Re: Full DVD not being run

MakeMKV rips the untouched, pristine Mpeg-2 from your DVD to MKV file, bypassing copy protection for single personal use.

Handbrake converts the MKV to smaller portable mp4 files.
This is not what you wanted to do?
Will you state your need, because I'm not sure what it is.

Re: Ryzen 9 3900x X264 not maxing out all cores

So I guess this means it is not using interlaced, so I can turn off: Yes, it seems you can, this time. Run it both ways and post both encode logs. I would like to see how much time it really saves you. thanks for the links, very confusing because the standard looks like it can be progressive or int...

Re: Ryzen 9 3900x X264 not maxing out all cores

If you encode "Same as Source" and "Constant" Frame Rate, soft-telecined progressive source will reveal itself intact and "as shot" in the Handbrake render. If you leave "Decomb=Default" on all the time, the very worst that can happen is that it may take a little longer, or a few frames may be accid...

Re: Ryzen 9 3900x X264 not maxing out all cores

I'm guessing that interlacing is no longer be done on blu-ray or dvds
MOST DVD and Blu Ray formats are interlaced by the specifications.
Rather than guessing, this information is readily available to you.

Re: General H.264-to-H.265 for best fidelity & "no better"

It occurs to me that if I take a 1080p24 H.264 M2TS source and transcode it to a 1080p24 H.265 MKV target, there is only one set of HandBrake settings that can do it with 100% fidelity and "no better". In fact, the source (1080p24 H.264 M2TS) really shouldn't matter. Whatever the source, given the ...

Re: iTunes converting my m4V to MPEG?

@Ritsuka, OP is confused that iTunes is calling .m4a as "MPEG Audio Files." He thinks it means something else. That's all it is, and he is targeting that as his problem which is obviously not the case. It is just a beginner misattribution. In any event, the problem lies downstream of Handbrake, perh...

Re: iTunes converting my m4V to MPEG?

Your file encoding looks fine.
I'm sure you know that MP4, M4V, files are MPEG.
iTunes does not produce MPEG-2, so there is another reason you are not seeing video.
Sorry I can't help you past that; iTunes is a classic "black box" to the rest of the world.

Re: VP9 to HEVC re-encoding

You can encode it fast or you can encode it good. Don't expect both and you will not be disappointed.
H264 QSV / NVENC is fast, and absolutely horrid, IMO.

Re: Looking to upgrade my graphics card, need recommendations.

Your question has relevance as Handbrake supports Nvidia acceleration.
I suggest you defer to the response above yours and let it go. Gaming acceleration and GPU encoding have no relationship under the sun, except they often exist on the same card. The rest is just nonsense.

Re: iTunes converting my m4V to MPEG?

I did the conversion a couple days ago so there's really no log to report:
I think if you'll look :shock: , you will find it's still there. No one could possibly respond without it, It's almost certain your problem lies downstream of Handbrake, but we'd like to confirm that for you.

Re: VP9 to HEVC re-encoding

I was wondering if it was possible to convert it into another format with as little loss as possible. Taken in light of your first post, that is a realistic expectation. x265 is a very good, and slow encoder that gives small file sizes. x264 is also a very good choice. It produces larger files that...

Re: 1000+ FPS encode any movie.

A movie consisting of slides and stills will encode at orders of magnitude faster than would complex motion video. It will also be much smaller. It is one big advantage of interframe encoding (there are disadvantages too). Study interframe vs. intraframe compression if you would like to find out the...

Sarcastic comments notwithstanding, all re-encoding causes some generational loss. Whether this can be seen or not is the subject of much discussion, and will continue to be so.

Re: Thoughts on Automatic Cropping

You see, the coders here volunteer their time. This isn't exactly their first rodeo (pun mostly unintended).
So it is unlikely the redesigned algorithms you "would" like to see "will" exist until "you" write them. Github is the best place for you to start.
