Re: Intel Hardware Accelerated Codecs not Listed

I just downloaded and installed the HandBrake flatpak and the MediaSDK pluging from the nightly builds page and they are working fine for me. I tried to reproduce you're particular video settings as closely as possible including resolution and pixel aspect in case the encoder was choking on a partic...

It's a TS file with mp3 audio. I'm encoding using libav aac encoder.. The flash and blip are perfectl...

Re: Subtitles are not on the black bands

This is a bug that was fixed a few days ago. https://github.com/HandBrake/HandBrake/commit/2af5a05dc1a188eaf756000adf4f7901af2b7ec2 It's fixed in the nightly builds. https://handbrake.fr/nightly.php It is actually triggered when there is *no* cropping or scaling.

Re: Stretched video after conversion

BD players are designed to play primarily BD content. Anything that doesn't conform to the BD spec does not fall into it's primary function and I'm sure the manufacturers provide no guarantee it will work. BD content is very restricted in what is allowed. Only specific framerates, resolutions, aspec...

Re: Judder-free, 60 FPS telecine (?)

I was responding to this: ...but it screws up with soft telecined, DVD sources. It appears that the 'telecine' filter either, 1, obeys MPEG's 'frame_rate_code' nibble that specifies 30 FPS (which, for soft-telecined video is bogus), or 2, is hard coded to 30 FPS (since prior to my trick, telecine wa...

Re: Judder-free, 60 FPS telecine (?)

The problem with you DVD experiment may be that detelecine conversion by itself does not result in a steady stream of 23.976 fps progressive frames. When it converts 29.97 fps interlaced video it is simply de-duplicating fields to reconstruct the progressive frames. You can't create steady 23.976 fp...

Re: Handbrake doesn't encode. Dvd, iso or file

They have libdvdcss installed, so no, it's not the flatpak. There is no way to load dvdcss with the flatpak version. This appears to be a "custom" build, as it has fdk-aac enabled. [00:08:31] + encoder: AAC (libfdk_aac) But I'm guessing they didn't build it themselves because they are missing requir...

Re: Judder-free, 60 FPS telecine (?)

Ah, i misunderstood the filter parameters. But IMO, you are still creating a file that is customized to a very narrow playback environment. Your output file will improve this particular playback environment, but could cause issues in other situations. For example, encoding to 60fps will require high...

Re: Judder-free, 60 FPS telecine (?)

HandBrake is not an ffmpeg frontend. HandBrake uses libavfilter for several filters, but does not have a general anything goes interface to libavfilter. So you can't just "add a preset" to implement libavfilter's telecine filter within HandBrake. Since the telecine filter generates interlaced output...

According to the log you posted, you set video quality to RF 22 (not 6000kbps ABR encoding) and audio bitrate to 128kbps.

Re: CLI much slower than GUI version; using custom preset

The reason for this behaivor is that a preset file can contain multiple presets, so you must specify which of these presets to use. Also, the "--preset-import-file" argument can be a list of files or a directory containing several preset files.

Re: Video has a weird black text overlay

And it's "weird black text" because the palette for DVD subtitles is contained in the DVD metadata, not in the VOB stream. If you only open the VOB file and not the "disc" where the metadata is contained, you will be missing the palette.

Not all sources have perfectly synchronized audio and video. Some players will compensate for this and some won't.

Re: CPU upgrade results fraction of performance

Oh, and double check your CPU temperature. It could be thermal throttling. Make sure there is a fine coat of thermal paste between the cpu and heat sink and that the heat sink is well seated.
