Re: Comvert MKV to MP4 and Keep Subs and Chapters

At this point, I am not so concerned about the subtitles, just the chapters. Any ideas?

Re: Comvert MKV to MP4 and Keep Subs and Chapters

The MP4 container is not compatible with PGS subtitles, which is why they must be burned in. Burned in means re-encoding the video... so that's out. As mentioned, you can use ffmpeg to convert JUST the audio and write an MP4 file, so long as you give up on having switchable subtitles. Is there a re...

Comvert MKV to MP4 and Keep Subs and Chapters

I currently use Handbrake to convert my Blu-Rays to MKV format, along with digital audio (passthrough), chapters, and the forced subtitles (not burned in.)

How can I convert this to an MP4, without having to re-encode the video, convert the audio to "Stereo", and keep the chapters and subtitles?

Speed, Quality, File-Size - Pick Two

This has been said before, but I ultimately believe it to be true. Anyone who encodes video knows that these three items are what we all seek. Speed, Quality, and File Size. Personally, I say you get to pick two of the three. Speed and Quality are available with NVEnc and QSV, but the file size is a...

x264 Software vs. Intel QSV vs NVEnc

Did a compression artifact comparison between the three. I don't have "specific" numbers, but I can tell you what I have observed. Software takes the longest (especially at veryslow) to get the smallest file size with the best picture results. On average of 6 hours for a 2 hour movie (Core i7-3440) ...

Re: Subtitles getting "squished"

That's kind of what I thought. But they are scaled down to fit the size of the video, which is now 1920x816. This happens on any playback device I use. VLC, Chromecast, TV, Blu-Ray player, etc. The only solution I could find is to burn-in the subtitles. But this doesn't work well with the other sub-...

Subtitles getting "squished"

I recently purchased the Star Wars Anthology (Episode 1-6) on Blu-Ray. I was able to determine which subtitle tracks were needed for the general movie. However, I noticed that the subtitles aren't as small and so far up on the screen on the original blu-ray. After they were encoded with Handbrake, t...

Re: Cropping Black Stuff

Also, you can increase the accuracy of HandBrake's autocrop by increasing the number of preview pictures during scan, it's set somewhere in Tools > Options. Thanks! I didn't know about that. I still have one small issue on some DVD's. There is like one or two lines of pixels at the top that look fo...

Cropping Black Stuff

On many DVD's there are black areas included in the video. Some areas are on the side, some are on the top and bottom. Mostly this is there to accommodate the aspect ratio of the film. I get the whole ITU / Anamorphic Jazz. What I am looking for, is a utility that will allow me to open my ripped DVD...

Re: Dramatic Inconsistencies

"Compression efficiency" doesn't equate higher efficiency to smaller files. Compression efficiency is a function of both file size and quality. For the faster presets, if you see the file size get smaller, you will also see the quality decrease. If you were to adjust your settings so that the slowe...

Re: Dramatic Inconsistencies

Poor compression efficiency. Not to beat a dead horse, but sometimes you get a smaller file size with VeryFast. And the times that you don't, you are in the same ballpark with VerySlow. It's never as dramatic of size difference as UltraFast or SuperFast, or the next step down Faster. It's a bit of ...

Re: Dramatic Inconsistencies

You are asking for a free lunch. That's not going to happen. Pick two. Yep, the age old addage. Pick two of the three. That's been a staple statement in the encoding world since KVCD's (Nobody remembers?) So, then I should ask the question... What's the problem with "Very Fast" ? Or is there one?

Re: Dramatic Inconsistencies

Structural similarity, a measure of video quality. Tune SSIM disables the psycho-visual optimizations that x264 has which make the video look better but lower the objective quality (as measured by SSIM). With that done you'll see the quality improvement for the slower presets that produce the same ...

Constant quality isn't quite constant quality across different speed presets. Use tune SSIM and compare the SSIM values for the two very presets and you'll see the difference. Not really sure what that means. Can you explain? Which part? I understand there will be some inconsistencies with a CQ sli...

Dramatic Inconsistencies

I just did a comparison on a DVD Encoding and came up with some inconsistencies. Obviously you normally exchange file-size for time when it comes to encoding. Most of us want the best picture quality (Same as source), with the smallest file-size, along with a quick encoding time. So, I decided to en...

Filesize larger in Linux than Windows

I have just finished encoding a 1080p MKV file in Ubuntu 12.10, and then did the same thing in Windows, with the same settings, and same version of Handbrake, and encoded file size is a good 300mb larger in Ubuntu than it is in Windows.

Any ideas?

Well, I think I have solved my problem. And I hope someone can explain this situation to me, because I am not sure that I understand this. When I do my encodes to MKV, I had B-Frames enabled. When AviDemux would load the MKV, it told me that B-Frames could lead to frame de-sync... Okay, I get that. ...

Re: Handbrake Transcoding

Handbrake doesn't do it, but ffmpeg should be able to handle it just fine using -acodec copy and -vcodec copy It does it, but the output is weird. I've also tried a program called AviDemux, and it reproduces the same thing. The h.264 video becomes choppy, or has odd frame rates when the audio is co...

Will AnyDVD allow you to rip directly to Handbrake, or do you need to rip to the hard drive first, then encode with handbrake, making this a longer 2 step process?

I know the 0.9.4 release doesn't work with the new Gnome interface in Ubuntu Lucid 10.04.

Does it have any issues with Kubuntu Lucid?
