Re: Wrong audio track ???

Cocatenation of TS files may be playable but indexing may be lost.
To test if this is the case, download the VideoRedo trial version, cut-and-join them there.
Does the behavior change?

If the files are web optimized, they should begin to stream in a matter of seconds.

Re: Progressive to Interlaced

Handbrake won't interlace or flag as such, since it assumes the output will be streamed or played locally. Ffmpeg will do the trick, as will an editor like Vegas, but not as quickly. Everything I recall about SD broadcast practices is that it was an mpeg-2 interlaced Transport Stream, something Hand...

Re: reduce video file size to exactly 20MB

Bitrate. (Mbps) x Time (Sec) x .125 = File Size (MB)

Because of the encoders used, Handbrake cannot estimate file size for you.

Glad you found a workaround; this one keeps popping up, not just with Handbrake. But 4k on a 13" monitor is still just 13".

Re: Keep the same codec

VideoRedo for Windows will do simple cuts and edits, and mux your video without recompressing.
There is a trial version. Freeware muxers won't fix GOP discontinuities.

Each unit of db in the gain control is 1 db.
dB means dBFS, which without visual meters, also means clipping and distortion.
Without active audio scopes I wouldn't touch any Gain controls.

Re: Best Intermediate Windows Codec for Handbrake

Great question. Both a static Belle-Nuit chart (what you see here) and tortuous open water motion footage, with those coming in slightly lower (maybe 5 dB) on PSNR,, but no signs of falling apart. My personal conclusion is UT or Magic RGB for the vast majority of my work, with UT 422 just right for ...

Re: Suspiciously small file sizes with h.265

Sure.
x265 will get you smaller files at the same quality as optimized x264.
The time savings of encoding x264 is huge.
Since storage is cheap, you should not need x265 for 4K until we are delivering HDR.

Re: Suspiciously small file sizes with h.265

If your file sizes with x265 seem small, the solution is simple -- encode with x264.
That is not a flippant remark; at 8 bit 420, uhd doesn't really need the extra compression, and it will go a LOT FASTER!

Handbrake honors titles and chapters, not even MakeMKV supports menus, although the shell will allow it if anyone takes an interest in coding it?
