Re: Handbrake application slow to load

Are other applications slow to load?

Have you made any hardware changes recently?

Have you run any Windows updates recently?

Can you try the nightly build?

Re: Why can't Handbrake identify language of BluRay .m2ts files?

You need to use “Open Folder”, then select the root folder of your blu ray.

Your playlists should then be selectable as titles.

Re: Trying to understand video quality from bit size and compression type

I’m not sure how encoding time would be of any help as different setups will take different times to encode.

Re: Trying to understand video quality from bit size and compression type

Correct, a bitrate itself does not tell you anything about the quality of a video.

Re: Trying to understand video quality from bit size and compression type

While newer codecs are generally better than older ones there is no “best” bit rate. This is why most people have switched to quality based encoding.

Re: How to get a higher quality file 1.3.3

You are encoding with the very fast encoder preset at ABR 2100. If you want better quality adjust the encoder preset to very slow and increase your bitrate to 6000, this should roughly triple your file size.

Re: 1.29GB took 90 minutes

So change the encoder preset to fast and try a higher RF to get the size you need.

Re: 1.29GB took 90 minutes

Your quality will be mostly effected by RF.

Do you need your encodes to be fast?

Speed. Quality. Size. Pick 2.

Re: 1.29GB took 90 minutes

Yes, that’s normal.

If you want it faster you would have to lose even more quality.

Re: 1.29GB took 90 minutes

Try setting the encoder preset to very slow, then up your RF to 28-30 and see if that does it.

Your video is already very compressed so to get it under 500mb you are going to have to sacrifice quality.

Re: File naming

You should be able to set the file name under preferences then output files.
