Re: AMD VCE / GPU Clock speed during encoding

VCE is a separate ASIC chip on your graphics card. The GPU processor is not used directly.

Re: Question: Is 'Web Optimized' enabled by default in CLI?

Because if your web server supports it, HTTP allows your browser to request any byte range. So it asks for the end if the file first to figure things out.

Re: Encode seperate files, er, seperately?

I suspect you're overwriting the first output file with each encode. Either change the name manually for each video before adding to the queue, or enable automatic file naming in the preferences.

Re: OT: How to get properties

Code: Select all

du -s *.mp4 **/*.mp4 2>/dev/null | sort -nr
Replace the two .mp4 with your choice or .* to search all file types:

Code: Select all

du -s *.* **/*.* 2>/dev/null | sort -nr
This only shows total file size but should be useful for identifying large files (listed first) for further analysis.

I was just thinking the same thing about extending the first frame too long being an issue. Sounds like we're smarter than we remember. ;)

Re: First frame of encoding is black

Disable the Align A/V Start setting on the Summary tab. Doing this could ruin audio video sync if your video has MP4 edit lists.

Re: h264 more efficient than h265?

The state of x265 is still evolving compared to the very well optimized and mature x264. It's conceivable it will get better.

Currently, x265 is always better for two scenarios: low bit rate encodes including SD, and 4K. For high quality HD encodes, x264 continues to shine.

Re: .MP4 to .AVC --- How do I do this??

I'm guessing that indicates MPEG-4 Part 2, not H.264. You'll need to select the MPEG-4 video encoder on the video tab.

Re: x264 / x265 Video RF Settings Comparison for SD encodes?

They are not perfectly equivalent, but x265 has worked toward making them roughly so. You'll have to test and see what you think.

Re: What am I doing wrong with VideoToolbox?

You selected RF 23 for x265, which produced a video track with average bit rate less than 3000 kb/s. The VT H.265 encode was made at 6000 kb/s, hence the size difference. Also, you can try disabling interlace detection and decomb filters if you are certain your source is not interlaced, to improve s...

Re: Nvidia NVENC Encoder not working ?

That would do it. Deblock is single-threaded. We're looking at replacing the current deblock with a better one, which should also be faster: https://github.com/HandBrake/HandBrake/pull/2028

Glad you got it sorted. :)

Disable any filters you don't need and be mindful of audio encoding happening on the CPU.

On the audio tab, there is a selection behavior button. Make your changes there, save a new preset, and then use it for your encodes.

Re: Formatting Blu-ray rip to compressed size

I would start with the HQ 1080p30 Surround preset and lower the quality a bit to reach a suitable approximate size, see https://handbrake.fr/docs/en/1.2.0/work ... ality.html
