Re: Handbrake versus MKV and quality issues

Under Picture Settings under the filters tab Deinterlace is off. Then where it says deinterlace and decomb - decomb is chosen and then says off. It's pixelated and has streaks of colored pixels up and down the screen. You can hear the audio but not see the picture. I just used MakeMKV for different ...

Handbrake versus MKV and quality issues

I have historically used Handbrake (latest version installed is 0.9.9) on my MacBook for years to convert my DVD's to MP4's. I absolutely LOVE this program and it has helped me add my entire DVD library (over 1500 DVD's) to a hard drive that I can then stream them on my Apple TV. I recently bought a...

Re: Handbrake crashing on new iMac when trying to decode

I downloaded MakeMKV and it is now working when I run it through that software first. Thank you so much for your help!

Re: Handbrake crashing on new iMac when trying to decode

That is very good information. May I ask, if I download MakeMKV how does it work in conjunction with Handbrake? Do I run the disc through it first and then Handbrake it? Also on one of the DVD's where this problem was occuring - once I ran it without choosing "Foreign Audio Search" this time it went...

Handbrake crashing on new iMac when trying to decode

I just installed Handbrake on my new iMac. I have used it for years on both my Macbook and Macbook Pro. Since the new computer I have been able to get 2 of my discs to work. However, I am unable to now. The version I am using is 0.10.0x86_64. My iMac is running OS X Yosemite 10.10.1. I would include...

Re: Handbrake crashing on my new MacBook Pro

I understand that it's not a ripper. That's not what I'm trying to do. I own all of the DVD's I handbrake. The problem isn't ripping. I could handbrake this EXACT same DVD on my other computer (using Handbrake) with no problem. It seems to be something else amiss. Just looking for a little insight. ...

Re: Handbrake crashing on my new MacBook Pro

Well I thought it was fixed but now when I try to encode (?is that the right terminology?) a DVD (I've tried on numerous) Handbrake is now saying that it's completed but it's not done. The mp4 is only a few minutes long and it's not viewable. Specifically it has color squares running up and down the...

Handbrake crashing on my new MacBook Pro

I have been using Handbrake for years on my old MacBook. I have now transitioned to a MacBook Pro. However, since I have installed Handbrake onto my "new" computer it has not worked. Today I deleted and re-installed Handbrake to make sure that wasn't an issue. I also have been searching the forum bu...

Re: Subtitles on DVD but not going on MP4

That worked beautifully! Thank you so much! Your help is greatly appreciated. :D :D :D
No forced packets, and the correct track is…just above the threshold (1679 / 10 = 167). You want the 2nd English track (4th subtitle track overall), Burned In checked, and Forced Only UNCHECKED.

Re: Subtitles on DVD but not going on MP4

Thank you for your replys. It is very much appreciated. The specific movie I am working on right now is called Eastern Promises. There are a few scenes with Russian. If possible I'd rather not have the entire movie with closed captions showing. I have found with all my other movies (i.e. Game of Thr...

Okay I tried doing as suggested however, it did not work. Does anyone else have any ideas? I can make it have all the words closed captioned but I don't want it to. I just need the words that are not in English...

Subtitles on DVD but not going on MP4

Hello there. I searched and could not find an answer to this. Sorry if it's already out there. I feel as though I've done my due dilegence (although many smarter minds than mine are on this forum). I am trying to get subtitles to show up on my MP4. BUT I don't want the entire thing with subtitles. I...

Problems HandBraking P90X2

I am having problems HandBraking my new P90X2. I have been pressing the "alt" button in order to scan only the title that I am wanting to encode (I think that's the term). Which works...eventually. The program gets all the way through, shows that "Pas 1 of 1, 100%" but then sits for a VERY long time...

2012 DVD not encoding

I am trying to put my DVD "2012" onto my external hard drive in MP4 format to then be played on my PS3. When I choose the source I use the alt/option key in order to choose only the main title. Then I press "start" to begin the encoding process. In about 5 seconds I get the message that the encode i...

Re: Crashes while loading Mission Impossible 4

I tried to do this but it isn't working for me. It starts to transcode but then crashes. I think it's just that the disc is new and has some new form of copyright protection.

Using Handbrake on my Mac to convert so I can play on my PS3

I am new to HandBrake so please bare with me. I've been using a combination of Mac the Ripper and Popcorn for years now. I have now found HandBrake and from what I understand it is quite superior. Here is my goal: To take all of my DVD's and "rip" (I am using the right term?) them to whatever format...
