Re: Snow Leopard Compiler

Do you have any tips on getting it working with clang? I can't for the life of me, it fails out in linking with some libmkv error, and even getting that far requires some mucking around (explicitly telling libmp4v2 to use g++ as the C++ compiler, for example) I'm building through Terminal, Xcode see...

Re: Any lossless formats Handbrake can handle?

Mysterious: make sure you're using 0.9.3 or later. It should work with essentially everything.

Re: AppleScript and do shell script

my sources are pretty consistent -- I use a version of dynaflash's advanced AppleTV settings (soon to become the AppleTV preset), which is basically bf=3:ref=3:8x8dct=1:cabac=1, and crf=23 because my sources are HD

Re: Subler (like Muxo, maybe better?)

The overarching problem is iTunes/QT/ATV won't even play subtitles by default unless you specify a preferred subtitle language. This is, of course, a backdoor way around it. You could say your language is (insert obscure language that Apple supports by default), and your forced subtitles will appear...

maybe because you're using a crappy deprecated codec with an even [Censored] ancient container on a crappy torrented source.

Re: Consistent Handbrake Crash

This is a bug in 0.9.3 to do with bad H.264 decoding done on Mac's with SSE4 instructions (iirc Core 2 Duo or later). It seems to rear it's head rather randomly, as you'd expect, yet with a bias towards AC3 sources, which makes no sense. I convert many mkvs daily, and this was fixed back in January ...

Re: Handbrake quits when trying to convert MKV to MP4

I have been trying to convert some MKV files to MP4. I would say that about 4 out of 5 of them do not work. Handbrake quits in the middle of the conversion. For my settings I start with the AppleTV settings and then modify them a bit to account for an HD source. Here is my most recent log. HandBrak...

mp4tags (a CLI implementation of libmp4v2, written by the libmp4v2 project folks themselves), or subler (a GUI implementation of libmp4v2), are both free alternatives that should be helpful to you in this case.

ok you have to reread this thread carefully basically deinterlacing is something to do with the source -- and so is deblocking in the filters tab. both 'filter' the source video to deinterlace or deblock. the deblocking under the advanced tab is about something called a loop filter that H.264 uses ...

That sounds like something to tout as a feature of the encoder: always on deinterlacing without any loss of speed! :lol: Do you mean the Decombing option under "Picture" or the Deinterlace option under H.264 Advanced Options.
