The mac version is an all in one tool, but with windows I am trying to rip some DVD's that I OWN, and they are showing as copy protected.... I used to use dvd42 but I can't seem to find it for windows? What are people using to rip dvd's or how can we get handbrake to do so... and why would the devs ...

i had this issue in vista too.. does it create a stack dump file in the output directory? Have you downloaded the absolute latest version 2.23?

If you are getting the stack dump error - then try removing any spaces in the output filename..

Don't think VH yet handles .mkv files either. handles it fine. I just converted a very lonk mkv to 1.3 gig ipod compat. file - works well, fast, looks good... the source was 720p - when i used VH to burn that same file to a dvd, there was a very minor stutter here and there - but nothing like that ...

a lot of my vista issuews were remedied when i disabled the UAM - however, they did not ALL go away - and (based on the last version) i would say that checking the run as admin does not fix this due to reliance on other components , cli, cygwin.. the only way i think is disabling the UAM - and even ...

you can install the x264 codec into a slew of other programs, including windows media player - just google x264 windows media. Try to avoid codec packs as they tend to cause more trouble than good - if you must , i have found the cccp to be the best.

open the command line window(which starts minimized).. it tells you how far along it is and on which pass, as well as an estimate of the time remaining.. granted it's not pretty gui form, but it's not hard to look at either.

2.23 bug- aspect ratio

Program seems to have difficulty detecting 2.35 AR - happened on The Matrix, and Arligton Road where it reported as 1.78. Not the biggest issue in the world, just want to know if others are experiencing it.

sr55- great job on the updated version - vast improvements.

I appreciate that, however i am aware of extracting a disc - the thing is, using anydvd works for any other application and this appears to be an application error with handbrake. It's a work around, sure, but it doesn't preclude the issue.

Wondering if anyone else has seen a strange ghosting issue with 2 pass encoding. The best way i can explain it is that it seems like it doesn't forget the last 2 frames previous to the present.

Re: Using new Media Fork iPod H.264 setting won't copy to iP

640 is a hard limit. Not like the old macroblock calcs. Only because iTunes makes it so. Use an app like Floola to copy videos without iTunes, and you'll see that the iPod can actually play H.264 videos wider than 640px... Slightly annoying. This is not the result I just found testing with Floola. ...
