Audio settings control pannel

I'm trying to understand the audio settings better and would like to know what how they affect the audio. First: The "Gain" control. How many DB's does each increment of the Gain control, increase the output audio? Second: I want to encode 7.1 source audio, (mostly from DTS - HD MA 7.1) to E-AC3. Th...

Re: Adudio out of sync

I still use Mpeg Streamclip, even though it is not supported any longer, but still works just fine under the current Mac OS and it does correct timecode. The files that are out of sync on my system are timecode correct after editing, so that is not the problem with this sync issue. To be able to cor...

I'm having the exact same problem.

Re: Join two file together after transcoding

In Mpeg StreamClip, I just use the "Open Files" command, (command + O) under the file menu, select the two files to join at the same time and when they open in Mpeg StreamClip, run the "Fix Timecode breaks, (command + F) and then save out the file. To make sure the segments are in the correct order,...

Re: Advise for DVD Encoding

Well here's my two cents worth. I have 4 Apple TVs in my house, all served from iTunes on my server. As for my collection of several hundred movies, (I own on DVD & Blu-ray) all of my DVDs were encoded with the preset provided for Apple TV 3 with the Constant Quality set to 18. The reason I use 18 w...

Video size affected by creating new user preset

Re: How to rip a dvd on iMac running 10.8.2

You should use a ripping software such as MakeMKV, (free download) to create a file that has no protection, then use handbrake to encode the unprotected MKV file. Trying to rip from the original disk with just handbrake, (that is usually protected with copy protection schemes) is not a good idea. Th...

Re: How is AppleTV3 preset

I've completed over 600 Blu-ray encodes with the Apple TV 3 Preset and have found that the default setting is very good. The only change I made to the preset, is that the default preset likes to encode at 30fps, I changed that for blu-rays to same as source, (being the source is at a lower frame rat...

Re: (SVN5170) Mixdown from DTS-HD MA (6.1 ch) breaks

I checked MakeMKV presets again. What I found is once you set the preferences for preferred language And interface, it turns off those tracks that are unnecessary. It also turns off in the DTS audio the high-definition DTS audio, leaving only the normal DTS audio, which is why I'm seeing a differenc...

Re: (SVN5170) Mixdown from DTS-HD MA (6.1 ch) breaks

Hi Dalsvzla

I've checked again, an the only audio that Handbrake is showing under the track heading, is the following"

"0: English (DTS-ES) (6.1)"

There is nothing else listed when you click on the track button.

Not sure why mine is so different?

Re: Need to convert Handbreak MKV's to M4V's

Just use the Apple TV 2 preset, or if you have an Apple TV Generation 3, use the Apple TV 3 preset in handbrake's "Devices" presets, it will create .m4v files as well as let you pass through the AC3 audio track. As far as transcoding, that has to be done, when going from one kind of container type l...

Re: Force Subtitles (Anime)

First off, I'm guessing that your source for the MKV file was a DVD, you didn't say. When using DVDs that are going to be used in iTunes, there are really two ways to approach it. If you want the subtitles to show, they will have to be burned into the video, by selecting the burn-in option in the su...
