Re: Distributed encoding

I ran the farm because I didn't have identical hardware, or even the same OS. The gains depend on your level of processing, one of those old scripts still slows a 6 core to 2-3 fps. When I went from 6 crappy PCs with 1 decent video card that ripped at deinterlacing, deivtc and deblocking to 3 decent...

Selection for autocrop width only

Broadcast sources being what they are, with interlacing, macroblocks, artifacts and other atrocities, most times they can be dealt with by the downscale height and they're canceled/averaged out or cleaned up by the encoder deblocking. Yes, this even happens with 720p as a good quantity of it is scal...

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

Could also be interlaced vs progressive. Lately more shows seem better matched on a field basis, i've had some 1080i slip through on my 720 input profile and turned out perfectly fine. Looks like the main difference is 24 fps is put through with repeating frames rather than being telecined. I've bee...

Re: sensible *.wmv transcode settings

For wmv I don't use any formula in particular, it's deblocking and whatnot are at odds with h264 so the file sizes are larger. For low bitrate wmv I use HB deblock and the nr= setting for x264, this all varies based on size and quality of wmv content. For good quality SD content I use nr=50-100, for...

Re: Splitting Chapters into separate files, automatically

(which again could be flawed because bounds checking would be impossible). No bounds checking needed, if it's not there, it won't code it unless you explicitly tell it to.

Interesting thuban development

I rip 1080 content to a lower resolution using fast deinterlace, it runs faster than the normal setting but puts out files with the same quality and exact same file size. The regular encode rate is 125fps and 70% processor utilization. If I bump up the fsb, lower the multiplier so the cpu is at the ...

Re: Non-zero time lost from zero frames

I've had those on recent tv show dvds as well, makes me think their raw shoots are going right into mpeg ts for broadcast and dvds are program stream extractions of those. This kind of makes sense as bd are ts based and dvds are the odd process.

Re: restricting reference frames

A separate 3rd party SW area would be more appropriate. This is a result of trusting handbrake whether through other developers coding in HB specific code or users selecting HB as their end process encoder. Discussion here isn't an issue of respect, HB is not infallible and should be included in any...

Get those all the time in transport streams, is due to differences between the transport time stamps and the program time stamps, sometimes the render stamp as well.

Re: Handbrake CLI and NVidia Tesla GPU accelerator

I don't blame you, still a lot of bugs from what I gathered. The NV coding rates and quality blew AMD out of the water at any rate. 4-6 months should see a decent level of debugging, unlocking more settings and a better AMD release. Hopefully there will be some better SDKs by that time that will red...

NVENC looks like it could be the first outside of heavy duty hardware for real hw encoding, it's in Kepler 3rd gen. on which includes the tesla k20s. Dedicated encoder onboard in addition to Cudas.

Re: borders/mask and no scale option

I suppose that is true, I've spent too much time reframing and sizing for custom anamorphic lately to remember that. So I guess that just leaves the border thing. The very simplest would be a save frame which would just use the crop settings as a fill area.

Tapes still exist sadly and are a PITA already to get transferred. What I'm asking for are two closely related options, if even just CLI. First would be an option for no scale, set the crop, specify "no scale" (as an option or sub option of existing) and entering w&l would be unnecessa...

Re: unrecognized file type

I've had avidemux v2.6 (all other versions crash on my systems) and vlc read unreadables, usually if handbrake won't, FFmpeg or FFdshow won't either. Sometimes MkvMerge will but haven't seen it with DAT files. Mux into MKV or TS and HB will read it.
