With upcoming changes to data protection and privacy laws in Europe coming into effect soon, we thought this would be a good time to remind everyone that we do have a privacy policy.
This applies to all users and visitors world-wide.

We have made a few changes to the language to make it clearer in relation to this new regulation but fundamentally, the terms and your rights are unchanged.

If you have any questions about this, please feel free to ask in the General Forum

Re: HandBrake 1.0.2 Discussion Thread

Curious... Are the custom presets deleted during the upgrade?
I had spent week fine-tuning my settings to my environment, and now they appear to be gone.

Re: HandBrake 1.0.2 Discussion Thread

Is multi-pass encoding a thing of the past?
Could not find it in the options.

Crashing While Adding To Queue

Recently my computer has developed a rather odd, and annoying problem... When I attempt to add a 2nd job to the queue, Handbrake crashes! Specifically, when drilling down into the Stream subdirectory of a BRD, with the 'details' options set in Windows Explorer (Need to see the file size), Handbrake ...

Re: CPU Utilization?

Failed to mention...
Running on Win 7 Ultimate x64

My encode settings are custom, and geared for quality, not speed.

CPU Utilization?

I have a SuperMicro 7037A-i with 2 XEON E5-2665s' & 128GB of RAM. My question is about CPU utilization... Other than launching the process with a high priority, is there any configuration that can be done to optimize HandBrake's CPU settings? A single HandBrake instance will only load the system to ...

Odd Pixilation Problem

I have been using the same custom preset to encode BRD rips for about two years, which works just fine, on most material. That being said... I am attempting to encode the Breaking Bad pilot episode, and I am seeing some odd pixilation. Specifically, in very fast moving scenes, where the edits cut su...

Re: Win 2K8 R2 Support?

I did more testing on the Win 2K8 server...

It seems the failed jobs are in some way related to the sub-sampling of the image size.
I was able to run 17 parallel HB jobs, to completion, provided I left the image at the native resolution.
Odd, huh?!?!?

Re: Win 2K8 R2 Support?

The only difference between the incode profile of the working & failed jobs: I typically rescale H-rez to 1280, which was the case with the failed job, and I failed to change it from 1920 on the successfully completed job. Just out of curiosity, I will rerun the same job on the 2K8 system, with H-re...

TEMP File Location?

I have a server that I use for Handbrake conversions...12 Cores, 72GB RAM, Win2K8 R2 Enterprise. Unfortunately, C: is only 1TB, which I'm pretty sure is the cause of my issue... Rather than run a single instance of Handbrake with a serial queue, I can typically run about 15 parallel instances of Han...
