Re: Suggestion to notify when the original source is not correct.

Hmm, seems like a reasonable idea. We could probably add descriptive text to the new status pane in the queue window and signal a warning with a special icon in the job list.

Re: No audio in MP4 files on fresh install of Fedora 31

First, the 1.2.2 release is quite old. I recommend upgrading to a build of the new 1.3.0 release supplied by the HandBrake team. We provide a flatpak that will work across many distributions. https://flathub.org/apps/details/fr.handbrake.ghb Don't use HandBrake builds that are not supplied by the Ha...

Re: Horizontal Purple Line on Right Edge of Frame

You really want to get to an official build of 1.3.0 installed. You'll have to use our flatpak build on ubuntu 18.04. I'm only supporting 19.04 and 19.10 with deb packages since older versions don't have a recent enough version of libgtk. You can get the flatpak from flathub https://flathub.org/app...

Re: can't get audio from a DVD

You appear to be using an incorrectly built version of HandBrake, I'm guessing you got it from your distro.

Code: Select all

[19:28:42] hb_audio_resample_update: swr_init() failed (Argument invalide)
The above error from your log indicates that HandBrake was linked against an incompatible version of libswresample.

Re: Stutter Issue (Every 3rd and 4th frame is identical)

Given your source averages just under 20 frames per second, if you must convert it to constant framerate with HandBrake for use in another editor, then you should probably use Constant Framerate at 20 fps, not 30. Otherwise you'll have to find other software with more advanced frame rate conversion...

Re: Stutter Issue (Every 3rd and 4th frame is identical)

Typically you should use decomb with the interlace detection filter. Then the decomb filter will only be applied to frames that are found to be interlaced. If you had used the interlaced detection filter, the log would have information about how many frames were interlaced which would have given us ...

Re: Stutter Issue (Every 3rd and 4th frame is identical)

Is the source telecined? I see you have the detelecine filter enabled. When the input is telecined, the output of the detlecine filter will be 24fps.

But the issue was closed with no clear resolution, so I'm not sure what the root cause is or proper solution.

Re: .mpeg to .mp4 produces longer file

You're also using a fairly high bitrate for standard definition content (8Mbps). Try constant quality with a reasonable RF like 20 to 22.

Re: Batch/bulk merging/including of subtitles

I don't know what "muxing" is. Muxing is the process of putting raw media streams (audio, video, subtitles, etc) into a container. Demuxing does the reverse, extracts them from the container. Remuxing demuxes and then muxes. HandBrake also transcodes the video. I.e. it decodes the raw video stream ...

Re: 'Interlace Detection' & 'Interlace'

Hey, John, p30-telecine is rare -- I've only run across one -- but if the need arises and the source is known to originate from 24fps, how can I convert it to p24? I assume I would need to split fields to i30 first. Is that best done by directly invoking ffmpeg? Would I need to do the whole p30-tel...

Re: 'Interlace Detection' & 'Interlace'

So, detelecine (i.e., fieldmatch+decimate) don't work with p30 sources, eh? Correct. But HandBrake has another filter that is always enabled whenever doing constant framerate encoding. It selectively discards frames with the least measured change when converting from a higher framerate to a lower f...

Detelecine generates p24 output from p30-telecine source and i24 output from i30-telecine source I don't have the time right now to read your entire post. But no and no. Detelecine works with one and only one type of source material and that is i30. If that source is telecined content, it converts ...

Re: 'Interlace Detection' & 'Interlace'

Well... actually... it is, in a way. p24 is not interlaced whereas i30 is interlaced, so in a sense, detelecine is deinterlace. You are conflating multiple terms. detelecine and deinterlace are algorithms. interlacing and telecine are picture formats that both use interleaved fields. The detelecine...

Does this mean that makemkv also freezes sometimes? That would indicate problems with the disc (dirty or damaged) or hardware.
