Re: Wall e problem, log included and I have search the forums...

As of v0.9.3 protected DVD's won't work unless you have VLC installed (or you use another tool to decrypt them first). Look under encrypted DVD's on the link below for more info: http://trac.handbrake.fr/wiki/Sources Not sure it will work with VLC though...I had to rip it down with the very latest v...

VisualHub Discontinued

http://techspansion.com/ Hadn't seen this posted anywhere - so in case folks hadn't heard. On a couple of sites, folks are recommending the snapshot 3 build to replace VH for non-DVD sources. Should be interesting to see who starts creeping onto the boards here... P.S. Thanks for Snapshot 3...so fa...

Re: HandBrake Development Snapshot Builds

I know you're looking for feedback...but my only note is that it seems to be working as designed using my custom ATV/iPhone setting.

Re: newbie--one movie file for both iPhone and Apple TV

You also need to upgrade to .92 so you get all the audio goodness in a single file (nothing like having stereo on the iPhone and the same file playing 5.1 on your ATV). I'm not sure (someone else can comment), whether the anamorphic stuff works on the iPhone in versions prior to .92 - plus a host of...

Re: AppleTV Settings

Actually, it probably isn't it. If it's a music video it was probably shot on film. It's probably telecined, not interlaced. You're going to needlessly throw away picture detail by deinterlacing, most likely. I don't do any music video stuff so good to note that they are usually shot on film. Freis...

Are they the same as the lines in the documentation below? If so read through there and you should have your problem solved.

.92 vs. SVN - Quality Oddity

Thanks in advance, and please let me know if this is more appropriate to ask somewhere else (or not at all) :D I was having some problems with a few titles with A/V syncing right back in March, so I pulled down the lastest SVN a few weeks back (Handbrake Version: 0.9.3 (2008031900)) to see if it sol...

Re: Apple TV help for the newbies

Newbies: Use the Preset. It is there specifically for newbies and average users and functions great and is a nice balance between size and quality. I never have a problem with it when I do my generic encodes... Otherwise your best bet is to read every thread and just keep slowing modifying the prese...

Not specifically Handbrake, but for those using ATV's 2.0.1 software is now available via software update. Some folks are claiming speed improvements on the interface, but the big feature is there is now a GENRES menu in the My Movies area so you can finally sort your HB converted movies instead of ...

I probably should post my current settings; I've tweaked some of those settings since I posted that. Any chance of seeing / saying what you've tweaked recently (wasn't sure if you updated your original post with the settings)? I've been using your settings for the past 6 weeks as I re-ripped some s...

Re: Audio out of sync on 5.1

Do you have your computer hooked up to support 5.1? If not then then audio playing out of quicktime is probably in sync because it is playing the stereo track instead of the 5.1 (I'm assuming you're using the AAC + AC3 setting so you have both audio tracks, which could be a big assumption). A couple...

I'm also interested nightstrm if you'll post what you're using for the 'one encode to rule them all' in the 'best settings' thread.

Great job to the developers - my aTV's have never sounded so good!

... once I ripped it using AnyDVD and ran that through (as opposed to straight from the disc) it worked perfect. Is there an equivalent to AnyDVD for the Mac?

Re: AppleTV to support Dolby5.1 Natively

Another encode with english DD 5.1, and no subs, out of sync by same amount. Are you doing this straight from the DVD or have you ripped it down first? I was having a similar problem with 3:10 to Yuma with it being off by about 2-3 seconds for the AC3 (while the AAC was perfectly in sync), but once...

Re: Any help having thumbnails for ripped DVD's into Apple TV

Again not a handbrake issue...but if you use iTunes or MetaX simply drop the art in there. The problem will you'll have is that the art is embedded in the file, and the sync process (if you are having the file transfered to the ATV hard drive) from iTunes to the appleTv doesn't get triggered on a ch...

AppleTV to support Dolby5.1 Natively

Watching the kynote from MacWorld and it looks like they are supporting 5.1 Dolby Digital on the AppleTV natively (via a software upgrade - no more hacks required). Apparently someone figured out that no one would want to pay $2.99 for a rental in DolbyProLogic... Wondering how and the format, but I...
