Re: General strategy for DVB-recordings

I am using Linux / Ubuntu 20.04, not a Mac. The only tool for repair I know with Linux is using mkvmerge.

Re: General strategy for DVB-recordings

General strategy for DVB-recordings

Description of problem or question: DVB-recordings can be very different DVB-S2 with AVC / X264 720p / 1080p DVB-T2 with AVC 720p / X264 with HEVC 1080p / X265 Probably the transmission is upscaled most times, so there seems to be no advantage to record 1080p instead of 720p. DVB-S2 with X264 has a...

Re: Bitrate X265 vs X264 comparable?

Thanks, so when I was happy with a bitrate of 1300-1500 with x264, a bitrate of 1000 with x265 should be compareable in quality? Most of my sources are DVB-recordings with an enigma-box in 720p. The quality of the sources is not the best and not comparable with BD.

Bitrate X265 vs X264 comparable?

I have a general question re X265 and X264. Should the bitrate be nearly the same, when I change the settings from X264 to X265 and do not change the rest of the settings? When I searched the net, I am unsure if using X265 should lead to a lower bitrate. I understand that X265 produces a smaller fil...

Until discussing this here, I did the following. DVB-recording in HD (1280x720) Resizing the file: Cutting the black border Cutting to 16:9 by cutting 64 top and the rest bottom so I get exactly 16:9 (of course this is a matter of taste) If the result is below 1024, resizing to 1024x768 If the resul...

Encoding of very old movies from the 1950s (fps?)

I have very old DVB-PAL-recordings with old movies from the 1950s, which have been recorded from satellite tv and an enigma2-box. AFAIK these old movies (PAL) were taken with 25fps interlaced. But they are broadcasted with 50fps. So does it makes sense to reduce the fps from 50fps to 25fps? I did so...

Thanks for clarifying this.

I use Ubuntu 19.10 and http://ppa.launchpad.net/stebbins/handb ... ntu/dists/ doesen't contain a snapshot version, so is it an idea to use handbrake with a snap installation. https://snapcraft.io/handbrake-jz says it is from October 2019

Re: SSD-PCIe vs. SATA

I assume Windows Explorer doesn't work like Linux Thunar, but maybe. There are not so many files in a folder when I open it.Let's say 150 files / dirs. Normally it opens immediately, using 3 handbrake sessions, it gets very slow.

Re: SSD-PCIe vs. SATA

I wonder why my Ubuntu-18.04-box has problems showing the file with the filemanager, the more videos are encoded. 1 video is ok with Thunar, with 3 or 4 I could take a minute until I see the files with the filemanager. The load can be over 20, cpu 95% or higher

Re: CPU for handbrake (4k UHD) and image editing ($200 - $400)

My thought was the fastest 65W cpu, which is the 3700X, maybe faster but not slower. The 3800X seems not make a lot sense, so the 3900X or maybe 3900 without X, if I can wait.

Please move, if this is the wrong section.

Assuming, I have 2 SSDs, 1 with M.2-PCIe and 1 with SATA-SSD. Would you use the faster one for source files und the slower one for the output?

GeForce GTX 1660 or GTX 1660 TI?

For my new linux pc (Ubuntu 18.04, soon newer) I have to buy a new graphics adapter too. The decision is between GeForce GTX 1660 an GTX 1660 TI. CPU will be a Ryzen 3700X.

I know OpenCL is experimental with Linux and handbrake. Do you recommend the GTX 1660 TI or the cheaper GeForce GTX 1660?

Re: CPU for handbrake (4k UHD) and image editing ($200 - $400)

I will wait until october and at the moment the Ryzen 7 3700X is my favorite for handbrake. If it makes sense I can imagine to buy the Ryzen 9 3900X, but the reviews I read, say the the 3900 is about 20% faster than thte 3700 with multimedia, while the price is a lot more expensive then 20%.
