Re: Which settings fix interlacing?

Re: Ps3 ...Screen always black

I have an xbox 360, but oftentimes I just use the ps3 preset with some options manipulation. Once in awhile I, too, get the black screen on playback. No video. No sound. I don't know what's going on. Hmm....

Re: xbox 360- black screen

update:

I installed ffdsow. The video now plays in Media Player Classic. It stutters, though. Doesn't play in the xbox. I guess it was a bad encode.

Re: xbox 360- black screen

Thanks for moving into the proper section.....I think.

So is this problem too tough for you all? :mrgreen:

By the way, Media Player Classic uses quite a bit of cpu power TRYING to play the video. Another clue, perhaps?

Come on, jbrjake, you're always helping me out. Where you at?

xbox 360- black screen

Wow, it seems like I'm always coming here with some kind of problem :lol: . Well, this time it's a "black screen" I get. Sorry, I have no handbrake log. And sorry if this post is a bit long. Oh yea, and sorry if the whole xbox 360 thing gets a bit tedious for some. Anyway, I posted THIS up at xbosce...

Re: Sighhh... Interlaced, Telecine

Jbrjake, when I look more at the Fairuse encode (enlarging the player window), I see that this ALSO has those lines. It's unnoticeable on an sdtv, but on hdtv, it might not look so hot. So, it must be the dvd itself. I guess it's not necessary to post any shots. Handbrake was doing its job. Thanks f...

Re: Sighhh... Interlaced, Telecine

Alright, I can do that. If....you are indeed interested. I'll have to encode a chapter again using the settings you recommended. Then I'll have to upload a screen shot. How would I go about uploading or posting screen shots on here?

Re: Containers and Xbox360

The 360 will only accept stereo for aac. I always encode (well, usually) h264/aac within an mp4 container. I only get stereo sound, but that's fine for me. All my encodes work, except for the occasional one that has me perplexed. Just use the presets and all will go well. You can manipluate the enco...

Re: Sighhh... Interlaced, Telecine

I tried as you suggested, jbrjak. Same result and with lines running throughout. Lines sort of like streaky-like lines that run through the faces, clothes, etc. Not looking too good. I'm not gonna worry about it. I was just curious as to why Handbrake has a tough time sometimes. By the way, the Fair...

Re: Sighhh... Interlaced, Telecine

[21:07:05] + Deblock (pp7) (default settings) Deblocking can easily lead to results like that. Doing image filtering like deblocking or denoising or deinterlacing *always* degrades picture quality to some extent. They add extra processing cruft and throw away detail, so they should only be used whe...

Wow, you really do love those logs, don't you? :) Well, I don't know what' going on with Handbrake, but there is absolutely no doubt that Fairuse produced much better quality. Here is a bunch of mumble-jumble that the activity window left behind. Can you make any sense of it? [21:07:01] hb_init: che...

Re: Sighhh... Interlaced, Telecine

Back one more time. I encoded the same chapter using Fairuse Wizard. Same Framerate using Deinterlacing. Now, I'm not trying to compare the two programs. This is for experimental sake only and to possibly help people out in the future. Well, the Fairuse encode looks WAY better. So should I assume th...

Hello. I'm also having a problem with (what I THINK is) interlaced material. But I'm a little confused. The movie is "Wicker Park". I have used various xbox 360 encoding options (h264). My first encode didn't use any Deinterlacing. I then tried Deinterlacing using both Fast and Slowest. I also tried...

Thank you, jbrjake. I didn't provide a LOG the first time because Handbrake doesn't generate one. Is there an option in the GUI somewhere? Maybe I'm blind. So what I did was copy and paste from the CLI window before it closed itself. So with problem DVDs I guess I can always try VFR, or continue enc...

I had already unlocked the dvd previously using "dvdshrink". I then converted to h264 with no problems at all. Maybe you should try using "anydvd".

Maybe somebody can throw me some feedback here? I'm converted "Jackass", the movie using both XVID and H264. The XVID movie plays fine (quality isn't so hot, even at 1500 Kbps...but that's another story). But.....the H264 one for SOME reason just doesn't want to play back using Media Player Classic ...
