Re: Which video player should I use?

I have found VLC to be a competent player, but Mplayer OSX Extended is my go to for anything involving subtitles. http://mplayerosx.sttz.ch/ It uses Mplayer with ffmpeg-mt with 64bit support so it is quite capable when it comes to HD content. Side note for curiosity, does anyone know if Handbrake is...

Re: MacPro OSX10.6.4 - Superdrive locks system on spin down

This probably isn't a Handbrake issue, but to be sure try the 0.9.3 release and the latest SVN while also trying www.makemkv.com as a ripper.

Re: [Patch] [Core] SSA burn-in support

Would it be possible to add a toggle to strip out/remove subtitles included at the top preserving those at the bottom using available position information?

Re: [Patch] [Core] SSA burn-in support

I've been using the soft subtitles support for a bit to test it and there seems to be a very serious flaw in the way it works. Sometimes SSA subtitles are included positioned at the top and bottom of the player screen and the soft subtitles support only supports the subtitles at the bottom of the wi...

Re: [Patch] [Core] SSA burn-in support

The patch works like a charm. SSA subtitles inside the MKV containers are made into perfect soft subtitles. I've tested this one dozens of files and not one problem.

The presets may not be equal so it is not a good speed comparison. The legacy AppleTV preset was faster too, but lower quality.

Re: DVD copy program

I guess my question is: Why bother? A portable hard drive is $60 for 500GB and a DVD ripped with Handbrake using good settings will be around 600MB - 1GB. You can carry all of them in the palm of your hand using any number of devices to watch them and it will take approximately the same amount of ti...

Re: Can't transfer videos to iPad

I'm hoping most of my encodes will work properly because I'm stuck with encoding the files again or getting a box out of storage to get the physical disks to rip again. I don't really want to do either.

I agree.

My testing with one of those devices yielded no improvements at all when comparing Quicktime 7 MKV to MP4 to Handbrake MKV to MP4. It was sometimes a lot slower than Handbrake consuming around the same amount of CPU as Handbrake. I returned the unit after that.

Re: SSD drive in Apple TV

Somebody has done it, but the sync speed won't be greatly improved because the bottleneck isn't the disk. The network connection between your Mac and AppleTV will be considerably slower than the disk inside the unit.

[MacGUI] Wrong language automatically populated after scan

I recently hooked up my new stereo hardware and found that some some anime DVDs I have ripped had the wrong audio track added via AC3 passthru.

Re: Avi's in DVD Players

The video data in an AVI container is usually Xvid MPEG4 Part-2 (H.263 compatible). That means the video compression is less efficient and lower quality than the MPEG4 Part -10 (H.264) video produced by Handbrake and similar encoders. Upgrade your hardware to support the later standards. WDTV, D-lin...

Re: WDTV / WDTV Live: How to disable chapter name display?

If anyone else runs into this problem, the solution is to turn subtitles off by default in Settings > Video Settings. M4V/MP4 received a lot of fixes recently which fixed most of the issues, but this one still hasn't been fixed yet and only happens in some mp4 files created in Handbrake in some cases.

Re: Interesting Ogg vs. H.264 Comparison from Ars Technica

The conclusion translates to:

For anyone paying for their bandwidth by the megabit (streaming video services), H.264 provides a superior choice by streaming more content at higher quality using less bandwidth.
