Re: 0.9.5 low volume, and subpar video quality

Re: 0.9.5 low volume, and subpar video quality

Apple Universal is only necessary to support degenerate old Apple devices (iPhone 3G, iPod non-touch, tv1, etc). Any Mac, tv2, iPad, and iPhone 4 support more advanced features so you should be using the tv2 preset for all of them. TSN is low framerate (24fps) and low resolution (since it's 2.4:...

Re: 0.9.5 low volume, and subpar video quality

Well other 2 hour films ranged from 1.4-2gb easily and didnt have terrible video quality under the Universal preset; however TSN came out to 900MB so I'm wondering if there is something to do with the actual data on the disc when being converted? I have a wide variety of Apple Devices; macbooks, app...

0.9.5 low volume, and subpar video quality

Tried a few newer movies encoding with the Universal preset with not adjustments to the settings. The overall volume seems to be very very soft as it was in the previous release. Even adjusting the settings suggested before dont give it any better of a sound compared to the DVD direct rip. The video...

Re: Toy Story 3 - Problems anyone?

No problems here with a store bought copy I wanted to put on my iPad. I just came back from buying Toy Story 3 DVD and tried to encode it to use on my iPod. HB scanned the disc just fine but still a bit slower than usual. When I went to watch the encoded movie it played random scenes. I believe the ...

Re: Volume issues with playback

i have had this similar issue with Audio quality. most everything else is fine, video quality, etc. some movies, it depends. some sound great and no tweaking needed. but to be honest adjusting the DRC level isnt going to have much affect on the audio quality; to me its like pressing the boost button...

Re: Poor audio mix-down

i went from DRC 0.0 to 3.75 and noticed a more of a louder increase.

when i first did encoding, i was told to leave the DRC to 0 to retain the audio form the source, but of course that hasnt been the best case scenario.





(thanks)

Thank you both. Well yes, an old MTR. I can't find the latest MTR so its last resort to use 2.66 and apparently its really ridiculous effort to get the latest MTR, i dont mind a small donation for a quality product if I could find it lol.

Not sure when my previous post will be/was submitted/approved. But I had a couple of follow ups regarding the reason why it wasnt working.
