Re: Encoding with huge wait time and low fps

Barring some miraculous advances in compression technology, you're always going to have to choose between small files and preserving grain/noise. Randomness simply does not compress well. You can scrub away the grain and get smaller files, but at the cost of an overall waxy picture. Or stay as true ...

Have you tried a media player that doesn't rely on external codecs, such as VLC?

Re: Audio from multiple tracks

Assuming that the different tracks are actually in sync with each other, you could simply remux your source before feeding it into handbrake. Use MakeMKV to rip both versions of the movie into MKV files and then MKVmerge to mux one file's audio track into the other.

Re: Age Limit/Restriction

Mp3tag will also do this. You just have to set the iTunEXTC tag to the proper values. For FSK ratings, that would be: TV: de-tv|ab 0 Jahren|75| de-tv|ab 6 Jahren|100| de-tv|ab 12 Jahren|200| de-tv|ab 16 Jahren|500| de-tv|ab 18 Jahren|600| Movies: de-movie|ab 0 Jahren|75| de-movie|ab 6 Jahren|100| de...

Re: Trouble copying

Playing and ripping are two entirely different scenarios. Players interpolate to gloss over read errors. Rippers need to be able to read the data perfectly. You could try something like Unstoppable Copier, but trying to get the scratches out for a perfect rip would probably be better (toothpaste hel...

Try checking "No DCT-Decimate" under Advanced. That should reduce any color banding.

Re: General advice for converting video collection

I note what you say and will leave the audio alone - am I right that if I choose Auto PassThru in the options, it will convert the video only and leave the audio as it is? (I shall do a few trial runs to see how MP2 works with .mkvs). Handbrake does not do MP2 passthrough. But you could extract it ...

[WinGUI] Add all to Queue & Foreign Audio Search

I'm not sure if this feature is still considered experimental even in SVN builds, but I've used it quite a lot when encoding TV seasons. One issue that pops up every time is that Foreign Audio Search options are only applied to the first title in the queue, not all of them. I usually use Foreign Aud...

Re: HB causes buzzing sound

Check your temperatures. Video encoding causes high CPU usage, which will usually cause your fans to spin up to compensate.

Re: Iphone 4s help

For starters, you will probably want to ditch DVD Decrypter, which is positively ancient and will choke on a lot of newer DVDs, and go with something like MakeMKV (free while in beta) or DVDfab.

As musicvid said, with thermal paste, less is more. It's only meant to bridge the gaps where direct metal-on-metal (heatspreader to heatsink) contact does not occur, not to be an extra layer between the two. Also, simply stuff your case with fans won't help. You need to create proper airflow. That m...

DTS on DVD never took off because it was optional while Dolby Digital support was mandatory. On Blu-ray however, DTS is dominant.

PAL DVDs and broadcasts typically use 720x576, so accounting for cropping, that resolution does make sense.

Re: correct aspect ratio

According to the log, your source file has a display aspect ratio of 4:3. If that's wrong (i.e. the picture is stretched) you can set the display width manually by turning off "keep aspect ratio", setting "anamorphic" to custom and entering the correct width (for a height of 572 pixels that would be...

IMO, preventing Handbrake from running at all based solely on screen resolution is stupid.
