Re: How can I play a 4K UHD disk on 2K monitor?

Was thinking of getting an UHD bluray drive and Powerdvd 17 upgrade but doubt it would play on my 1080p plasma or my 2K Acer gaming monitor.

Re: How can I play a 4K UHD disk on 2K monitor?

So I won't need a HDCP 2.2 Capable screen? The bluray player will downsize it? Will it look better than the 1080p version when downscaled?

Thanks

How can I play a 4K UHD disk on 2K monitor?

Hi,

Few months ago I bought Logan UHD version but got a small problem.. I don't own a UHD blueray player. So was wondering if I got a UHD bluray drive is it possible to use handbrake to convert it to 2K?

Thanks

Re: command line option to scan dvd and rip chapter by chapter

Hi, Here is code snippet that details my options that I'm using right now. Over all I'm pretty happy with it. Looks good and file sizes are about 80,000 kb per 20 minute episode: #Audio options $audio = ' -a 1 -E fdk_haac high -R auto -B 128 -6 stereo' #Source options $source = ' -t 1 --angle 1 -c 0...

Re: command line option to scan dvd and rip chapter by chapter

Ok. Thanks. Will probably rip to hard drive first and then encode. Like the idea of the CLI because it seems more customizable than the GUI and even though I'm a novice newbie I like to learn..

Re: command line option to scan dvd and rip chapter by chapter

So you don't recommend ripping and encoding in real time? Thing is copying the DVD to disk takes like 20 minutes. Feels quicker doing it on the fly but I could be wrong. Thanks.

I have a license for Slysoft Anydvd that runs behind the scenes. For example I can use the HB gui on whatever DVD Anydvd scans.

Re: command line option to scan dvd and rip chapter by chapter

Well I'm trying to convert my old Xmen cartoons DVD set onto either x264 or x265. I found a powershell script that I was able to modify that that would take every .Vob file on the disk and convert it to a mp4. That worked. Thing is there are other vob files that I don't want it to convert so I guess...

command line option to scan dvd and rip chapter by chapter

Hi,

I have been trying to write a command line argument for HandbrakeCLI to open up a DVD and go through processing chapter by chapter and automatically naming them. Having trouble with the commands.

Can anyone help please?

Re: Integrated iGPU: Enable QSV w/ Win10 + Handbrake?

ok. Will do but fwiw i usually use the stock default settings in the gui. Maybe I should spend some time and tweak them on the command line.

Re: Integrated iGPU: Enable QSV w/ Win10 + Handbrake?

10-bit encoding can have slight benefits when encoding an 8-bit source, simply because it increases the internal precision of the encoder. Sure but I imagine for most people in most situations it won't make much difference. Or maybe we could turn it up to 11 bit :) They already have 12 bit and fwiw...

Re: Integrated iGPU: Enable QSV w/ Win10 + Handbrake?

Well I have a couple 6th gen cpus one a 6700 and another albeit slower one on my laptop. Just did an 8 bit Intel qsv encode and had to drop the quality setting to 26 to get acceptable file size but the banding was terrible. The horror. Redoing it on the CPU now as 10 bit though it will take 3x - 4X ...

Re: Integrated iGPU: Enable QSV w/ Win10 + Handbrake?

Is it possible to compile qsv 10 bit myself? I mean you don't officially support 10bit x265 but have the dll available because i presume someone compiled the code. Love to know how.

Thanks

10 bit source? You mean the handbrake source code? Well I was able to compile handbrake to get fdk aac audio support but have no idea how to compile 10 bit support short of downloading precompiled 10 bit libraries that worked for me last time. As my 6700k has only hybrid 10 bit hevc support doubt ev...

Re: Integrated iGPU: Enable QSV w/ Win10 + Handbrake?

I feel really stupid. Its in the drop down selection list 'Intel QSV x265'. I just don't see 10 bit mode. Probably because I have a 6th gen cpu I'm guessing?

Seems like Staxrip lets you select intel qsv so there has to be a way for handbrake.

Re: Benchmarking DVD drive transfer rates bottlenecking Handbrake

That last post about Riplock was very interesting. Curious I benchmarked all of my DVD and BD drives and found that non of them reach the 16X advertised max rates. Best I got was 12X and that's after spinning up and down from 4X. So the rate never stays consistent and will most likely be a source of...
