Re: HB and BD's ripped by MakeMKV

You want to open the folder above BDMV, IIRC (here, LOTR:_FOTR). If that still doesn't work, try renaming said folder to something without a semicolon, maybe it'll help. Still the same error.

HB and BD's ripped by MakeMKV

Please detail your question or problem in as much detail as possible: I've backed up a BD using MakeMKV with the decrypt option, and now want to use HandBrake to rip the titles just like I do with DVDs. However, none of the folders I've pointed it at "see" the titles. Tell us about your environment...

Re: Queue Improvements

But it essentially allows us to have Handbrake automatically stop at any point within the queue. One work-around in order to currently do this is drive HandBrakeCLI from a bash script (usually written for Linux, but should be portable to OSX) which reads a text file which is your queue. This is wha...

mediainfo "Encoding settings" and x264 presets

Hi,

I don't remember the exact set of x264 parameters that I used to transcode a certain movie. mediainfo, though, shows me the encode settings. Is there some table with which one can match those settings to a specific combination of Profile, Preset and h.264 Level?

Thanks.

Re: How many CPU cores are supported?

More than 6 are supported. There is no hard limit. But after about 6 there are steeply diminishing returns in performance. So it's generally not advisable to spend lots of money on more than 6 if you are doing a single encode at a time. In the future, I hope to rework the HandBrake queue so that yo...

MP4s not timestamped anymore?

Hi, I just noticed that mp4 timestamping disappeared some time between May 2013 and November 2014. Was that done on purpose or is it a bug? (All work done via CLI on Xubuntu 13.10 or 14.04.)

Disable cropping?

Hi, Using latest Stebbins Ubuntu snapshot. Is there a "--no-crop" option? (I just see no need in chopping off those extra 2 pixels that HB wants to remove from old TV show DVDs, thereby distorting the 4:3 A/R.) Currently, when I don't want to crop, my bash script has to jump through hoops to determi...

Re: Converting a GUI preset to CLI for batching

Run "HandBrake -z" to get a dump of the parameters used by the various built-in presets. Then use that as the starting point for your batch script. Regarding CC subtitles, I'd run "HandBrake -t0 --scan -i XXXX" to see what HB thinks the CC subtitles are, and then use some combination of "--subtitle"...

Usefulness of --large-file?

Hi,

HandBrake svn6984 (2015031301) - Linux x86_64

Transcoded mp4 movies larger than 4GB are still viewable (vlc, mplayer and a WD media player) even if "--large-file" is not set. Do we really need to set this flag for large videos?

Hmmm. When I rename it to something boring, it's able to transcode.

Still, that seems like a bug, since that's a legal file name.
