Re: Obscene Handbrake Speeds *g*

Again, I don't believe this is HandBrake memory usage - it tells you at the end of the encode in the Activity Log precisely how many bytes it allocated. I believe you are looking at disk caching, and observing the OS swapping out parts of itself to favor the cache for performance. This has nothing ...

Re: Silent crash, semi-consistent, need help pinning down

Interesting. In my case, my queues usually die after a meager 4 episodes. Perhaps the settings make a huge difference in the type of leak. I won't go into the details, since they are already available in the other thread. One thing you can do is if you have a single disc or movie, watch the memory u...

Re: Integrated 'Atomic Parsley' Tagging ability

By all means, leave MetaX the default. It is the best GUI-based tag editor the Mac has right now. :) I am just saying that it might be better served to have a preference control which app loads it, and make MetaX the default rather than tie the mini-feature's usefulness to MetaX exclusively. Heck, I...

Re: Integrated 'Atomic Parsley' Tagging ability

What I think would be nice is the ability to have a preference in the GUI to let a user tell Handbrake to send the file to another app after the encode is done... such as MetaX or Lostify (or even iTunes for some people). This actually already exists for MetaX. Huh, I stand corrected... it might be...

Re: Integrated 'Atomic Parsley' Tagging ability

Why do you say so? I've used jesterware on windows and its a converter and a metatagger. It just means it's possible to have a tagging tool built inside handbrake or some other converters. Seperating converters and taggers is just inconvenient. To be a nice guy here, this is the reason: Handbrake h...

Re: Obscene Handbrake Speeds *g*

That depends. It shouldn't need more than a couple hundred MB at any one time (it seems to stabilize at about 200MB per instance of HB). In my experience, 0.9.2 has a memory leak which can lead to crashes, but even then, HB only has ~200MB active. So having more RAM won't make HB any faster if it ha...

iTunes CCs are just Quicktime CCs in an MPEG-4 container. They have documentation on Quicktime CCs for programmers. iTunes Subtitles are MPEG-4 Timed Text tracks.

Yes, but I also want to make it clear it isn't a solution for those of us trying to rip foreign films. :)

It is a good solution for those that want or need CC in English-speaking countries though.

Re: 0.9.2 Memory Leak

Below are both the console and crash logs.

Yeah, I have the second movie, and know what you mean. However, CC and Subtitles in this case are two different things (even to Apple). CC is very limited compared to subtitles, and still uses the fairly old system that has been in use with TV broadcasts for quite awhile. AFAIK, it still uses ASCII ...
