Re: Copy source filename to destination file during encode job

Here is an example of a Windows CMD script that does something like you're looking for. It is called with the name of the source file, asks the interpreter to give it the file name without the extension, then plugs things in to make two copies of the source, one as an MKV file, one as an MP4, and f...

Description of problem or question: Hello everyone, I recently started to get into scripting for my encodes. As I am new to this, I found an example that I could use and it seems to work well. The issue I'm having is this...the first encode job runs and produces the file encoded1.mp4, but when the ...

Re: Slow encoding when using queue file made in GUI

@mduell thanks for the reply. You are right about scripting. However that is something I have not used yet. Not very good at scripting but I know I need to start doing that. I have skimmed the scripting section of the forum, but I know I need to start using that with CLI.

Slow encoding when using queue file made in GUI

Description of problem or question: Hello everyone, I use HandbrakeCLI on a Debian 10 headless system and recently decided to encode a TV series I have on DVD. Instead of manually starting the encodes for each episode, I decided I would use a queue file that I created in Handbrake GUI on a Windows ...

Re: DVD (non-bluray) encode settings

Thanks @Woodstock, I'll give those settings a try. Eventually I'll go thru AVIsynth but like I said, that's another can of worms I'm not ready to open just yet.

DVD (non-bluray) encode settings

Hello everyone, Not sure if the Genereal area or CLI area is the correct place to ask this, so figured here would be the best place to start. I have been using HB CLI for some time and was curious what settings people use for encoding standard DVDs. I have presets that I have setup for blurays (made...

Re: Available parameters for h265??

Actually I'm good with what I'm doing. As I said, there are only a few parameters (maybe eight) that I use that have worked well for me. Some of them didnt when trying out h265 but thats because something changed to where I had to enable a different parameter that wasnt there before in order for ano...

Re: Available parameters for h265??

So has the --threads parameter been removed? I'm unable to specify how many threads to use when encoding in h265. It works fine with h264.

Re: Available parameters for h265??

Thank you @mduell!! This is what I was looking for. I didnt use alot of options when encoding with h264 so having this for h265 gives me an idea of what is still used. Seems like most of what I used in h264 can be used in h265. Many thanks!!

Available parameters for h265??

Hey everyone, Can anyone tell me or point me in the right direction of the parameters that are available for the "extra options" section of the video tab in HB when encoding with h265? I've always used specific parameters in the "advanced tab" when encoding with h264, but some of those parameters re...

Re: Convert Handbrake GUI commands to use in Handbrake CLI

If you do not need features that were added to the GUI in version 1, you can download 0.10.5 for Windows from the archives; it generates the equivalent of the CLI in the encode log. If you can find a copy of 0.9.x and can live within its limits, it can create a batch file from the queue. Sweet! I w...

Convert Handbrake GUI commands to use in Handbrake CLI

Hello, I was wondering if there is any way to convert the commands that are used in the GUI so that I may use them in Handbrake CLI? I know there used to be a CLI query line in the logs but that is no longer there. Is there any way that I can convert a preset I created in the Handbrake GUI to be use...

I have embedded them into the file and it works fine, However I'd prefer to burn the foreign subtitles into the video.

Re: Use SRT to Burn In Subtitles to Video

You need to encode the whole feature or manually offset the subtitle track to sync with the chapter range you requested (chapters 22-25). I believe this will be fixed in version 1.1, but don't quote me on that… I did try to encode the whole feature but got the same results. I forgot to post the log...

I click 'Import SRT' and check the 'Burn In' box but for whatever reason it doesn't work. I have tried different ch...
