Re: Audio settings

If you want to make it louder without recoding it, just play it in VLC. It can up the volume to 400%.

Re: 2nd Audi Track in H.264, Cropping Preview, x64 version

- Add a second audio track for H.264 (most videos I encode are bilingual and I'd really like to keep both languages) Handbrake already supports up to 8 audio tracks at the CLI level so tracks can be added usig the query editor tab. The next gui build has 2 dropdowns available in the gui. Will we ev...

Re: Graceful Crash Recovery

I have a request similar to this, so I'll ask it here:

If we can pause encodes, and maybe eventually get crash recovery, would it be possible to save the progress of an encode in case we have to restart or shut down for some reason?

Re: I like the program so much that.......

Why not use something like VisualHub (or its free cousin, iSquint)? It does wonders with video conversion.

Aw, seriously? One of the most attractive things about HandBrake (the OS X client, anyway) was that the ripping and converting would all happen in one step.

Oh well, time to download MTR.

Well, it's better to have it on the todo list than to just say "no," isn't it?

I was thinking something more along the lines of adding the option to the GUI in a future release.

Not all of us know how, or want to learn how to use the CLI. :roll:

Sorry to bring up an old topic, especially my own, but I figure it's better than starting a new one. HandBrake 0.9.0 has the option for two audio tracks, with the second disabled (thanks), but while ripping my new Futurama DVD collection I noticed that some of the tracks have multiple commentaries o...

Why can't you go higher than 160 with FAAC?

You can notice more of a difference if the source material is higher quality. If you can't tell the difference between a DVD-5 and a DVD-9, then don't bother with H.264.

CPU-wise, if you're using H.264 you can limit the number of threads HandBrake spawns to do its bidding, using x264 options. Keep it to using only one thread, and you should notice HB being a lot nicer to your CPU - at the expense of probably doubled encode time. Let me guess, you can't do that via ...

Limit CPU (maybe seperate core) and/or RAM usage.

Would it be possible to make it so that HandBrake only uses a certain amount of CPU power while converting DVDs? or even just limit the number of cores available to HandBrake? Also, could we limit the amount of RAM that HandBrake uses? I'm a big multi-tasker, but when HandBrake becomes one of those ...

That would work for me. I usually watch the movies in Quicktime afterward anyway, so it would only be a few clicks to get the commentary.

This could be really useful if you already have a movie ripped and want to add the commentary without having to re-rip the entire movie.

It might also be useful for those movies where the sound cuts off at random parts, and you don't feel like re-ripping the whole movie.

Multiple audio tracks, but only one enabled

First of all, thanks for adding in support for multiple audio tracks, I love it. Before I used to have to rip the movie two or three times to get all the audio tracks, then throw them all together with Quicktime, but this is a lot better. But there is one problem with it. When I rip my movies and TV...
