Re: Handbrake dubbing on my Mac just slowed WAY down

Use MakeMKV to generate the mkv file from your DVD source. Then feed Handbrake that mkv file and let it do its thing. You can point Handbrake to a folder that contains your mkv files and then just add them to the queue in Handbrake. Make sure to tell Handbrake where to put the finished product, espe...

Re: Not so much 4K video compatible.

Thanks for the thoughts and the attitude.

I'm not asking for anything more then just some idea of what's going on.
No preferred schedule, just curious as to whether the issue is even on their radar.

As to "it will happen when it happens", how very Zen of you.

Re: Not so much 4K video compatible.

Are there any thoughts on when/if Handbrake will properly implement handling 4K UHD mkv files?
My logs and such have been sitting seemingly untouched for about 6 weeks now.

Re: auto naming writes a forward slash instead of a colon in the file name

Finder even in macOS Catalina considers the : to be an illegal filename character. Error will come up "Try using a name with fewer characters or with no punctuation marks."

Go figure.

Re: Not so much 4K video compatible.

Updated information. The distortion I'm seeing may be caused by a combination of possibly incompatible setting between my AV receiver and my AppleTV. I can get it to work, but I'm seeing some pixelation which may be the result of loss of data, given how much Handbrake is removing from the source. Pe...

Re: Subtitles not transferring

I've run into this problem when ripping 4K movies with a different software program. Sometimes it brings the subtitles over, sometimes it doesn't.

Re: Not so much 4K video compatible.

The Matroska setting won't solve my issues as it still keeps me with an mkv-format file. I need to convert to an mp4 or m4v.

Re: Not so much 4K video compatible.

I tried the Plex Server. It wouldn't handle TV shows properly. I will give the Matroska setting a whirl, rather then the Apple 2160.
