Re: Memory Release Problem

1.3.3 was released some time ago. Is there a reason you're using an old version?

It also appears you're using the broken version from the Debian repository, rather than the official distribution.

Re: Best bang-for-buck upgrade?

If you are taking advantage of the QSV hardware in your processor, going with more cores may not be that much help; your most likely slow-down is in the CPU-based filters you're using. Providing a log of your typical encode would be helpful to see what filters you're using. If you're doing CPU-base ...

Rip with MakeMKV, queue the MKV files up for handbrake to handle while you do other things. Get all the DVD handling out of the way quickly.

Re: Default output path the same as input path - possible?

Windows, specify the path in Preferences->Output files with {source_path}

You need to be careful with this, because it CAN overwrite your source if you disregard the warnings. Make sure the output file name is not the same as the input.

Re: Handbrake doesn't remember the source folder after today's packages update

Also note that the Arch repository is not under the control of the handbrake team, and is listed as a "known broken" distribution. It would seem you've run into one of the reasons for that. A change of packages for the OS should not affect a properly-built handbrake install.

Handbrake does not remove encryption on its own. Ripping tools, such as MakeMKV, will remove the encryption and give you files handbrake can process.

Re: Help for old TV Series DVDs

You could start with the Wikipedia explanation of telecine. Interlacing is part of that.

The primary thing with "detelecine" is correcting the frame rate correction, i.e., when film was captured at one frame rate, and broadcast at a different frame rate.

Re: Encoding consistently fails prematurely

Copying a DVD to an ISO file doesn't remove encryption, unless you have a special utility doing it. I occasionally use BDlot (very old program, no longer supported) to make "decrypted ISO" files. But, because I usually use MakeMKV, I usually just told it to make a standard ISO copy, and le...

Re: Can I convert a movie's audio codec only?

There are multiple graphic front ends to ffmpeg available. It has the advantage of being available for many platforms, and a lot of people write front ends to match their (personal or group) idea of the "perfect interface" for their operating system.

The logs show problems reading the source (not getting the number of frames expected). What are you using to decrypt it, and are you using a physical source, or a disk image? The "fail at the end" might be when handbrake rewrites the MP4 index, and hits a permission error (you can write, b...

Not with handbrake - it's going to do the video.

ffmpeg can do it - they even have examples of doing that on their help page.

Generally speaking, handbrake is not suffer from "disk I/O bottlenecks". I'm reading AND writing to a gigabit-capable NAS, at far below its capabilities. I can do multiple simultaneous rips with MakeMKV while handbrake is encoding, and handbrake keeps the 4-core 8-thread i5 CPU saturated. ...

Re: Constant crashing with 4k video

Per s55 in the linked github issue, it's called "process isolation" in preferences. It defaults to "on" when you install the nightly, but changing it will "stick" as you update.

It allows the queue to start multiple encodes if there is processing capability available.

OK, as pointed out by mduell, this is part of something new in the nightly, the ability to submit multiple simultaneous jobs. I would suggest disabling that feature, and try the encodes again. If it still crashes, you should get better error messages, at least. There's a similar discussion on github...
