Re: Question about USB 3 vs USB 2 with Handbrake

So upgrading my USB 2 hub to a USB 3 hub will increase my speed then?

Question about USB 3 vs USB 2 with Handbrake

So I use handbrake on files on USB 3.0 external hard drives, but it goes through a USB 2.0 hub to my Mac Mini that has USB 3.0 ports. So my question is this. If I plug in the USB 3.0 external drive directly to my mac, or through a USB 3.0 hub, will my conversion speeds be faster?

Re: OS X 10.10 - Yosemite

I have Yosemite and it's not crashing when I add other files to the queue. However, whenever I'm trying to add files and I scroll, it will crash. Every time. Not the biggest of problems, but it is a bug.

Re: Mac Users; MetaX? Nope, try MetaZ!

Subler can set the HD flag, and eve nest which HD flag (aka 1080p or 720p). It's also open source freeware and can do tags even iTunes hasn't implemented yet.

It's been a few years, think there's any chance of getting a remote back? I love using JDAnywhere so I can setup downloads on the bus, it would be great if there was a Handbrake remote to start conversions too. Use VNC. Yeah...I was hoping for something a bit...better.

It can't be because the AppleTV 2 preset uses slightly faster settings? ;-)

Both presets use variable framerate, BTW.

Well, I've looked at the AppleTV 2 preset and I haven't seen any difference in video or audio quality.

I attribute this to variabl...

Highest video/audio quality possible, as long as requirement #1 is not breached (simple, right?) So here's...

Ooh, the subtitle thing never occurred to me. I don't turn them off out of laziness (I delete the mkvs once handbrake makes an m4v, and handbrake never sees subtitles anyways). I'll do another rip, making sure that only the required audio is there, and no subtitles, see if that helps (and will post ...

Ability to auto add preset name to filename?

Hey guys, I love watching handbraked videos on my iPhone and AppleTV, so when I have an HD source I make an HD and SD copy. While I'm fine with using two presets, it would be a lot easier for me if, whenever I click on the HD preset, it adds the name to the end of the file (FileNameHD) and the same ...

Re: Ripit and HandBrakeCLI

I'm looking at the new Ripit and I'm not seeing anything referring to handbrake from within the app itself. A pity. I was always hoping you would be able to choose your handbrake presets from within ripit.

Re: Is it possible to make a dual HD/SD file for iTunes?

I use handbrake all the time for HDSD. Just make sure the resolution is width 1280, and for bitrate you're going to want somewhere between 3000-5000 (people seem to be happy with 3-4, but I do all mine in 5000 and am very happy with it). Tada, you now have 720p HD rips (note, you can't get HD from a...

Re: Optimal Settings for ZuneHD?

I would recommend a 1280xX res (so it's not cropped), with at least 2.5Mbps bitrate, that way it'll look kick ass in HD on anything, look the best even on the tinier screen, it's the best way to go. For example, iTunes HD files (and Zune Store HD files) that you would buy would have what I said abov...

I had a crashing problem with 0.9.3, then started using the latest snapshot build (all on 10.6) and have had no crashing. I have no activity log (not sure how to get one of those, especially when there's no problem), but using it might be something to consider.
