With upcoming changes to data protection and privacy laws in Europe coming into effect soon, we thought this would be a good time to remind everyone that we do have a privacy policy.
This applies to all users and visitors world-wide.

We have made a few changes to the language to make it clearer in relation to this new regulation but fundamentally, the terms and your rights are unchanged.

If you have any questions about this, please feel free to ask in the General Forum

Re: Video Encoding Hangs - Certain Movies

I have a shell-script that I use under OSX and Linux to parse whole TV-series (10-50 DVDs pre-ripped to a folder). I had to clone my original script and make a non-libdvdnav version because sometimes libdvdnav would cause problems when scanning titles (never while encoding though). HB states that (a...

Re: HandBrake Snapshot svn2592

I was looking at the soft-sub features in the OSX GUI, Has it been implemented? All I can see is a new interface, but it seems that it's still forced-subs only?

Re: Batch conversion using CLI via Perl or Shell script??

Might be your modifications. I have used the -c option on the entire X-Files (nine seasons of 5-6 discs) without problems before.
Just to be sure I'm not talking BS, at what range do you get problems? 10+ discs? 20+?

Re: Batch conversion using CLI via Perl or Shell script??

Yes, the script can't handle spaces in folder-names atm.. I'm not really sure how to handle it in the script, but it's on the list of things I'd like to fix eventually. The -c option shows you the length of all the titles on the disc(s) so that you can tweak the -l and -s options (most useful with T...

Re: Batch convert files

And if the OP is using Linux or OSX he/she can look at this thread for a few nice batch-scripts for the command-line version of HandBrake. (I personally recommend the script written by me, as a nice and feature-rich batch-script.)

Re: CLI and presets

The presets themselves are hardcoded, but if you want to override anything, just add it you your command-line.

If the preset does -x1 then you can just do --preset="presetname" -x2 to override -x1 with -x2.

Since you have a 64-bit CPU, why not run Ubuntu x86_64? I don't think it will affect the score much, but it will help you take better advantage of your system...
