Re: Better Handle 96 kHz and 192 kHz Sample Rates

I hope at some point we can add LPCM passthrough and support for higher sample rates. The latter will require more than simply adding 96 & 192 because of compatibility concerns, but I have some ideas how to handle that down the line. I appreciate the consideration of the higher sample rates and can...

Re: Better Handle 96 kHz and 192 kHz Sample Rates

I knew as soon as I hit submit that I should have put that in Mb... I primarily use Handbrake as an archival tool, with goals of creating fairly decent quality video at original source resolution, and no modification to the original audio. My usual video workflow is 1080p H264 @ RF 22 for BD sources...

Re: Unnecessary Downsampling of 96 kHz and 192 kHz Sources

We should add those samplerates eventually. Not sure about PCM passthru, but since it has no bitstream metadata (unlike Dolby and DTS codecs), FLAC works just fine to re-encode PCM. FLAC works wonderfully within Handbrake for re-encoding LPCM with no loss of information (I'm very stingy on space......

Re: Better Handle 96 kHz and 192 kHz Sample Rates

The explanation I got many moons back is that HB, as a core principal, aims to compress everything. Multichannel pcm is VERY large; other than that, the logistical problem of passing pcm audio to h264 and h265 is that many media players won't recognize it. Been there, done that. I have no feelings ...

Re: Unnecessary Downsampling of 96 kHz and 192 kHz Sources

No container can store LPCM, but MKV can store FLAC. Not to take away from your report, but... MKV files definitely can handle LPCM audio; About a third of the BDs I rip with MakeMKV contain 24-bit LPCM audio. Fair enough. Thanks for the clarification. Handbrake does not now and has never passed th...

Unnecessary Downsampling of 96 kHz and 192 kHz Sources

Please describe the problem in as much detail as possible: Handbrake downsamples input audio with sample rates in excess of 48 kHz even when the selected encoder is able to handle a higher sample rate. If the selected encoder can support the sample rate of the input (and that sample rate is a predi...

Better Handle 96 kHz and 192 kHz Sample Rates

Please describe what you would like to see added to HandBrake: Better support for source audio with 96 kHz and 192 kHz sample rates Why would you like to see this added: Source audio with 96 kHz and 192 kHz sample rates are common in LPCM sources on both DVD and Blu Ray. Handbrake does not support ...
