Re: *** AppleTV 3 and the New iPad (Presets) ***

Didn't see this addressed in this thread, but I loaded a BR rip ripped with MakeMKV into HB and noticed that while the source AR was 1920x1080, the Display Size listed below that showed 1920x812. Any way to fix this? Without seeing a log, I'd bet the difference is the cropping of the black bar area...

Re: Handbrake version 0.9.6 not running with MAC OSX 10.5.8

So I downloaded the newest version of handbrake, since I love this program. Come to find out that it doesn't work on OSX 10.5.8!!!! I am at my wits end!! Looking for either the older version to re-install but haven't been able to find it. I there works planned for the older OSXs. Thanks for any hel...

There are many more interlaced DVD sources than Bluray.

Re: Would x264 presets/tunes and HandBrake apply to Blu-ray?

I’ve read over the Tutorial: x264 presets/tunes and HandBrake and I am creating custom profiles based around this. However, would these still apply to Blu-ray (aside from obvious setting changes such as RF values). I typically use the settings from preset "slower" and tune "film" for all of my enco...

Re: Audio Track Names on the AppleTV

This occurred when they switched to iOS as the base platform for AppleTV. Call it a bug or a feature, even Apple-purchased content shows up this way. Instead of displaying the track name, they now only show the language (I believe before it showed both). At this point, all we can really do is send f...

Re: Low Voices, high effects.

My sweet spot for AC3 -> AAC audio is gain +3 dB and DRC 1.5. Any increase in gain should be matched (where available) with a corresponding increase in DRC to avoid clipping and distortion. It's always been my understanding that DRC (both hardware and software) limits peak audio so it will make lou...

Re: [movie] was not added to iPad b/c it cannot be played

I can't think of a single setting that would make an encode compatible with the AppleTV v1 but incompatible with an iPad 3. Can you post an encode log from one of the files?

Re: *** AppleTV 3 and the New iPad (Presets) ***

ATV2 profile puts some limits on some advanced settings that don't matter so much on ATV3. HP uses a more well-rounded set of advanced options as it is meant for devices fully supporting the H.264 High Profile spec, which the ATV2 was not quite up to. Not really. High Profile uses a better, but slo...

Re: New iPad and Apple TV presets

FYI, if you didn't know it you don't need to re-encode 720p and 1080p MKVs on "the new iPad". Just use the OS X application Subler http://code.google.com/p/subler/ and change the container to m4v. Plays perfectly in the video app. It looks amazing! Too bad it doesn't work in the old VLC app. Can yo...

Try opening the folder above BDMV and let HandBrake parse the disc structure like it does for DVD. You may find MakeMKV easier to use (free while in beta).
