Downmixing from Atmos - maintain Atmos metadata?

Description of problem or question: Recently picked up an Roku Ultra, which can support Atmos, but only with Dolby Digital Plus (E-AC3). When I transcode an Atmos title from TrueHD, I don't see a way to maintain / extract the Atmos metadata to apply to the E-AC3 track. I don't believe (could be wro...

Well, sure. But they'd be wrong.

Re: Start with DTS-MA or DTS when Mixing Down to Stereo AAC?

DTS-MA is a DTS track that has information in it to correct the lossy audio back to lossless. In actuality, the two are usually "one track" on a BD, and players that do not understand "MA" just ignore that data, and play the "lossy core". - Indeed it is. I probably should have asked TrueHD vs AC3. ...

Start with DTS-MA or DTS when Mixing Down to Stereo AAC?

Description of problem or question: When converting my blurays for watching on my tablet, is it better to mix down to stereo from the DTS-MA or should I use the DTS for my source audio? I realized that DTS-MA is superior to DTS, but if its being mixed down to 320kbs stereo AAC, I would guess there'...

Re: Particularly slow enode

The 5 hours wasn't surprising. But out of nowhere, this particular title jumped to 10.

Particularly slow enode

Description of problem or question: I recently switched to encoding with a "slow" setting that has been taking about 5 hours for a movie. I'm not in a particular rush, and any benefit in quality is worth the compromise. But I'm currently running an encode that is set to take 10 hours and I can't fi...

The new system takes some getting used to, but it's more explicit and more flexible than before.
Guess so! Glad that I'm not going crazy. Maybe its time for me to go back and see the updates in the documentation.

Thanks!

Re: [Fixed] HB Won't Save My Audio Settings w/ Custom Presets

Is that somehow different than "Update Selected Preset?" Nobody is asking for an autosave feature. Just an acknowledgment that this is an actual - if rare - bug that is occurring. I have created and tried to update 4 user presets. None of which are saving. When I choose "Update" I get the confirmati...

Re: [Fixed] HB Won't Save My Audio Settings w/ Custom Presets

I'm having the same problem with the nightly builds. I set up a default using both the "configure defaults" button as well as the traditional Audio tab. Neither are being saved. If I choose a different preset and then switch back to mine, the audio settings are gone. Even if I hit "restore defaults"...

Best way to encode 24-bit PCM

Been loving Handbrake for years! Amazing piece of software that I'm incredibly grateful for. It is my understanding that HB still doesn't passthru PCM audio, at least not 24-bit PCM. Whats the best way / closest setting to passthru for 24-bit PCM? I read that FLAC is only lossless for 16-bit PCM. Is...

Re: DTS-HD Passthru failing on one title

DTS-HD Passthru failing on one title

Longtime HB user, and normally have no problems. Using HB to archive my bluray library for use across devices. Today, though, I ran into a bug with a particular title (I presume) since its the same pre-set I always use. Using DTS-HD passthru on Wreck-It Ralph, I end up with the lossy DTS audio track...

Oh, well how 'bout that. I figured it was something along those lines that I was overlooking, but thought I'd ask.

Thanks for the reply and for the amazing program. My media consumption habits wouldn't be the same without Handbrake.

File Size for DTS-HD vs DTS: Should they be identical?

I encode my bluray discs for use on my tablets and smartphones. No reason for Plex to do transcoding on the fly. I generally create a file shrinking the actual resolution down to 720 x XXX, based on aspect ratio (old habit from lower resolution devices), and compress using RF22. With blurays coming ...

Re: Playback fails on Encode from LPCM

Weird. I was using my usual preset that I use for all my bluray encodes. Might have tried the AAC-FDK for some reason, too. Was thinking about it, but not sure what I did in the end.

I'll double check and try again. Thanks!

Never had a problem before. But this is my only title that only has LPCM soundtrack. I chose to downmix i...

Re: Trouble converting WTV file

I suspect there's a broader issue with WTV support and only a few of us even testing it.

Most of the problems I've had lately (see my Hanging at 99% or 100%) post below yours. All of my problem files are WTVs or started as WTVs.

quite patient.
It was stuck on 100% for more than an hour before I killed the process.
The other file that failed was stuck on 99.99% for almost 2 hours before I killed it.

Been using handbrake for years with no problems. Haven't changed my settings in months. Recently HB started hanging at 99.99% or 100% without moving to the next title in the queue. Tends to happen more when converting to mp4, but occasionally hangs when converting to MKV. I believe it only happens w...
