Re: encoding non-widescreen dvd

Resolution, or "Size" and "Display Size" are two different things. You want a video with the original 720x480 in resolution, and a "display size" of 640x480. That doesn't mean you're losing those 80 pixels, only that they're being squished. (I assume the reason 4:3 content is referred to as 640x480 ...

Parentheses In Subtitles Won't Display Correctly in iTunes

I'm hoping I'm not the only one with this problem. I am now using the Windows-based Handbrake 0.9.4, and when I try and encode the text-based subtitle track to an m4v I am encountering a problem. Everything displays fine in VLC, and the ability to turn the subs on and off is great. Only thing is, wh...

Handbrake 9.4 will not start encoding **until restart**

I had the exact same problem. After setting up my queue, pressing the "start" button does nothing. I've tried on the queue page, the main page, and still nothing. After pressing the button I hear and feel the DVD drive start to try and access the disc, but then nothing happens. The workaround for me...

Re: Encoding iPhone-friendly 640x480 Anamorphic 853x480

LOL you made me laugh - this is completely true and I have very little interest in achieving quality that is "bad, with less detail." Until last night I didn't realize I could sync a higher resolution file. The old program I used when I had a PC wasn't Handbrake and I couldn't sync anything higher t...

Re: HandBrake Snapshot svn2592

Umm I just discovered the same wonderment on my iPhone. I've been going nuts trying to encode 640x480 (anamorphic 853x480), and the newest Mac gui forces it to 720, which I never used cuz I thought it was impossible for the iphone to play it. Stupid me. Clearly it does play 720x480, and now I'm enjo...

Re: iPhone preset but no synching to iPhone

Gant- I can't necessarily offer a solution to your problem but I have had the grayed-out movies as well. I can hit "SYNC" and iTunes goes about like it's syncing them but in fact doesn't sync the grayed-out movies because they "won't play in this iPhone." Its possible there is no error message becau...

Encoding iPhone-friendly 640x480 Anamorphic 853x480

Hello- In encoding some of my film projects, I have been trying to accomplish the same dimensions that iTunes uses, for quality reasons and also just to feel special. 8) The projects are in a 16:9 format. But the files that iTunes encodes for its store these days are 640x480 with a flag set to anamo...
