Re: Looking for Recommendations: External 4K BluRay Drive (USB)

I had the same question some month ago. After reading a lot in the MakeMKV forum, I decided for a Asus BW-16D1HT and an external USB adaptor for my UHD BluRays. But, the firmware is very important. Read in the MakeMKV forum, which version is best and downgrade, if your firmware is too new. And, if U...

Re: 7.1 audio for Apple TV 4K possible?

You could try, if AAC works for you. AAC in HandBrake supports 7.1 channels, and AppleTV 4k supports AAC.
The EAC3 7.1 issue needs to be fixed in FFmpeg. https://github.com/HandBrake/HandBrake/issues/1085

Re: Reducing video file size without losing much image quality

If you use x265, the "Slower" preset is the first one, where all the x265 magic is starting to happen. But, it takes a very long time to encode.

Fix sent, it may take a week or so for it to be available in nightly builds.

I can confirm, that with the patch applied, the video from above opens and converts nicely in HandBrake.

Re: how to get h256 main10 'high' setting

If you want to force high tier for x265, you need to add

Code: Select all

high-tier
to the additional options in the video tab.
https://x265.readthedocs.io/en/default/cli.html
However, HandBrake will normally choose the best option for you.

Re: Tune custom NLMeans parameters

Thanks for the info. Encoding time has increased from about 35 hours (without NLMeans) to around 49 hours (with NLMeans). So, tomorrow evening I will know how the complete movie looks like with denoising.

Thanks Bradley. What will happen, if temporal frames for film content will exceed 3? Will it introduce ghosting?

In 1.3.0 the pp7 Deblock filter was replaced with FFmpeg Deblock filter.

But, I have no idea how the parameters of the pp7 deblock filter compare with the FFmpeg Deblock filter.

Tune custom NLMeans parameters

I have two BluRay movies which do have bad noise in it. It is a noise that flickers around in the movie very annoyingly (“dancing dots”). The result is, that the encoded movie has 20 GB in size (compared to 5 GB that my non-grainy cartoons normally do have). So, I was testing different NLMeans prese...

This writes the 3gpp track 'titl' tag to your movie. In ffmpeg this is shown as "handler_name" and Mediainfo shows it as "title".

Re: H265 in new HandBrake 1.3.0 gives 30-60% higher bitrate

I need to admit, that I adapted my x265 options a bit for HB 1.3.0 to use the advanced features that x265 3.2.1 brings, but for preset medium and CRF=19 I don't see such a massive increase in bitrate.

This is normal and expected? Yes, it is expected.
