PGS to VobSub

I've been using a little program called BDSup2Sub to convert the subtitles. Overall I'm pleased with the results but it has not been updated since 2013. Does anyone know of other programs?

Inconsistent results between HB and FFmpeg x265

Description of problem or question I originally noticed that when I converted a MKV file to an x265 encoded MP4 file that VLC showed severe pixalation issues, e.g. grey blocky screen. After digging around some I found the Extra video options and assigned keyint=1. This resolved the grey blocky scre...

Re: Unable to load custom preset

Just as a side note if the subtitles are stored in PGS format they will always burn-in no matter the setting. I found this out the hard way. I had to convert PGS subtitles to the VOB subtitles.

Re: Adapting GUI encode settings to handbrakecli

No, HandBrake won't just encode Audio. If you want to use HB I'd just encode a short clip, say 5-10 minutes using the --start-at --stop-at switches and then just encode with various audio settings until you find one that works. ffmpeg can copy video and re-encode audio but I have little experience w...

Re: Upgrade of MKV collection from H.264 to H.265 possible?

It might be "cheap" in the US but a single HDD - say a WD red 6tb lists for $290.00 (as of this morning) in Canada on Amazon. I could maybe find it cheaper if I did a little hunting but I just don't have 290 laying around.

Incorrect Value Type when exporting presets (custom or built-in) from GUI to JSON file.

Please describe the problem in as much detail as possible: When Exporting presets from the GUI, the JSON file contains "Incorrect Value Types". For example when exporting a custom preset from the GUI the Value Key of AudioDitherMethod is null but the CLI indicates this as incorrect. While the log s...

Re: Adapting GUI encode settings to handbrakecli

One note about exporting a custom preset from the GUI, you may need to edit the JSON file because some GUI values aren't supported in the CLI. For example some fields are marked as null and the CLI doesn't like this. You're best bet is to do a short encode with your preset and then check the log to ...

Re: Progress printed on different lines

I've just built Handbrake from this commit (which is the parent of the one mentioned above).

https://github.com/HandBrake/HandBrake/ ... cb90106f20

The behavior of the progress indicator is back using a single line both with and without pipe redirection.

Re: Progress printed on different lines

I just tried the same command but left off the 2> ftest.log and received the same result. This behavior only happens on Windows. I built the same nightly for Linux and I got the expected behavior of the progress indication using the same line.

Re: Progress printed on different lines

The command I'm using is:

Code: Select all

handbrakecli -i ftest.mkv -o ftest.mp4 --preset-import-file H265Stereo.json 2> ftest.log
The encoding itself works fine. It's just the pgoress updating with a new line ever time I find annoying.
