Re: Handbrake 0.9.4 Netbook resolution patched

Link to binary removed as it is not officially supported by the HandBrake Project. If it was it would already be included. That's a painfully weak argument - link removed because we didn't do it. It's not supported and that's the point of the build. You're just looking for a way to upset people (an...

Handbrake 0.9.4 Netbook resolution patched

Someone had to do it. [Mod Note: Link removed as this is not officially supported nor endorsed by the HandBrake Project] [OP edit: Oh, that's cute, remove a link to a blog post. OHNOSE! Anyone looking for it can simply Google for "handbrake netbook resolution patched" and find the blog post from the...

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

I can only hope it circulates around the internet. Unfortunately nothing I can say will convince you that actually releasing a version that works is a good thing. In just the same way as Microsoft discourages use of nLite because it "potentially breaks things", the developers of HandBrake are blindl...

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

... Because I simply don't know how. I just compiled the program as-is. I only suggested that incomplete features be disabled, for the simple fact that it's the only thing supposedly holding up a beta release (incomplete features). p.s.: thanks for not jumping down my throat for posting that built v...

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

I think making people wait any longer will cause people to abandon Handbrake in favor of newer apps that don't crash... Why would you be worried about this? Why would anyone worry about this? Um, because the current released version is hopelessly unstable and broken? Why do you think I was even loo...

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

Well, I don't mean "a version" like a different branch, but I mean that working on new features shouldn't continuously push back the release of the application, when other bugs (present in the current version) have already been fixed. It would be better to release the new version, with "broken new f...

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

Hm, well, those appear to me like they're issues with "new" features (some not even implemented, like "new picture settings")... while it's nice to have new features, I don't think they should hold up releasing a version that fixes other issues... ;) Okay, so, well, I can understand why there's hesi...

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

HB is no-where near another release. Alot of things still need to be sorted before that happens. I'd really like to know why you think it's "no-where near another release"... what is there that needs to be fixed that isn't already working better than the current release? I think making people wait ...

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

For what it's worth, a few observations... :) - The "hang bug" seems to have been fixed in the SVN, whatever caused it... I've been encoding with that build non-stop ever since the compile completed, and it hasn't once hung on anything. It doesn't seem to be much faster (as I've seen reported in oth...

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

Log -> See activity log window. Folder where logs are stored: C:\<user folder>\<username>\Application Data\HandBrake\Logs Hm, I've got nothing in that folder except presets.xml. That path isn't hard-coded in the app, is it? Hopefully it's "%AppData%\Handbrake\Logs"... on Win7 and Vista, it's C:\Use...

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

Minimize to tray should fire a balloon tip popup with HandBrake as the title and the encode status (assuming they are not turned off at the system level). I personally find full blown notifications with an OK button irritating. I figure if it's controllable, off by default and there is a balloon po...

Re: Handbrake Compilation story

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 to tell my story - and ideas around the few obstacles I found, in case anyone wants to give i...

Re: Handbrake Compilation story

Virtual PC seems to use pure emulation, so it's exponentially slower than doing it on a real PC. I'm almost done compiling gmp now, although I didn't realize there would be newer versions until I ran into that 404 error and had to dig out a later version. As for wiki being outdated and /doc being no...

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

Now is not a good time for a beta. Too much stuff is "In-progress". What "glaring" bug? Well, I think minimizing to tray without an option to disable (or even notification that it's happening) is very poor UI behavior, a la Limewire "hide it so they forget they're making our network bigger". IMO th...

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

Thanks for the info! :) Well, my suggestions and tweaks would boil down to: - Ability to disable minimize to tray (you know how many times I've re-opened Handbrake when I didn't realize it had hid itself in the tray?) - Try to figure out the cause of hangs in middle of first pass encoding on otherwi...

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

Please don't bash this poor dev newbie too hard! I'm a web (PHP) developer and I've really been wanting to get into desktop coding for a while, but just the complexity of many programs has just got me too confused. I can see a lot of things that could use correction and improvement in Handbrake, so ...
