Re: A 1:1 video copy option

If all you need to do is switch out audio tracks, AVIDemux (free) should do the trick.
Or its easy enough in ffmpeg command line.

Re: Converting OGM Files

If you will look up the file types that open with ffmpeg, you will pretty much have it for Handbrake.

There is no need to use x265 compression with Standard Definition video. It is already small.

Re: Deinterlacing Legacy Settings

May I ask a question? Why do you prefer Deinterlace to Decomb? I tested them both in empirical and subjective trials years ago, and again this year and have never looked back. I produced regional musicals and events for 12 years, and shot plenty of pianos and guitars. I agree with you that they pres...

Re: .MP4 to .AVC --- How do I do this??

The .AVC extension usually reserved for an .h264 elementary transport video stream that contains no audio. It is used inside authoring programs to mux with multiple user selectable audio streams with only one video stream, rather than duplicate video streams. DVD ARCHITECT is one example that import...

Re: Converting mp4 to be compatible with Imovie.

An old trick that sometimes works -- change the extension from .mp4 to .MOV
The containers are nearly identical.

An alternative that usually works is to rewrap in ffmpeg

Code: Select all

ffmpeg -i filename.mp4 -vcodec copy -acodec copy filename.mov

Re: Deinterlaced VHS video - Colors 1 frame delay

How was your video captured? That's where field order and field dominance issues are likely to show up. There are filters in VirtualDub and ffmpeg to clean up either issue before introducing the files to to Handbrake, which expects more-or-less compliant source.

Re: File size vs video length

File Size (MegaBytes) = Bitrate (Mbps) x Time (Sec) x .125 Be sure to include audio bitrate! Your 7 min. video was encoded at a higher Bitrate than your longer one.

Re: Green line on bottom of encode

1920x1080 25p/50p and 30p/60p source works for BluRay if flagged as 50i / 60i. If the mastering was done properly, it should just be a flag and the content is actually progressive (no filtering needed). There are some discs where it's actually interlaced, unfortunately. Agreed.

Re: Mov file to mp4

1081 is an illogical storage dimension. Most players will just add a garbage line. Pad or strip to the nearest even number. 1080 is the most logical.

That said, did you try simply renaming .MOV to .MP4? It works more often than not.

Re: Green line on bottom of encode

With BD sources, it is rare to need decomb or deinterlace. Exceptions exist, but most BD sources are not interlaced to begin with. So you can disable those filters, and get some additional conversion speed. With most BluRay Movie source, that is correct. Disregarding Ultra BD, which is a newer spec...

Wonder why this option still is vacant. changing the font and font size are vital to the watching experience.
Not if one is producing a media file in his own geographic region for his own use. A student of languages, perhaps?

Re: Handbrake only showing one episode on disc

So, you are encouraged to download Handbrake for free; and,
Start your own thread with your encode logs if you have questions.
Again, your fair use missive is unnecessary.

Re: Handbrake only showing one episode on disc

You know, it makes no difference if they are instructional or whatever.
Either they are encrypted or they or not. Handbrake does not decrypt.

Re: DVD rip quality problems

DVD is PAL or NTSC Standard Definition.
You cannot turn them into HD. It's that simple.
That's why you cannot upsample them in Handbrake GUI.

Re: Best lossless settings for mp4 transformation

If you are that far above file size, your settings are way above optimal .
It sounds like there is not so much motion detail in your film.
You are welcome to waste all the space you want, it won't do a bit of good.
"Optimal" means enough, but not too much. Make sense?

Re: Best lossless settings for mp4 transformation

I think it is important to know that throwing more well-intentioned bits at an encode that is already optimal makes it, well, ... bigger. "Optimal" quality is casually thought of as being around 0.995 SSIM, often occurring around CRF 18-20 (no lower) at least in x264. Integrity is so good these days...
