Re: Connect to Server function not working

Just verified, to make nfs:// enable the "Connect" button, I had to install gvfs-nfs. You are probably missing this and other gvfs plugins necessary for mounting remote file systems.

Re: Connect to Server function not working

"Other Locations" is a feature of the GTK file open dialog and gnome vfs. HandBrake does nothing special to make this work (or not work as the case seems to be). I just tested this by opening a file that is hosted on my Nextcloud server and reading it across the internet (davs://). To my surprise, i...

Re: actual fps on dvd

It's not really a "problem" with vlc. It's more of a problem with DVD. The DVD spec only permits 29.97 (NTSC) and 25 fps (PAL). In order to reproduce film framerates for NTSC, they set field repeat flags in the video data that cause some frames to have a longer duration so that the average is 23.97 ...

Error 5 indicates a read error. Maybe the tail end of your file has some sort of problem.

Re: Audio not in sync with video

Are you saying that your original source video has out of sync audio? If so, this is not something HandBrake can fix. I don't know off hand what tool might do this. Maybe someone else has some idea.

Re: How RF works and finding the best setting?

It states that higher number is worse quality but it recommends using a higher number for higher res footage? That doesn't seem to make sense so maybe someone can help me understand that. The RF controls how closely the output will match the input. If you do 2 encodes using the same RF, one with a ...

Re: constant frame rate/CFR flagging in h265 bitstreams

I forgot to mention the other factor that trips up mediainfo and other such apps frequently. Every framerate can't be represented perfectly by the clock HandBrake uses internally. HandBrake uses the standard 90khz clock used by all transport streams and program streams. This is the same clock used b...

Re: constant frame rate/CFR flagging in h265 bitstreams

I haven't read the H.265 spec to see what it supports. But it wouldn't surprise me if it does not have a specific flag to indicate VFR vs CFR. It's not strictly necessary. In H.264 what the flag really indicates is the meaning of the timebase. When set to CFR, the timebase is the framerate. When set...

I'm not even sure how to answer "what platform? You answered correctly. Platform is OS and version. Since HandBrake supports multiple OS and OS versions, it helps to know what you are running it on. Each platform's GUI is slightly different as they each cater to the OS they were written for. An act...

Re: Automatic croping broken in the latest nightly

Increasing the number of preview frames usually only works in the case auto cropping is too aggressive. All it takes is one frame with non-black(ish) data at the edges to cause it to back off. Actually, we create a list of each crop value (i.e. top, bottom left, and right lists). Then we sort each ...

Re: Trying to understand RF and bitrate

PSNR and SSIM metrics can be generated in the activity log during encoding if you want to see them (see the PSNR and SSIM tune options on the video tab). But they are primarily used to tune algorithms during development and should not be used for encodes you plan to keep because as mduell said, tuni...

Re: Trying to understand RF and bitrate

You can't compare settings across presets. The only thing you can say after changing a preset is that if all the other settings are the same, the results will be approximately the same with slower presets generally providing better quality and/or smaller file size, but sometimes better quality and l...

Re: Audio sync issues.

That encode log looks completely normal and shouldn't result in loss of A/V sync. If you are seeing sync issues from that encode, either your player has a problem or HandBrake does. DVDs with 23.976 fps content are inherently variable framerate. The DVD spec only permits 29.97 fps. To achieve 23.976...

Re: Handling Mixed Telecine for Consistent Framerate

If you want a constant framerate without dropped frames, you would have to set the framerate to 119.88 which is divisible by both 29.97 (factor of 4) and 23.976 (factor of 5). HandBrake doesn't have this specific framerate, but it does have 120 which is very close. Even though the framerate is much ...

Re: Setting SRT language

"Deutsch"

It's sorted by *English* spelling, but displayed as *native* spelling. So you'll find Deutsch in the G's. It's really terrible, but I'm not sure how else to sort the list. Since native spellings are in various character sets, it's not really possible to sort by native name.

Re: How to integrate new version of x264 encoder?

On linux platforms (with the exception of flatpak builds) HandBrake gets libx264 from your system libs (i.e. we do not build it). If Mint 19 doesn't have the version of libx264 that you want in it's repository, you'll have to figure out how to build and install it yourself.
