Re: Handbrake doesn't start to encode.

Could this be a localization issue?

Re: Handbrake doesn't start to encode.

Seems to work fine here, not sure whether something's being set incorrectly or not. It looks like your settings should be compliant. Anyway, unlike for H.264, pretty much all H.265 decoders we've tested handle any content up to 4K with level set to auto, so use auto unless you run into a specific is...

Re: Handbrake doesn't start to encode.

Level was always auto in 1.2.x. Setting to auto here should resolve your issue.

There may be an additional bug; I'll contact our Linux developer.

Re: detailed command line option docs OR deinterlacing help?

The default block parameters are pretty sensitive to combing and in my testing at least, I have not found a better group of settings. If the OP is sure his content is fully interlaced, disabling interlacing detection while enabling a deinterlacing is a smart move.

Re: Reference for "Advanced Options" Parameters?

Note also that each encoder has its own settings, meaning you can't use the aforementioned with anything other than x264.

Re: Converting 4k/50p 10 BIT HEVC MPEG-TS 4:2:2

Start with one of the 4K presets, perhaps the Apple 2160p60 4K HEVC Surround preset or similar, and adjust quality according to https://handbrake.fr/docs/en/1.3.0/work ... ality.html

18 is a very high setting for 4K; we recommend 22-28 as a starting point.

Re: Handbrake doesn't start to encode.

HandBrake will not automatically sanitize your x265 settings to be compatible with a chosen level. If you provide the full activity log perhaps we can recommend what settings to adjust.

Re: HandBrake 1.3.0 comment Thread

I'd like to release more often, but it's wholly dependent on developer time. We're a small team. In the past we have aimed to put out a patch release within a few weeks following a major release to fix obvious issues. We have no definite timeline but plan to do the same as time permits.

Re: No Valid Source or titles Found

Sorry it's been so frustrating. There are a number of DVD read errors in the log. Make sure the disc is clean for starters. Tools like MakeMKV can be better at handling structural problems on discs than HandBrake. The log does raise a high probability libdvdcss isn't working with this disc, and this...

Re: Constant vs. Variable Frame Rate for streaming devices

It's not uncommon for all kinds of sources to be mixed interlaced/progressive, so with interlacing detection + deinterlacing (which you want) you will likely have VFR throughout, for instance a combination of 24p and 29.97i. Players handle VFR just fine. They do pretty much exactly what HandBrake wo...

Re: Handbrake 1.30 audio track selection

There is an issue with custom presets potentially having no audio when upgrading from earlier versions to 1.3.0. We hope to have this fixed for 1.3.1. In the meantime, the workaround is to manually recreate presets. @ricric You will probably find the Devices > Apple * presets useful. If you're not a...

@Donnage @Questor74 Please let us know whether Presets > Reset Official Presets solves the issue. We'll look into why this might not be happening automatically with a new release.

Re: HandBrake 1.3.0 comment Thread

You can use optical discs directly if the content is not copy protected. Even so, we recommend using an appropriate tool to copy the content to your storage drive before feeding to HandBrake, as the process is more reliable.

Re: HandBrake 1.3.0 comment Thread

Ultra HD means 2160p 4K, and is not the same as HDR, though both are often coupled. HandBrake supports UHD Blu-ray via libbluray but does not currently support HDR, and the pipeline is still 8-bit YPbPr 4:2:0 in the 1.3.0 release. Thank you for the continued development efforts! You're welcome! 8)

I'm not very familiar with it, but I believe not at this time.

Genuine question, what's your reference point for the 33% inflation? Are you feeding HandBrake a line doubled copy of your source to test?

Re: Simple line doubling -- Possible?

The effect is minimal and mostly prevents strong aliasing. I guess you could output half height with custom anamorphic so your player would do the doubling, but most devices will do the same: some post-processing that looks far better than only line doubling, which usually leads to motion artifacts.
