Re: DVD with hidden videos 'easter eggs'

I have a DVD that I've converted using SuperHQ 480 preset, checking the m4v file I am not finding the 'hidden' video files that are included on the DVD. I was curious how one might go about extracting 'easter egg' type clips that are included on a DVD? If it's a video in the DVD menu, HandBrake won...

Audio Selection for Preset

I don't think this is possible with the audio selection, but I figured I'd ask anyway. I would really like to create an audio selection like how the old "High" preset behaved. I'd like the first output track to be the first source track converted to AAC, and the second and succeeding tracks to be al...

Re: HandBrake Ignoring --subtitle-default Option

OK, sorry about that. I forgot I was using a custom build. I just tried your latest nightly and it has the same issue. Thanks. Started: HandBrake --min-duration 1 --previews 40:0 --input "D:\DVD\Doctor Who 0035 The Faceless Ones (Animated) (1967)\D1\THE_FACELESS_ONES_D1" --title 3 --format av_mkv --...

Re: HandBrake Ignoring --subtitle-default Option

I did build it myself (so I could enable FDK). I'll try your latest release and see if there is a difference.

Thanks.

Re: HandBrake Ignoring --subtitle-default Option

Both MediaInfo and mkvmerge are saying it's set. I only noticed it recently because I have VLC installed on a new machine and it is showing the subtitles by default (normally, I change VLC's Input/Codecs Subtitle track ID from -1 to 0 to stop auto-playing of subtitles regardless of that flag). I che...

HandBrake Ignoring --subtitle-default Option

Description of problem or question: I have always used --subtitle-default=none to ensure that none of the subtitles tracks is flagged as default. This use to work. Now HandBrake is always marking the first subtitles track as default. This happens for both DVDs and Blu-rays. Steps to reproduce the p...

I'm pretty sure the setting is available on macOS. Thanks!
What I do is use an AutoIt script to open HB. What is does is:
1. Open HB and close "Source Selection."
2. Move HB to my preferred screen position.
3. Open the Queue Window and move it to my desired screen position.

Because the alternative (ibdvdread) can't handle angles.

Re: HandBrake quits after 14 frames on some titles

The first thing I would do is install a much more modern version of HandBrake.

When this sort of thing happens to me, the first thing I try is to disable LibDVDNav. If that doesn't work, I extract the title with MakeMKV, and transcode that.

Re: ShutDown after encode with HandbrakeCLI

What I do on Windows is, if I'm calling the cli from a script, I call shutdown when it's done. If I'm calling it programmatically (background process), I call InitiateSystemShutdownEx when it's done.

Why would you completely retranscode a file with HandBrake just to remux it?

Re: Too many titles!

There are several ways of dealing with this that I've found useful: 1. Rip the disc with AnyDVD. The correct mpls will often be in the disc.inf file the tool creates. 2. Load up the original disc in MakeMKV and it will often tell you the correct mpls. 3. Play the disc with PowerDVD, VLC, etc. and lo...

Re: Is there a way to disable "Source Selection" at application startup?

I only find it a minor annoyance, nothing like the OP feels. As to dismissing "source selection" with ESC: sure you can do that, but it's irrelevant as everything will still be grayed out.

Thanks

Re: Is there a way to disable "Source Selection" at application startup?

I hate this, too. I liked the way it was before this behavior was introduced. Sometimes I just want to tweak one of my presets, or peruse what options a setting has. It's a little annoy to have to wait until a needless file scans just to access the interface.

Re: Programming Language and CLI

I use it for two things:

1. In a command-line tool I wrote to parse discs and generate queue files of jobs.
2. As a backend transcoder in a GUI tool I wrote that loads the above queue files.

Re: Judder-free, 60 FPS telecine (?)

Too late! HandBrake already looks and operates like a Swiss Army knife. I don't believe that's true. It certainly doesn't have all the knobs that something like ffmpeg has, nor does it take the place of muxer/demuxers like mkvtoolnix, or audio/video editors like avidemux or Audacity. It especially ...

I've heard the develops say multiple times they're not interested in Handbrake becoming a "swiss army knife," just a solid video transcoder.

It's a commercial one. The underside, with an inscription of a media company on the innermost ring, seems to indicate it, even though I forgot what a burned one looks like.
