Re: ATV 2.x Advanced Settings (All Sources)

Tried these settings on a show that begins with ocean footage (waves crashing on the shore). The result was very poor (with RF of 19 and -5 and -9 enabled); much worse than the preset. The waves were all blocky and fuzzy. I'm more posting my results than asking for assistance, but would welcome any ...

Re: Advanced Bluray/HDDVD Workflow & Features Discussion

I'm beginning to understand that eac3to is a lot more than it's name implies. I'm a little flummoxed on the parameters, though. I'm using it to demux and strip pulldowns on a video right now; that seems pretty straightforward (eac3to feature1.evo+feature2.evo movie.mkv -stripPulldowns), but how do I...

Re: Advanced Bluray/HDDVD Workflow & Features Discussion

CrisisDog, on your stuttering VC-1 files, use a program called "vc1conv" (http://www.w6rz.net/) to convert the framerate to 23.976 before re-muxing it with tsMuxer. Also, select "Change fps" to 24000/1001 in tsMuxer on the video track when performing the mux. I've been using this...

Re: [SVN 1866] MP4 error at > 2GB

For the time being, I've reverted to SVN 1832 - I think 1833 is where libmp4v2 was changed.

1832 doesn't seem to have any problems powering through the larger encodes. I completed the one that's been hanging up the newer revisions last night with no trouble.

Thanks Ed. I'm running HB on Debian Etch. I updated to the latest SVN (1879) and did the encode again with the same results. I just schlepped a 5Gb file from my network volume to a local disk to be certain that I wasn't having some obscure OS-related issue. The OS itself doesn't seem to have any tro...

Re: [SVN 1866] MP4 error at > 2GB

Could the problem be in mp4descriptor.cpp, in this line?

Code: Select all

int32_t remaining = m_size - (pFile->GetPosition() - m_start);
In all other instances, GetPosition is associated with a uint64_t.

Re: ATV 2.x Advanced Settings (All Sources)

I encoded one of my movies with these settings and watched it over the weekend on my ATV (streaming from my Mac). Looked great.

Audio synchronization was slightly off (I adjusted the delay on my amp to compensate), but I think that's been discussed quite a bit in another thread.

That's affirmative - I only use the CLI.

Re: Nagging issue with *nix encoding

Thanks Eddy, I'll give that a shot. Do note that these are the same settings that I use on my Mac. I've never had a problem with encodes from that machine; it's only when I attempt it on Linux that I run into problems.

Thanks for the tip! Looks like it doesn't work so well with multiple audio streams, though (I always encode with AC3 and AAC streams).
