Re: Audio and Video garbled and spotty

HandBrake is not a ripper. You must first remove encryption with some other utility. E.g. MakeMKV or AnyDVD

Basically, QuickTime can't use subtitles found on DVDs at all.
Unless it's got a real closed caption track (not a vobsub conversion of CC), which HandBrake would label something like

Code: Select all

English, Closed Caption [CC608]
HandBrake will convert CC608 subtitles to timed text when muxing to mp4.

Re: Just a question about predetermined size in V1.1.2

Indeed, we didn't remove it "for fun", we removed it because it was inaccurate and unreliable. ... and often used for the wrong reasons. Target file size is fine if you have a physical media that you plan to put 1 or 2 videos on and space is tight. In this case you can somewhat predictably encode v...

Re: Error code 4 when adding subtitles

You also appear to be having some sort of problem writing to the network share you've selected as the destination. You should check that you have all necessary permissions to write to that location.

Re: System locks when encoding??

This isn't a HandBrake problem. Your system is unstable when overclocked. You need to fix that or don't overclock. HandBrake puts much more stress on the system than most other applications and exposes stability issues fairly readily. Since the temperatures sound sane, I would first look into memory...

Re: fixing a DVD-R with audio out of sync REDUX

Thanks for the log. It indicates that the source audio and video timestamps are the same. If they were not the same, there is a possibility you were seeing a known issue with some players and mp4 files that HandBrake *does* have a fix for. But since this isn't the case, you'll have to find some othe...

Re: Linux problems, ok in Windows, same version

Hmm, interesting. I'm out of time for the day. But I'll look into that. Looks like some kind of problem with libbluray's recognition of directory trees vs. iso images when the file is a network share. Can you try the same thing with the BD directory tree local on your HDD?

There are differences in behaviour between all 3 of the HandBrake GUIs due to differences in conventions expected on the different platforms and different platform capabilities.

Re: Is it possible to determine the final bitrate setting Constant Quality (RF)?

No. The purpose of RF is to use as many or as few bits as it takes to meet a certain quality metric. For some video sources this can be 10 or 20 times what it is for other video sources. I.e. for the same quality, cell animation encodes much smaller than fast action grainy video.

Yes, but the highlighted statement above is also incorrect (unless you actually meant "It's being worked but if it doesn't fix it, then the TV firmware is also buggy"). I'm not sure if you would call it "buggy" or not. But the TV firmware is definitely incomplete. The resulting mkv files *have* sps...

First Woodstock is *almost* right :mrgreen: When using detelecine, you must either leave the framerate set for variable, or set it to the correct constant framerate. It doesn't get converted back to telecine since telecine is inherently interlaced and HandBrake doesn't generate interlaced output. Wh...

Re: Simple Video & Audio Question

Depends on your playback environment. For maximum compatibility, AAC would be the best choice. MP3 would probably be next best for compatibility and gives good quality, but many players won't play MP3 when it's used in the MP4 container. Best quality would be FLAC (it's "lossless"), but then you hav...

It might be helpful to see the output of mediainfo for one of these files. Also, an encode log from your HandBrake encodes that don't work would tell us exactly what you are trying.

Re: PAL DVD to x265, resolution problem

You want a final resolution of 720x576. I forgot that you'll have to bump the resolution back up. It doesn't automatically keep "max" resolution when changing crop values.
