With upcoming changes to data protection and privacy laws in Europe coming into effect soon, we thought this would be a good time to remind everyone that we do have a privacy policy.
This applies to all users and visitors world-wide.

We have made a few changes to the language to make it clearer in relation to this new regulation but fundamentally, the terms and your rights are unchanged.

If you have any questions about this, please feel free to ask in the General Forum

Re: To rip first or not

Quality, No. Speed, maybe but it depends on your settings.

Best practice is to rip first then encode.

Try ripping with makemkv as that is considered the ‘gold’ standard.

Re: Automatic croping broken in the latest nightly

You could also try increasing the number of preview frames to see if that gives better results.

No it’s not possible with HB, you have to reencode the video with HB.

Re: HandBrake resulting files are larger than original file

You should also change your audio to passthru or choose a lower bitrate.

Re: ATV 4K H.264 Baseline Profile Preset - Which one is correct?

I’m pretty sure I’ve played Blu Ray rips on my aTV3 and 4 so I would look at your connections on your lan.

What exactly is your setup between iTunes/Router/aTV?

Re: All available versions crash on encode

If you use one of the built in presets does it still crash?

Your source and output are 1080.

Do you have a log of one that has the incorrect output?

Re: Move letterbox black bars to bottom (crop and pad blu ray rips)

I would guess your original “2 pass” was probably the subtitle scan first, then the encode pass.
