That honestly wouldn't surprise me in the slightest. I always seem to be the one to have obscure problems like this. :)

Re: Weird behaviour when Blu-ray source folder contains "."

Fantastic, it worked like a charm. Thank you. :)

This must've only been an issue with the nightlies, surely? I'm surprised I was the first person to stumble upon this bug, I can't be the only one who names their Blu-ray backups in the "scene" way with full stops instead of spaces...

Re: Weird behaviour when Blu-ray source folder contains "."

No, never. I happily encoded with the official build from the ppa on 12.04 since I made the move to Ubuntu from Windows on this server 18 months ago. The issue happens with all releases by the way, not just this one. Well, all Blu-ray folders with full stops in the path. I tried with the folder rena...

Weird behaviour when Blu-ray source folder contains "."

Hi, to get straight to the point: I just went up to Ubuntu Server 14.04 last week, I am currently using the nightlies (svn6205) of handbrake-cli and gtk (I have a GUI installed for VNC use but for other stuff, I exclusively use the HandBrakeCLI normally but this bug/weirdness also happened for me wi...

Re: How to deal with DTS-HD Master Audio

The (lossless) DTS-HD MA stream contains a (lossy) DTS core stream, to offer backwards compatibility for older players.

"Passing through" audio doesn't encode it (it literally just passes the audio without processing it), you need to encode the stream to AC3 with ffmpeg.

Re: Breaking Bad blu-ray conversion - file size trouble

I had the same thing with Breaking Bad. I typically encode at 1080p at CRF 19 (x264-preset=veryslow*). I did that for the BB boxset and the episodes from seasons 1 and 2 all came out at 8+gb (nearly 11gb for one or two - I intend to go back and up the CRF a bit for these 2 seasons). But then it got ...

Re: Handbrake Conversion Process Web Monitor?

I was just thinking about this a few minutes ago - it would certainly be a helpful addition. It wouldn't need to present much data, just output name, percentage done, maybe average/current fps, time elapsed/remaining. Maybe with a configurable update interval. Of course, it's just a nice thing to ha...
