Re: Best settings to convert DV AVI to MP4

The scan log will tell us about your source, thus what to do with it.

Re: 4k UHD with HDR

One thing I have noticed is that you can’t search for 3 letter words so HDR and UHD aren’t searchable.

Re: Can I download the preview images that Handbrake generates?

If I remember right it’s an uncompressed frame grab, so they can be quite large in size.

Re: General strategy for DVB-recordings

H265 will save you space over h264 at equal quality, its whether its worth the extra encode time and compatibility issues.

Personally I wouldn’t encode h265 to h264 unless you have a specific need to.

There is no “good” bitrate for most videos as it depends on too many variables.

Re: H.265 resolution, bitrate and tips

I find it helpful to test the things I read before taking them for granted. I would expect a 33% increase in file size, and 2x-3x more encoding time with the 10 bit codec, all else being equal. You should probably test those expectations before taking them for granted. :idea: Jinx. You win by a min...

Re: H.265 resolution, bitrate and tips

I do not know to be honest - i am simply using it because i read it in some HEVC guide, this is the quote from it: 10 produces slightly smaller files, and prevents banding from 8-bit compressions. https://kokomins.wordpress.com/2019/10/ ... -or-12-bit I find it helpful to test the things I read bef...
