VLC?

Re: Judder-free, 60 FPS telecine (?)

While HB uses some libraries from ffmpeg, this belongs in the ffmpeg channels and does not relate to HB.

Re: Weird final file sizes for different presets

The HD presets use a higher RF (lower quality per pixel), appropriate for HD material that has more pixels. That wasn't the question. I know that the HD version would be larger. What I'm asking is why the 480p version file size is larger than the 1080p file size for the same type of rip. Because th...
