Re: Linux GUI, 6199svn, GtkStack background black?

This is great! I had this exact thing happen to me, but I had no idea how to report this thing without looking crazy. I didn't know what on earth was causing this and I couldn't figure out what I was doing to cause this. I'm so glad this is not just me. Brilliant!

Re: CPU usage on Ubuntu with 0.10.0

Slightly off topic. What Linux distribution do you use? Is your opinion of Ubuntu still the same if it's a spin, like lubuntu or xubuntu? I'm not starting a fanboy war, and you can PM me the answer if you prefer, but I would be curious to learn what might be considered a better Linux distribution.

Re: Sending HandBrake Output to MKVMerge

Honestly, the reason I've not posted this as a bug is because I can't be sure that it's HandBrake's fault. The files seem to play cleaner after remuxing with MKVMerge, but I can't really prove that. Also, I can't remember now, but a long time ago (I've been with this forum for some time now), I reme...

Sending HandBrake Output to MKVMerge

Greetings, In Ubuntu, I used to be able to remux HandBrake output with MKVToolnix's MKVMerge program by using mkvmerge -o "$OUTPUTFILE" "$FILE" where the "$OUTPUTFILE" and "$FILE" stood for placeholders for the output and input filenames in my script. I see that in HandBrake's Windows version, there...

Re: Request maximum FLAC compression level

I'd asked this question myself some time ago, which led me to search for this link. http://members.home.nl/w.speek/comparison.htm It seems that space saved from compression level 5 to 8 is negligible, while the encode time goes through the roof. Mind you, HB uses libav instead of flac, so it may be ...

Curiosity. Killing cats and alerting users to "Show Advanced Tab" options since 1929.

Re: HandBrake 0.10.0 Beta 1 - Discussion Thread

Seconded. The 0.10.1 numbering scheme is for open source projects with no aesthetic sense. After 0.99 comes 1.0. HandBrake is WAY more stable and reliable and feature-rich than any paid software I've ever seen. Go for the brass-ring. Go for 1.0.

@vid.user The OP wants what the OP wants. Wanting a 2 GB target encode isn't a character flaw. Maybe the OP likes to keep movies on a 2 GB USB stick? Who knows? Who cares? As for your statement "I can't believe..." Look at how most video encoding was done within this decade. AutoGordianKnot, DVDFab,...

Here's a handy workaround I found for turning file formats, especially stereo files into formats that meet your exact requirements.
