[Fixed] [Win] changing CQ granularity option breaks CQ

Hi I'm doing my best to abide by forum rules, and I hope this fits here. (was in doubt between bugs forum and here). I noticed a small problem in the WinGUI, recent SVN build 2432 (the current SVN doesn't build ). I realise and respect that you don't want (too many) bug reports on SVN builds ( as cl...

Re: Handbrake Compilation story

this thread so far has been about compiling on Windows. Looks like you're compiling on Mac. I'd suggest opening a new thread. but word of the wise, developers of Handbrake don't give support on compiling - and they are very vocal about preferring not to spend time on such posts. So if you post, make...

Re: Batch conversion using CLI via Perl or Shell script??

on the issue of handling spaces in names: something like this should work:

Code: Select all

IFS_SAVED="$IFS"
IFS=$'\n'
for i in `find ...........`
do  
   echo "[$i]";
   #remember to always use "$i", never $i unquoted
done
IFS="$IFS_SAVED"

Re: Handbrake Compilation story

I see sr55 updated the CompileOnWindows Wiki page (and Cygwin instructions moved to their own page). Nice :-) this thread may or may not be the best place, but I have 4 (low importance) points of feedback. 1) wget ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gmp/gmp-4.3.1.tar.gz fails for me; but works with http:// (same ...

Re: Handbrake Compilation story

Fair enough. Thanks for you help. I agree the wiki is sufficient to help one to setup cygwin. While you say doc isn't priority because there's no release, I'd be of the opinion that the absence of a release is likely to stimulate people (me, for one) to try the build themselves ;-) So I just wanted ...

Re: Handbrake Compilation story

thanks for your reply. The /doc folder is very light on preparation of Cygwin environment... It has only a few words to say: 41 * Cygwin, gcc 4.2.4 42 43 * yasm 0.7.2.2153 (for i386 or x86_64 architectures) (+ a list of some more packages needed... not quoted) So it doesn't mention gmp (which is men...

Re: Want to get involved but... my IDE exploded with open errors

falcon, I just posted my story of compiling Handbrake yesterday. I didn't go into detail on the Cygwin install, as it's just about clicking on the required packages as listed in wiki. But euhm... if you plan to do this tonight, I think you won't finish before morning ;-) Took me several hours (well,...

Handbrake Compilation story

I compiled Handbrake yesterday for the first time. I followed the wiki instructions to the letter, and apart from a very minor adjustment here and there, it worked without issues. I just wanted to leave a trace of what I did, in case it helps anyone ;-) There's 1 or 2 things that could be used to co...

Re: Want to get involved but... my IDE exploded with open errors

I compiled Handbrake yesterday for the first time. I followed the wiki instructions to the letter, and apart from a very minor adjustment here and there, it worked without issues. As for the GUI, the only thing I had to do that wasn't mentioned in wiki, was to install QuickTime. Without that, build ...

Re: proposed 0.9.4 presets

ok thanks. for others stumbling on this, a little elaboration: I managed to google my way to some handbrake IRC logs that discuss that as of 0.9.3, -q values are handled as percentages if between 0.0 and 1.0, and as RF (rate factor) if > 1. From a few logs of my recent runs, I figure that -q 20.0 is...

Re: proposed 0.9.4 presets

I noticed in the new 0.9.4 proposed presets e.g. : + High Profile: -e x264 -q 20.0 .....

in 0.9.3, the -q tends to be around 0.59 - 0.62 as per most posts & recommendations. So how could it be -q 20.0 ? is -q using a different range in 0.9.4 ?

TIA

Re: MP4 vs MKV

I suppose you should ask on a WDTV related forum, like wdtvforum.com or on avsforum.com.

Anyway, I also have the WDTV, and AFAIR, mp4 container is more restricted in supported audio codecs, e.g. I'm not sure you can have AC-3 in MP4. So that's the kind of thing you could consider.

Re: proposed 0.9.4 presets

Hi, I have just registered because I'm having the same question. A week ago, I compared the new proposed presets ( posted 3/03 by jbrjake ) and made my own preset, mixing in all info of that thread, the "DVD to H264 at full quality with handbrake?" thread, and whatever personal feelings I had that d...
