Can Handbrake run in the background on Mac?

I use Handbrake a lot — it is of course unbeatable for what it does. But there is one thing that is a problem. When I set up a queue of jobs and HB starts its work — sometimes it needs several hours to do just one file — in that time I am often going to need to use my computer, but HB uses up all my...

Re: Foreign audio search on MKV files

I should add that if I do a straight conversion of an MKV file without doing foreign audio search, the output is perfectly viable.

Foreign audio search on MKV files

When I do a foreign audio search on MKV files the output is an unusable file (iVI says it has no video even though the file size may be up to 10 GB). This is really frustrating as this is the only way I can think of getting files off a BluRay with subtitles for just the foreign audio sections. This ...

Re: iTunes won't import 1080 HD 'Normal'

So I just tried with two more titles. One produced an mkv file of 17.2 GB, the other one of 33.5 GB. I put them both through Handbrake on Normal setting. The first one produced a m4v file of 2.6 GB, which imported into iTunes with no problems, and the second one a file of 12.7 GB, which is unrecogni...

Re: iTunes won't import 1080 HD 'Normal'

Just tried again using the High Profile preset and cancelled almost immediately when I saw 'WARNING: results will be invalid' in the activity log: [17:24:11] hb_init: starting libhb thread [17:24:11] macgui: Handbrake Version: 0.9.6 x86_64 (2012022800) [17:24:11] hb_init: starting libhb thread [17:2...

Re: iTunes won't import 1080 HD 'Normal'

'Activity Log' if it's Handbrake's you mean, I would have to repeat the procedure to do that. TedJ - is this iTunes' large file support you are talking about or Mac OSX (seeing that it is also affecting QuickTime)? Is it a codec issue at all (I have Perian installed and this should surely give all m...

iTunes won't import 1080 HD 'Normal'

Just encoded my first BD rip, using 'Normal' preset. iTunes will not import the completed output; I cannot even play the resulting m4v file in QuickTime. Any suggestions welcome.

Re: AppleTV vs. AppleTV 2 (and BD encodes)

Well I found the peak framerate box, but I have to say leaving the defaults like that results in jerky video. If I reset the framerate to 'same as source' I get perfect results. So - my original question/complaint still stands.

Re: OS X Lion problem

Oh wow, immediately after posting this I tried switching Default Folder off at the system pref panel and Handbrake worked immediately. But unlike before, once a title is selected, clicking the Browse button to select a second title has no effect. Think I have found something here... but is it a DF o...

OS X Lion problem

I see that people are using 0.9.5 successfully with OS X Lion. I became involved with Apple Customer seeding two days ago and installed Preview 2. Just tried to use Handbrake but it hangs as soon as it gets to the 'Open' dialog. I get the rainbow wheel and a few seconds later (according to Activity ...

Thanks for the reassurance. But I cannot see a 'peak framerate' box anywhere!

Re: AppleTV vs. AppleTV 2 (and BD encodes)

I noticed something else: that the ATV 2 preset selects NTSC 29.97 fps instead of 'same as source'. For the life of me I cannot see that changing a PAL disc to NTSC is going to improve anything - quite the reverse in fact. I have changed it back to 'same as source', but this will be a pain to redo e...
