Re: iTunes Store Pre-Set

I was looking at that table today too funnily enough. I don't think there is a way to encode anamorphic 640x video with handbrake. When i click the anamoprhic tab the width springs back to 720, but i'd be happy to be proved wrong.

Re: CLI opens and shuts quickly-no rip

I get this exact same problem when trying to run handbrake on a windows vista machine. Happened on my friends vista system too with 0.9.1. I just figured it doesn't run well on pc but i get a feeling where just unlucky. Would love to see what speed the quad core machines at work could encode at :)

Re: AppleTV to support Dolby5.1 Natively

HD + DD 5.1 movie rentals will be on Apple TV only. You won't be able to move it to your computer.

Re: iPhone 1.1.3 Testing

This article on Engadget shows that Die Hard 4.0 is 853x356 i'm guessing that its anamorphic and that this is probably why movie rentals can only be watched on 'current' generation ipods. As older ones probably wouldn't work with the higher res. http://www.engadget.com/2008/01/16/hands-on-with-itune...

I did some tests last night and found the amount of 'blockage' on scene changes various depending on the amount of cropping applied. So ripping chapter 1 of 'Hairspray' 3 times I found that: iPood High Preset, auto cropping: Blockage on first frame or two after a scene change iPod High Preset, no cr...

Hi, i haven't thought about this issue for a long time. I upgraded to the new handbrake round about the time leopard came out and have only recently started to encode movies again. I was on a train yesterday watching hairspray on my iPhone and i notice this issue is back - or perhaps it never went a...

Hi there, you were right. I did three test encodes on a chapter at the end of the 8mile dvd., one on the ipod high preset, one with x2 threads and one with x1 threads. The preset one was very blocky for 2 frames on a couple of scene changes. The x2 thread was less block but it was still there. The x...

Hi there.. yeh it feels like a bug in the encoder but there must be some freaky circumstances to meet for it to show itself cos its just you and me talking about it. I have a 2ghx core2duo macbook (black) so maybe the threading is the issue? allthough i've encoded some dvds and its been fine? im wor...

Hi there, just to let you know that didn't help me.

i'm really not sure why its happening? if i re-encode the same dvd a second time it still block up but on different scene changes so seems almost random. Have gone back to handbrake 82b for now, that works fine. just slower :(

encoding problem - ipod high rez

Hi, love the new handbrake but i've noticed that on shot changes it sometimes blocks up for a frame or too. ie.. long shot of guy stood there (fine) cut to close up and the first frame or two of that shot is blocky. All i'm doing is hitting the ipod high rez setting and encoding. Any ideas what's ha...
