Re: .MP4 to .AVC --- How do I do this??

AVC is another name for h.264. 'MPEG-4 Visual' is another name for 'MPEG-4 Part 2' or 'MPEG-4 advanced simple profile'. These are video codecs. divx, xvid and h.263 are all variants or subsets of MPEG-4 Visual. If AVC is what works, then you need to use one of HandBrake's h.264 encoders. There may b...

Re: Please provide full instruction on how to compile handbrake for Debian based linux mint (LMDE3)

I forgot, you would also have to give the flatpak device access. I have the permissions set to be as safe as possible without crippling HandBrake's primary functions. But this means disabling raw device access. I think you can fix this with: flatpak override --device=all fr.handbrake.ghb man flatpak...

Re: Square-like polygon artifacts

You must have your brightness and contrast set very high to see the artifacts in your sample. But, there is a tune you can use to allocate more bits to "blackness". I can't remember what it is, but I'm sure someone will pop up with it shortly. Add 'aq-mode=3' in the 'more settings' box on the video...

From your log... libdvdread: Encrypted DVD support unavailable. HandBrake is not a ripper and does not ship with dvdcss which does DVD decryption. You must have installed that separately on your Duvuan system which is why it works there and not in the flatpak. We recommend using an app specifically ...

Re: Lost Custom Presets on update

Windows doesn't support preset upgrades and will usually leave a copy of the old presets in the C:\Users\%appdata%\AppData\Roaming\HandBrake if it can. So, you can recover into the old version, but not use with a new version. Oh, my mistake. I thought the newer windows versions were supporting this.

Re: How to convert hdr 4k file to sdr 4k file with handbrake

If you do any encode with HB from an HDR source, your output will be SDR. It may not be the tone/color mapping you want, but it will be SDR. Actually, it's a bit more complicated than that. What is popularly known as "HDR" is a combination of an expanded color gamut (bt.2020) plus metadata that is ...

There isn't currently a way to change the color of SRT subtitles. You might want to try using ASS/SSA subtitles instead. You can specify many attributes of the default font in the SSA header in the file. If you want to import them the same way you imported the SRT, you'll have to use a nightly build...

Re: HDR10+ encode

"HDR" is only tangentially related to bit depth or colour format. What is referred to as "HDR" is metadata that tells a display how to optimally map bt.2020 down to a lesser colour space gamut when the display doesn't support the full bt.2020 gamut. Even without this metadata, it is possible to do a...

Yes, it is safe. But keep in mind that pausing does not make it safe to shut down or restart the computer. If the computer reboots while the encode is paused, the encode is lost.

Re: Does handbrake just skip frames when converting to different frame rate?

When half of the frames are dropped. HandBrake essentially just drops every other because there is no advantage to dropping one over the other. Things get more complicated when 24 fps video has been upconverted to 60 and you want to convert it back to it's original 24. This upconversion is done by r...

Umm, I'm making total dog food of the explanation. Bradley is more right than I am. But the flags are not ignored either.

Re: Does Handbrake automatically detect telecine and detelecine?

HandBrake, in this case, will ignore the soft telecine flags and work from the progressive frames. Actually, it's the other way around. The video is encoded as telecined content, i.e. it's interlaced 29.97 fps with the 3:2 pulldown pattern of fields. The flags tell us which fields to repeat and whe...
