How to use --audio option?

Does the --audio (-a) switch take just the audio track number, or a string?

In other words, do I use '--audio 3' or '--audio English' or maybe '--audio "English (AC3) (5.1 ch)"' ?

Thanks

Cavalicious: Excellent Post, thanks for the methodical testing. My only caution - it is possible that none of the variables you speak of are the issue here. In other words, if the race condition theory has any validity then it is possible that you will get non-repeatable results with exactly the sam...

has anyone been able to replicate the audio drop using CLI ? I ask this because I have no yet been able to get any audio drops encoding with CLI, whereas the same movie, same source from my hard drive will result in an audio drop when encoding using the exact same settings in the GUI. so, once agai...

Cavalicious: chill out. You're right. I'm wrong. I misread / misinterpreted "mastering". mea culpa. However, I still don't think it fits the information we have. And yes, there will be some red herrings in here too. The main reason I don't think it's mastering is that if it were to do with the logic...

I don't think this is a HB issue (per se'). The same DVD can produce a good encode for some while not for others. This would lead me to believe it's more of a Mastering issue. For an example: Inside Man, Over the Hedge and Cars worked fine for me. A mastering issue does not really fit the informati...

It's NOT the chapter markers

It's NOT the chapter markers

I just finished a re-encode without chapter markers, and the audio dropped out at a chapter boundary but chapter markers were not included.

So: The audio drops seem to happen at chapter boundaries. This can occur with or without chapter markers enabled.

Re: I agree with the race condition theory

With GUI & chapter markers on (audio drops on chapter boundary) With CLI & chapter markers on (audio drops on different chapter boundary) With GUI & chapter markers off (audo fine) is this reproduction solid? what i mean by this is, how many times did you encode the same movie, from same source, on...

I agree with the race condition theory

Hi all. I would like to ask if anyone has had the "sound drop" problem without chapter markers enabled. After someone on the thread made the observation that the drop occurs at a chapter marker boundary, I went and checked all my failed conversions. Sure enough, the sound dropped at a chapter bounda...

Detecting interlaced DVDs :?:

Hi all. Most DVDs are non-interlaced, so I haven't really bothered checking each one first because I am batch ripping all my DVDs to a directory on my NAS, and then each of the five computers in my house runs a loop which looks for a completed rip, claims a directory to encode and crunches away. Eve...

time code breaks

swc_uk, my bet is that your PVR recording has time code breaks and data errors in the stream. Try using MPEG streamclip to clean it up first, fixing time code breaks, and data errors. My guess is that it will then work fine.

More evidence for the DVD drive being a factor

I have just finished ripping The Country Bears (region 4) for the second time. The first had the audio cut out part way through, the second had audio all the way through. They were both ripped on the same MacBook Pro, using exactly the same settings in HB 0.8.0.b1 The difference? The one with the au...
