Re: X-Men Audio Not in Sync

The subtitle track that I enabled on my rip doesn't actually have a language associated with it. It's labeled as "Unknown." If you rip the disc to your hard drive, just play the movie back as you would normally and check to see which subtitle track is automatically enabled. I believe there are some ...

Re: X-Men Audio Not in Sync

That worked. Guess I'll have to wait for the fix before I can encode X-Men... it has a subtitle track that needs to be on for certain scenes.

X-Men Audio Not in Sync

I'm not exactly sure what's going wrong, but I can't seem to get my copy of X-Men to encode properly. The rip is from the X-Men 1.5 DVD release. I ripped and stripped it originally with DVDFab. Whenever I try to encode the entire movie, the first chapter's audio is completely buggered. It doesn't pl...

I Had a Dream...

Clearly I need to take a break from encoding. I had a dream last night wherein someone posted that an updated version of HB was released, and that weighted b-frames no longer caused the fading issue on ATVs. Further to that, enhancements had been made to x264, and now a setting of 49% CRF was suitab...

Re: can Handbrake handle .dvdmeda files from RipIt

I just wanted to add the fact that I've experienced the same problem (HB crashes when attempting to load a .dvdmedia file) with at least one older DVD: the 2-disc special edition of Batman Returns (was released in '05, so copy protection wasn't quite in the same state as it is now).

Re: On iTunes Not on AppleTV

The appropriate place for this question is on Apple's Discussion Boards, since your problem is actually an issue between iTunes and your ATV. This has nothing to do with Handbrake. You still have to sync iTunes' information with your Apple TV, even if you don't want to sync the actual MOVIE. In the ...

Weird Encodes

Okay... I exited HB and cleared the queues before I noticed this problem, so I don't have any activity logs to post. I also doubt that my settings had anything to do with it. I ran several encodes overnight during this past week and came across some rather odd issues. Both encodes of WALL-E and Die ...

Re: This has to be the S L O W E S T piece of software...

I don't know what settings you used, but a 2 hour movie takes me about 3-4 hours to encode on average. That doesn't take into account the differences in hardware (and I'm pretty sure that a Core 2 Duo wipes the floor with a Sempron).

8x8dct and Apple TV

This question is for anyone who tried enabling 8x8dct for file that was to be played back on an Apple TV in the past. When the encode didn't play, did it not play right from the get-go (i.e. Apple TV wouldn't even begin to play the file at all)? Or did it play to a certain point and then stop abrupt...

x264 Options w/CRF

Just so I'm clear, if I encode something at a given CRF percentage, any options that I specify will affect the filesize/bitrate of the encoded file, correct? The visual quality should be the same, but the filesize will be affected by whichever options I choose--is that right? Or are there specific q...

Re: AppleTV Advanced Settings (Post PsyRDO)

8x8dct still seems to be working just fine. I tested with a couple chapters from a few movies: Final Fantasy: Advent Children, The Fugitive, Eyes Wide Shut, Sunshine, and Miami Vice. There wasn't a single hiccup with any of them.

With the chapter I was testing with, omitting weighted b-frames increased the filesize by about 1-2%. I'm not sure if that percentage carries over to a full-length encode, though.

Re: AppleTV Advanced Settings (Post PsyRDO)

After many tests, I've discovered that the culprit behind the issue with fades is the weighted b-frames option. I've been testing with the first chapter to Eyes Wide Shut (*sigh* Nicole Kidman) since the titles are large, bold white characters against a black background. The WB logo was also suscept...

Were you encoding to 720p or 1080p?

Well, I tested rates from 59-65% with the longest movie I have (King Kong), and I was able to keep it under 3GB with Cav's settings @ 64%. That's perfectly fine for me. I doubt it's actually the biggest movie I have (I believe that title belongs to "Sunshine," a 3 and a half hour long drama that's t...

Well, I may have changed my tune. I went home and gave Abulia's settings a whirl with "Finding Nemo." I can't say I was impressed with the results. I got better results using Cav's settings (see earlier post in this thread) @ 64% CRF than I did with Abulia's @ 62% CRF, on top of which Cav's settings...

Abulia: I'm liking what I'm seeing (even if single-frame captures are irrelevant with CRF) with your settings, and I'm looking forward to reading about your findings with regard to stuttering and HP:OotP. Time and size are inconsequential for me... unless we're talking about GIGS of bloat.
