Re: Major Probs with Blu Ray file after using HB

update: After updating to 0.9.6 i still had issues with playback on WDTV SMP. After finding some posts about this issue i ran the file through mkxtoolnix and that sorted the problem.

Re: Major Probs with Blu Ray file after using HB

I upgraded and ran War Horse through again. I changed Constant Quality to 17 and it reduced file size from 32GB to 16.5GB. Pic quality looks good on computer. Will test it out on WDTV a little later.
Thanks for the help people

Cheers

Re: Major Probs with Blu Ray file after using HB

Thanks Guys

Will upgrade and check it out.

The file was processed by the earlier version and it has sound it just stops and starts etc. If 0.9.5 cant do DTS HD in MKV then why would it have still worked to some degree? Wouldnt it just fail or does it still go through the motions anyway?

Major Probs with Blu Ray file after using HB

Hi guys, I havent posted here in a while as I havent been using HB. I have been ripping my Bluray movies with MakeMKV and putting them straight onto my HDD's (Full size without extra's and unnecessary soundtracks) for playback on WD Media Player. I decided to give one of my recent Bluray's a try on ...

Re: Constant Quality for Blu ray

thanks for the info guys, i hadnt used constant quality with my previous 5 or 6 encodes. Instead i chose target size of 15GB or thereabouts. I was just surprised that it came out so small. I havent looked at it on the big TV but looked ok on the computer monitor. Is 20 the best setting for Blu Ray a...

Constant Quality for Blu ray

Hi Guys,

I used the constant quality video setting of 20 for a 20GB mkv file created off a blu ray disc. It created a file that was 2.7GB in size. I didnt change any other default settings.
why would i get a file size this small?

Thanks

Re: Whole computer crashes on 2-pass encodes

i dont think your laptop would be much good for anything else whilst running handbrake as its pretty cpu intensive. it maxes out my 4 cores. even on a quad core with hyperthreading it gets up to 80 odd percent on each core.

Re: Whole computer crashes on 2-pass encodes

you can download CPUID HW monitor here http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html which will give you a live look at what temps on your CPU and Hard drive are and what your fan speeds are. You can then run handbrake or any other CPU intensive program and monitor what temps your system is getting ...

Re: Sandy Bridge - Quick sync

well i mean if you put a 20GB mkv file into it, then leave everything on default under normal preset with say DTS passthru and Target size say 15000MB.

i tried this on friends i7 2600 and it was running around 60-70fps on 8 threads

Re: Sandy Bridge - Quick sync

Hi John,

yes that had me confused.
this is what someone wrote about it in the forum i was reading.
"It's (quick sync) a dedicated device on Sandy Bridge silicon that does h264 encoding *instead* of any other encoder you'd use, like x264."

Sandy Bridge - Quick sync

Hey guys, Quick question. If i upgrade my computer to the new sandy bridge CPU i7 2600, does that mean that quick sync will take over the encoding that handbrake does. I was just reading on a forum in Australia that someone is looking to use this new CPU because it flies though encoding at much fast...

ok, i just finished on a 104min blu ray mkv file. Source was 22.6GB after using Make MKV. I set Target size to 15000MB (came out at 14.2GB), DTS Passthru for audio and used the code for Very Fast. Everything else was the same under Normal Preset. It took exactly 1 hour and 20 mins to complete so tha...

Re: Issue with re encoding Blu ray

So you should pick options that match your target encoding speed first, and only then pick an RF that gives you the desired quality. Also, ultrafast is crap. x264's fastest usable preset is superfast. hi rodeo if i choose say "very fast" can i just leave the RF setting at 20 for a blu ray mkv file ...
