Re: Six hour dvd issue

If it's too long, there are most likely repeated error messages. If that's the case, cut out the majority of the repeats and post the remainder.

Re: .MOV files issues

Version 1.2.0 has a bug where it misinterprets rotation 0. Any other rotation value works as expected, but if the flag is present and it indicates 0 rotation, HandBrake is rotating by 90. It's fixed in the nightly builds.

Re: Seeking friendly advice on encoding DVDs & BluRays for Kodi playback via HDMI & HD

As mduell hints at, output size can vary dramatically from one source to another. My super grainy Aliens BD encoded to 29GB using the same settings that encoded Avatar at 13GB and Ratatouille at 3.5GB. If you "optimize" for one movie, you'll end up with disappointing results for others.

Re: Colored bars after scene changes.

Yeah, different decoder. The QSV hardware decoder is known to not always produce the best output. Pretty much true of all the hardware decoders. It may work better as new drivers are released, but software decoders are plenty fast and will only bottleneck if you are using a hardware *encoder* (which...

Re: Align A/V start - Windows vs Linux presets

Align A/V start is a work-around for some sources. Most do not need it, but it doesn't hurt, really, to leave it turned on. Actually, it's more of a work-around for some *players*. If a player properly supports mp4 edit lists, it's not needed. But if the player does not support edit lists *and* the...

Re: Aegisub position not working

I don't know Aegisub, but positioning specifiers are not well supported in SRT. SRT really has no specification. The "official" set of tags is what the SubRip program generates, which as far as I know has never been documented by the author. I don't think SubRip generates position information, but I...

Re: Samsung TV plays MKV in 4:3 instead of 16:9

Just throwing out ideas here. It looks like you might have selected Anamorphic "off" or done something else to force the output pixel aspect close to "1:1". For whatever reaseon, it is not exactly "1:1" but is "406:405". My thought is that this might be confusing the TV. TV players often only handle...

Without a log from the version that worked, it's impossible to be certain of the differences in settings you might have used. In the log you supplied, you are using an old version of HandBrake. The latest release is 1.2.0. The nightly build is very close to the same as 1.2.0 since this is a recent r...

As far as I can tell, there must have been an unintended access hole in the flatpak sandbox when I last tested access to network file systems.

Looks like a flatpak sandbox problem with network shares. This was working not too long ago. I tested it myself. So something has changed recently in flatpak's sandbox.

Re: Deinterlacing doesn't work the same since v1.2.0

In the meantime, I will use v1.1.2 to encode my videos. I don't really see any reason to move to v1.2.0, as the encoding seems to take longer. If you decide you want to use the new release, you could substitute the decomb filter for deinterlace. It has more options, but it also implements the same ...

I would test this, but it involves installing the nvidia proprietary drivers on linux.

Have you even tried the flatpak? There is no reason it shouldn't perform as well as "native" on any system.

fdk-aac is still quite a bit better than ffmpeg aac and also includes an he-aac encoder for lower bitrate applications which ffmpeg doesn't have. So if your comfortable building your own with fdk-aac, I would continue doing so.

Re: Will the same RF value get the same quality in h.264 and 265?

No. And in fact if you pick 2 different presets (e.g. medium and slow) in x264 and use the same RF, you will get slightly different quality.

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.
