Re: Copy and merge video streams - lossless operation

As far as I'm aware: There are cases during encoding where audio and video can become out of sync. To get back in sync, HandBrake removes or duplicates video frames, because it's a lot less noticeable than repeating a slice of audio or inserting a chunk of silence. With video passthrough, if the aud...

Re: help resizing/encoding blu-ray rip

There's a common misconception that "Large file size" means "make this file large", or something similar, so people are wary of it. All it means is "allow files that are larger than 4GB (and it is 4GB specifically) to be playable on devices that support it" (some older devices can't play movies larg...

Re: How to burn current-time/duration info during transcodin

HandBrake is ultimately a video converter, not a video editor. There have been a lot of requests (including from me) that HandBrake manipulate the video/audio somehow before transcoding it, to save a step, and frankly, the developers aren't interested. You'd be better off adding any captions you wan...

Re: Strange horizontal tearing on DVD rips

Instead of either of those two, it's likely that you want to turn on detelecine. The wiki also covers what detelecine is.

Generally, for NTSC sources, it's best to keep detelecine on; and for all sources, to keep decomb on.

Re: Set target size

...it's a function that people actually need. I think there has been one guy in the history of HandBrake since target file size was dropped who actually needed it.

Re: if input is xxx.avi, why does it check for Blu-Ray and D

In zeddy's defence, it is off-putting to look through the log and see so many errors, all to do with opening the file. It makes it look like every non-DVD/BluRay is corrupt in some way. It would be more pleasant if the messages went something like "checking to see if DVD... no" rather than using wor...

Re: Way to upsize 720 to 1080?

Your average gamer shouldn't be upscaling video. Have you considered what will happen to the non-1080p versions of the video if you upload an upscaled version. Take the 720p version, for example. Ordinarily, YouTube would take it as it, or possibly re-encode it. But if you give it a blown-up 1080p v...

The leaves are very good: but the body could possibly do with more detail or texture. And I guess it could be made slightly less orange and slightly more brown.

Re: Preview Tweaks

Does each video also exist on the DVD as a separate title? If so, you can import each title individually and the previews will be specific to it.

Re: Downsize video

Open it in HandBrake, pick a preset (e.g. High Profile), click the 'convert' button. Depending on the video (dimensions, amount of grain/movement), the resulting file size could be anywhere between, say, 2MB and 20MB - well under your target.

This is why we have programs like Subler. If you have a Mac, you can use that. I wonder if it's possible to write a CLI wrapper for Subler so it can run under Windows.

Re: Detelecine is no longer High Profile default

If you're encoding NTSC content (i.e. if it's likely to be telecined) then turn detelecine on. If you're encoding PAL, which isn't, then make sure it's off.
