HB 1.2.2 - Log Service Paused - How to restart?

Windows 7 - Handbrake 1.2.2 - Log Service Paused Due to a problem encode/file, I have encountered "Log Service Pausing. Too Many Log messages. This may indicate a problem with your encode." All logs since this problem are now empty / 0kb. How do I restart the Log Service so that logging resumes again?

Re: HE-AAC Audio Missing on Latest Version

Probably a crazy sounding question, but can it be compiled on a Mac rather than Linux?

Re: Handbrake Video Tab - Extra Options?

I understand the parameters.

The difference is that in the old version of HB, the profile setting was ghosted/negated by using the advanced settings.

This time using the text box, it is still active.

Re: Handbrake Video Tab - Extra Options?

The tooltip for "Encoder Profile: Auto/High/Main/Baseline" says 'Sets and ensures compliance with the specified profile'. I want to use all of the Advanced Settings that previously existed in older versions of Handbrake in the text box. Which of these settings will the Encoder Profile setting then o...

Handbrake Video Tab - Extra Options?

Handbrake 1.2.2 - Windows 7 / Windows 10 In older versions of Handbrake, a checkbox existed for "Use Advanced Tab instead". By selecting this ghosted the settings for: x264 Preset, x264 Tune, Fast Decode, H.264 Profile, H.264 Level + Extra Options Then on the Advanced Tab, the user could set various...

Appending -NoSubs to the output filename if subtitles do not exist

I have suggested this as a Feature Request as it currently does not exist: For a conversion that does not include subtitles (i.e. No subtitles are found in the original file) allow a checkbox/option to append the tag -NoSubs to the output filename However, is it possible there could be a workaround ...

Re: HE-AAC Audio Missing on Latest Version

fdkaac.exe / fdkaac.dll is HE-AAC?

In Handbrake 0.10.3 (the last version with FDK available) it shows HE-AAC (FDK) in the list of audio options - is this not fdkaac.exe / fdkaac.dll ?

Re: BUG : Batch encoding to H265 encodes to H264 instead

This makes sense and has always been the normal behavior for as long as I have been using it.

Re: x264 / x265 Video RF Settings Comparison for SD encodes?

Are there any recent comparisons?

Around a year ago (or maybe more) most comparisons seemed to acknowledge that x265 was producing smaller results but the image was not as sharp (often appearing softer).

Is this still the case?

Re: BUG : Batch encoding to H265 encodes to H264 instead

Maybe I am confusing this but just want to be sure before I too waste my hours away. In the old versions, as long as the preset was selected, then file is opened, the settings to be used are that of the already selected preset. Are you saying the preset has to be selected *again* after the file has ...

Re: Custom setting does not hold Audio Stting (Auto-Passthru)

I am having a similar problem though not just with MP3.

I think possibly some of the audio settings are overriding each other, maybe this is a bug...

x264 / x265 Video RF Settings Comparison for SD encodes?

Handbrake 1.2.2 - All O/S When creating SD video encodes I have been using H.264 (x264) for video and RF19 seems to produce the best results (quality and filesize). Are RF settings equivalent when using both H.264 (x264) and H.265 (x265)? (e.g. If I use RF19 in x265 should I expect the same quality ...

Re: HE-AAC Audio Missing on Latest Version

Yes that counts...


However, I have just noticed I actually have "fdkaac.exe" and "fdkaac.dll" available already on my computer.


Can I take either of these (that I already have existing) and follow the Windows steps to add to Handbrake?

General Question or Potential Bug: HB 1.2.2 - Prevent audio from incorrectly upmixing/upsampling?

First audio track is originally English DTS or AC-3 5.1 640kb/s but I want to encode this as AC-3 384kb/s - no issue with this, works fine. However, 2nd audio track (and 3rd, 4th etc.) are usually also AC-3 often around 256kb/s but can also sometimes be as low as 96 kb/s. I would prefer to encode e....
