Re: 9.2 worked better than 9.4 (for me)

Thank you for your reply. Maybe I shouldn't be on the tech support board because I don't understand much of the info here. I went to the nightly build board (Dashboard [Hudson] is the page I was on) and there were big warnings about how everything is unstable and undocumented recommended for experie...

9.2 worked better than 9.4 (for me)

I'm an old man and most of the tech stuff here is way over my head: "using the High Profile preset with MKV and RF 20, and applying Strict Anamorphic..." sigh I use Handbrake to save my DVDs onto my harddrive and then with Stream2Me I stream them to my iPad. When I used 9.2 I used the iPod...

"Changeling" doesn't play nor rip

I am trying to rip the movie "Changeling" with HB 9.2 but the computer grinds away for many minutes and finally reports that the disc is blank! I try MacTheRipper but it doesn't recognize the disc. I can play the disc only on my DVD player, not with the Apple player. Could this be copy pro...

Re: READ ME / POST HERE if a specific DVD/Movie won't rip

Hmm. I let HB continue although it seemed fruitless except that it WAS continuing to check files. An HOUR later it found the movie and opened it fine. I'm ripping it now (I hope)

Yeiks! I would very much like to be able to choose to have subtitles on my iPod, but I'm not a Geek. Please help with the acronyms and such. I know OCR is optical character reader but I can't understand how that would work. What is VIDEO_TS and VOB? And what do I do with a .SRT file? Where do I find...
