Encoding an entire Folder

Instead of tagging video files for encoding one at a time is there a way to encode an entire folder worth of files ?

Re: Video Stuttering, Blu-Ray -> Apple TV

Make sure you set the Frame rate to 24fps, anything else and it may stutter

Re: AppleTV 3.02

Well here's one thing I noticed Post 3.02. I had converted a Blu Ray over to MKV and that MKV over to 720p using the Apple TV Preset. I was tired and forgot to set the FPS to 24. Now prior to 3.02 the file would've stuttered all over the place. But I played it last night and except for 1 10 second s...

An Upgrade question

I'm running a E4600 DUAL CORE w/2gb ram. With this I'm only getting between 4-6 fps Converting a 1980x1080p mkv file to a 1280x720p m4v file using the apple preset. My Motherboard can accept upto a E8500 Dual core. Would I see a significant enough fps boost upgrading to the slightly higher processor...

Re: AppleTV Custom Presets - 0.9.4

For the record I am currently using a constant quality RF of 19.25 for sd dvd and an rf of 23 for hd sources with these advanced options: ref=3:mixed-refs=1:bframes=3:me=hex:subq=7:b-adapt=2:weightb=0:trellis=0:weightp=0 This is for me a balance of quality, file size and encoding speed.

Re: Getting it right closer and closer....

Are you using the preset using a Constant Percentage? I find that while the encodes look ok, it still uses a pretty small bitrate and makes a small file. i tried using average bitrate of 4000 and 2 pass turbo 1st pass and I did get a larger file and a bit more detailed one.

Couple Blue Ray Conversion issues

Downloaded 0.94 and tried Converting my Angels and Demons Blue ray rip tonight. First I asked for a target size of 4400 and I encoded to 1280x528. I also asked for just AC3 passthru of the DTS Track. The File produced was much smaller about 2800mb although the vid looked perfect. There is however no...

Re: Hanbrake 0.92 movies Stall when straming to Apple TV 2.0

What I've been seeing using the stock Apple TV preset is glitches where you will get what looks to be slow motion patches which cause stuttering, it happens for 10 -15 sec then goes back to normal speed, during the glitch the audio is not affected. Has anyone else seen this?

Being a sucker for new toys, and since I haven't bought anything in a while, I ordered one of these babies up. I love handbrake, its all I use for encoding after trying many different apps.

I've found that there isn't a huge benefit to the sheer extra time it takes to encode to H264. On the PC I use Clonemobile to go to a Straight MP4 file using the Ipod Hi Res Profile, with a few tweaks. If I use about a 1800-2000 bitrate I find the image quality comparable to H264, the filesize will ...
