Re: Feedback on HandBrake

First, there appears to be no way to add a group of files to be converted at once, and files must be manually added one at a time, then added to the queue. Could this perhaps be improved in the future? The ability to select multiple files would be a big boon. Search the forums. This has been discus...

Re: strange issue with *all* movies I encode

If you're having this problem with EyeTV recordings, which I've also experienced, it's usually due to a problem with the source. I've had this happen when the EyeTV drops an excessive number of frames for some reason.

Re: I do not want my MKVs to have a variable frame rate

Interesting that HB cannot decipher whether the source video is VFR or CFR. This is not a matter of HB deciphering anything. This is a matter of the fact that many sources are VFR, and you just don't realize it, because most tools are going to report the "nominal" framerate, as Rodeo mentioned, whi...

Re: Embeded subtitles being cropped.

If the subtitles are hardcoded into the source video, you're not going to be able to crop the video without dropping portions of those subtitles that extended into the black bars.

Re: ? How to Cut/Trim m4v-mp4 without re-encoding ?

I use MPEG StreamClip without a problem on Mac, but haven't tried it on Windows. Although, it's not frame-accurate, so I tend not to use it. On Windows, I use VideoRedo, but it doesn't handle Variable Framerate, so I trim source videos before feeding into Handbrake instead of triming the output from...

I've been running into issues with files created with MakeMKV as well, although I haven't done much troubleshooting on it.

You could just reencode the existing files in order to avoid ripping things again, but you'll lose quality.

[08:02:14] + storage dimensions: 1876 * 1080 -> 1280 * 736, crop 0/0/0/0, mod 16
Is this even valid? I thought the ATV2 only supported up to 1280x720.

Re: Apple TV2 - Subtitles...

If you're using soft subtitles, I believe you need to press and hold the middle button on the ATV remote to select which subtitles to display, and you need to make sure that you've selected a language for the ATV.

Sounds like you have a hardware problem with your iPad, or you've uncovered a player bug. What profile are you using to encode the video you're seeing problems with? An activity log would be helpful, as pointed out at the top of the page.

Re: Many questions

1) Is there a way to stop the crop values from auto-populating when you drag a VIDEO_TS file over to handbrake? This would be a nice feature if I were going to play these files on a PC, but I play them on a set-top box and would rather not crop the image in case it introduces an aspect ratio issue....
