Re: Half way through movie - Black screen - Audio only

Rollin_eng - Tried makemkv. It doesn't seem to be capturing the movie. Just the extras. Any ideas? With MakeMKV, you can choose which video segments on the disk will be extracted. Make sure to check a big segment (there may be several, for multiple language versions of the movie). Extra features wi...

Is there any way especially with the command line to take an existing mp4 as shown in the first example and add an acc audio track, and set it as the default sound track, so it looks like the 2nd example ? Ideally i don't want to retranscode the video or original sound track simple add another. I a...

Re: Can handbrake change video title?

You'll have to use a third party tool for this. For m4v containers, that would be Subler on MacOS and MP4Box on Windows. There may be others.

Re: Is there a lossless setting for merging 4GB Sony AVC chunks?

In this case, no, each chunk is a totally standalone mp4 file. I can play each chunk with VLC, etc. Otherwise one could join them with copy /b in a DOS box :) The implementation is slightly interesting because even when the camera stops because the battery runs out, you get all valid chunks includi...

Re: QT Player Crashes for Movies With More Than 2+ Subtitle Tracks

I've never used anything else than SRT text subtitles with M4V on MacOS. Those work very well in QT, for any number of tracks. Just find SRT files on the Internet and mux them into your M4V file with Subler. Wrong timing of subtitles can be a problem, though. If I cannot find a well-timed track, I u...

Re: Remove Subtitles?

FFmpeg has the '-sn' switch. Does Handbrake have a similar switch? Poring through the Handbrake docs it appear it does not. I'm guessing it involves fiddling about with enumerating streams & figuring out how to omit them. I'll figure it out myself. You did not read the answer exactly. Handbrake wil...

Re: Automatically mute a short list of curse words (Kid-version)

This is not a simple requirement, for a few reasons: 1. Subtitles don't always reflect exactly what's spoken in the movie. E.g., if many people speak a lot, stuff will be dropped as the subtitles would need to change too quickly. Words within sentences may also be rearranged. 2. Timestamps for subti...

Re: When can I use only Handbrake for DVD conversion VS. MakeMKV + Handbrake?

If you know that the DVD is not copy protected in any way (e.g. a home-recorded DVD), MakeMKV is not necessary.

I'm still using it for all discs, as I usually do a few at a time and can use both programs in parallel to save time (rip the next disc while the first one transcodes).

Yes, you are right. The "problem" is, that some people don´t want an anamorphic output, they want an output of 16:9 that was sent in anamorphic. On some Sat Receiver channels the Source is 544 x 576 pixel anamorphic 16:9 and they want to transcode it for their Collection to 720 x 404 oder 1024 x 57...

VLC can't use the hardware decoder on the iPod, so it's all on the cpu, and the cpu is too slow.
