Re: [Invalid] Some VC-1 formats are "Unsupported"

OK - thanks, that explains it.

Is there a HB alternative program you can recommend for encoding VC-1 interlaced content? :)

[Invalid] Some VC-1 formats are "Unsupported"

A number of my BluRays - particularly BBC nature films - are encoded using VC-1, and HB rejects them with an "unsupported format" dialog. Does HB not support all VC-1 files? Here's the MediaInfo on one that HB rejected: General ID : 0 Complete name : Q:\Videos to convert\FullDisc\galapagos\BDMV\STRE...

BUG (b3673): Preset doesn't always change audio setting

I've created a number of presets, where 3 may be the same except that only the audio output differs - so each variant sets the output audio to either stereo, dolbyII or AC5.1. e.g. http://webflex.co.nz:9998/users/pete/handbrakePresetExample.png I've found that selecting between them doesn't always c...

[Fixed]:3700Win Edit a queue item doesn't reinstate params

In WinGUI svn3700, when right-clicking EDIT on an item queued in the Encode Queue window, the following parameters are not re-instated correctly in the Handbrake editing window, and end up different from the original settings of the item when it was placed in the queue: 1) Destination file name 2) P...

Re: Presets Missing

FYI:

In 0.94, if you're looking to edit the user_presets.xml in Notepad, you won't find them in the Program Files\Handbrake\ folder, as per 0.93.

For 0.94, the preset xml files have (rightly IMO) been moved to the Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Handbrake\.

Re: Title(s) add all to Queue

Similarly, an option to to "Add all episodes" on a DVD would be great too. I would love an "[Add all] between [X] and [Y] minutes long" function, so that we can only add the episodes on a DVD (which are usually all of a similar length), and not all the other adverts, titles and warnings crap that co...

Trim movie before encoding - with preview.

I've partially come over from Recode encoding, and find I really miss this feature that's unavailable in HB. Nothing flash - I'm not suggesting cutting out and re-assembling bits from sections within the movie - just a straight trim off the start and the end of the clip. I use it to trim off all the...

Additional preset request: HiRes on XBox1

I have a number of the original Xbox1s around the house playing from my media server. So I've been encoding all my vids using Recode, h.264, with alot of options turn off - CABAC, etc. It's been working really well, with VLC playing them on my 700MHz laptop at 60% CPU (Xbox1 also uses a 700MHz Celer...

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

I change all .AVI files I receive to .MP4 anyway. Why? Well this tip may only be applicable to Windows users... I store extra information in the Comments field of the file (found under Properties>Summary tab) - such as the initials of the people who have watched it (great for tracking what episode y...

[Not Bug] [WinGUI] HB forgets the name of last dest folder

Here's a bug that needs fixing: Whenever HB restarts, it forgets the name of the last folder that was set as the destination folder for encodes, from the last session. So the auto-naming of the destination folder looks something like this: L:\videos\\dvdTitle_3.mp4 ...whereas it should be... L:\vide...

Auto-add all titles on a DVD that are between A-Z minutes

This would be a real time-saver: auto-adding to the queue, all episodes of a TV series from a DVD. For example, there maybe 10 titles on a DVD of all around 20 minutes (the episodes), plus some promos and extras of 30 secs to 10 mins long, plus a "Play all" title of 200 mins. Now all I'd want is the...

Auto-selection of manual crop values after tabbing

After hitting tab each time to manual set each of the 4 crop values, it's a bit of a pain that it doesn't automatically select the value that's already there - which is the default Windows behaviour. I have to manually delete the value before putting in a replacement. My request is that after hittin...

Some Requests

I've been using Handbrake for a month now, after using Nero Recode for the last year. However, I'm still going back to Recode to do around half my movie encodes. This is why: Many DVD sources are over 16:9 ratios - often 2.35:1. Nearly all HD widescreen monitors are 16:9. I always prefer to watch my...
