[Fixed]4337svn strange artifacts on some sources

I'm not sure if this is the same issue posted here in this forum. The artifacts look a bit different, so I'll post this report here anyway... So using the latest couple of nightlies (I've tried 4337svn down through 4324svn), I find that one of my sources has a bit of a problem. This is the Stargate ...

Hi, Can you share what was done for the fix? I'm experimenting with that software package as well.

Re: HandBraking the PS3 (The PS3 Owners Thread)

Check his log; he used CFR. Ah, why yes he did. He even said he did. :/ Sometimes i'm a bit daft. I tried the trial of Mezzmo and also experienced the unsupported data issue with MP4. Interestingly enough, Mezzmo will serve up the same stream in an m2ts with no issue. WMP serves up both containers ...

Re: HandBraking the PS3 (The PS3 Owners Thread)

You might want to go over this post . If Mezzmo uses the tsmuxer package internally, you probably are having that same issue (timebase vs. framerate). We can test by using the DNLA server built into Windows. I see you are using Vista, so you are stuck with WMP11. I don't use that, so I can't help yo...

Re: HandBraking the PS3 (The PS3 Owners Thread)

AC3 passthru works great in the MP4 container for well over a year now-- since firmware 3.30. Take your transcoded file and put it on a usb thumb drive and see if the PS3 can play it directly from there. Likely, there is nothing wrong with the MP4 file, but rather your streaming methodology. What so...

Re: HandBraking the PS3 (The PS3 Owners Thread)

I'd try a wired network firstly. It is well known that the PS3's wireless implementation is dodgy. The first item on the PS3 Media Server troubleshooting guide is to run a wired network. Personally, I threw in a 640GB drive and copy everything over to the PS3. If the files play back properly from a ...

Did you try playback directly on the PS3? I just encoded Chicken Little, and other than the obvious voice to character problems, it was in perfect sync.

Re: HandBraking the PS3 (The PS3 Owners Thread)

Well, I find this discussion interesting. I have had only two instances in which audio sync has been an issue on the PS3. Firstly was with the 0.9.4 release. Any encode done with 0.9.4 and High Profile showed ~150ms out-of-sync when played on the PS3. As stated prior, upgrading to a nightly solved t...

Re: HandBraking the PS3 (The PS3 Owners Thread)

I guess I have a dissenting opinion. I'm fairly susceptible to audio sync, enough to notice the 40ms I had to delay at the receiver level... Today I encoded the same film with: AC3 -> AC3 passthru AC3 -> AC3 ffmpeg 6 Channel Discrete (640) AC3 -> AAC 6 Channel Discrete (640) AC3 -> AAC Stereo ProLog...

Re: HandBraking the PS3 (The PS3 Owners Thread)

My analysis was, that since my PS3 is only connected directly to a TV (52 inch plasma, if that matters) via HDMI, the PS3 must decode the AC3, and downmix it to stereo at PLAYBACK time, since thats all my TV would accept . Its this addition work the PS3 must do during playback that makes a movie en...

Re: HandBraking the PS3 (The PS3 Owners Thread)

I'm sorry, the correct setting is called default, not auto, and you can select it from the dropdown. No need to type anything in, just select default. If that doesn't work, try setting deinterlace to slow.

I've had audio sync issues with 0.9.4 release, but since switching to nightlies nearly a year ago, I've experienced no problem what-so-ever on either Blu-ray or DVD encodes. :merange=64 is a pretty strange option, no x264 preset uses more than 24, not even "placebo". I doubt that is your p...

Well, since you posted to the PS3 thread, I'll assume you are targeting the PS3 as your playback device. For DVD, you'll first need to decrypt the DVDs for use by HandBrake. There are many different options available to do this. In a Windows environment, AnyDVD (a commercial program that will cost y...
