Re: x265 Constant Quality

Try 5 points higher than for x264, then work down slowly until you are satisfied with the quality.
With some source, 28 crf x265 is roughly equivalent of 23 crf x264.

Re: Audio delay relative to video

MKV is a wrapper, not a format. The video format INSIDE the MKV wrapper, depending on which format is used, may or may not have a delay. If the video format inside the MKV wrapper is delayed correctly, you do not need a redundant flag in the MKV properties, which would be additive, if present. That'...

m4v had chapter support for older apple devices.
mp4 now has chapter support for all devices.
that is the ONLY DIFFERENCE.

Re: Audio delay relative to video

Audio delay by -- what is reported or what you can hear and see?
It is necessary with long GOP renders, such as Handbrake. All players, to my knowledge, honor the delay metadata, regardless of container.
Unless it looks and sounds like a spaghetti western, you're OK with the defaults.

Re: Duration of dvd substantially reduced once encoded

If the disc, rather than being dirty, was not closed properly or has book-type issues (unlikely in this decade), you can try ISOBuster (free) to pull the titles from the mud.

Re: Can Handbrake work with Interlaced files?

The output will be progressive, though. If you NEED interlaced output, you would need a different tool. Davinci Resolve is free. I hoped that would clear it up for you. However, 99% of video shot and submitted for broadcast is Progressive. It has been this way for several years. The broadcaster mer...

Re: Can Handbrake work with Interlaced files?

Is there a reason Handbrake doesn't offer interlaced as an option?
Because all streaming is progressive, and no, you do not want interlaced output for any reason I know of. Davinci Resolve is free.

Re: How does Handbrake handle 6.1 surround (also known as "DTS ES")?

If so, my question is: How exactly does Handbrake handle this weird audio track? Under the Audio tab, it is still listed as a regular 5.1 track, and as such, I can only do a 5.1 mixdown. There is no "6.1 mixdown" available. Are you reporting a bug that DTS Passthrough is not working with your sourc...

Re: different PCs produce different encodes from the same source file?

I was very careful to set all the options the same for each encode, And that makes for a really imaginative story, but hardly gaspworthy. 0.4% is easily accounted for by differences in the headers from simply writing each datestamp and directory path! If you will but post the required encode logs f...

Unfortunately, you have posted neither the required encode logs NOR the MediaInfo reports to which you refer NOR what works incorrectly or what issue(s) you are having NOR the steps a troubleshooter would need to take in order to reproduce them.

No real need to have this yet, @BrakeHand. Handbrake still runs an 8-bit pipeline.

Sorry for not reading carefully. Here is a recent example of Handbrake getting it correctly with its "dumb" drop/dupe behavior. Specify "Constant" with your new frame rate.

It was likely recorded on a DVD-Ram recorder. The entire structure is different. Those may be only errors as far as Handbrake sees them.

Re: Handbrake transcodes audio even though AC3 Passthru chosen,

That is correct. Your movie was shot on film at 24p and soft-telecined to a legal DVD frame rate, 29.97i.
For smoothest playback and editability, select Constant frame rate and Same as Source on your video tab.

Re: Handbrake transcodes audio even though AC3 Passthru chosen,

There seems to be some ambiguity if the source disc was actually 5.1 or stereo

Code: Select all

Channel(s)                               : 6 channels
Channel(s)_Original                      : 2 channels
