Re: The best container to use (.AVI or .MP4)

Thanks once again for your expertise Rodney :D s55 — Yeah true, it's probably not the ideal thing to do. But even when I uninstalled Handbrake (to reinstall an older version), it wouldn't fix my issue. As it turns out the uninstaller did not actually "uninstall" as I thought it would; I had to manua...

Re: The best container to use (.AVI or .MP4)

Ah okay, thanx. I'll have to figure out a way of getting the XviD/AVI option back myself If I want it then... something certainly went weird with the install! I've seen the quality from a H.264 rip myself... I ripped many movies & TV episodes to the format and can't argue with you there. You can def...

Re: The best container to use (.AVI or .MP4)

Thanks for the prompt reply! So would I be correct in assuming that there isn't really an 'encode to H.264 for XBox using Handbrake' guide or preset doing the rounds simply because it's a poor idea? And like you said, because by the time you do get it to play flawlessly, the quality (bitrate) will b...

Re: The best container to use (.AVI or .MP4)

Cheers Rodney for clarifying a few more things. I can see now everyone's reason for opting for the newer H.264 codec (and .MP4 extension) over XviD/AVI. But here's my major issue... I wish to play these files on my modded XBox (running XBMC). The files using the settings I have setup (which do play ...

Re: The best container to use (.AVI or .MP4)

Thank you so much rhester ... you've really helped me out with some answers! In short, AVI is a painfully outdated "container" that should be taken out back and shot. :) Haha okay. Wonder why all the big torrent release groups are still using AVIs then? H.264-in-AVI is problematic at best. I've read...

The best container to use (.AVI or .MP4)

Hey guys. First post here. Thanks for all the help & knowledge I've gained from reading up on the discussions so far. Basically, I have settled (and am very happy with) the Universal preset. I convert the DVDs @ 59% & also have Detelecine & Decomb selected. I don't have all that much knowledge @ all...
