actually i have a slightly unrelated question for dynaflash: why is the anamorphic setting still not always generating a "true size" output of the source dvd. by true size i mean that when the DVD is played through Xbox for example, it is full screen and fits my widescreen beautifully, while HB's en...

Hi Clee, It is a used version bought from Blockbuster... :( It's only one disc. I do not have any other machines and I am only moderately computer savvy with all of this. I presume this is beyond HB (not to take anything away from it's greatness) and I will need to "donate" to MTR3 because 2.6.6 is ...

Thanks for your quick reply baggss. Primarily I want to rip it with HandBrake for TV quality playback. Burning to DVD would be fine as well. HB can not do a proper scan of the title, only generating a 16 second file. MTR2.6.6 full disc and main feature (padding VOBs) generates an output where random...

Ripping Fight Club - please help!!!!

Has anyone EVER ripped Fight Club successfully. I have been trying for days unsuccessfully through multiple options, of which an output with unplayable chapters exists. MTR2.6.6 has been used and doesn't work either. I know, I know, this is not the forum for MTR, but I figured since their forum has ...

ok, last reply. so moving forward, i will attempt to follow your steps, understanding that this is not full proof and I will report any non-working sources. 2 things: 1. after extracting full source (I take it you did so because Handbrake couldn't initially handle ripping and encoding?) you are only...

I take it no one has been having problems with the dropped audio when ripping direct from source instead of MTR output? This is one crazy bug from the looks of the inconsistency. So maybe the key is: Full disk rip with MTR results in workable file? Main feature requires FFmpeg encoding? All other re...

Mind telling me your specs, both handbrake and your computer?

FFmpeg versus H.264 - audio drop related

So I finally managed to rip and convert a problematic source with the audio drop issue that everyone is talking about. Pulp Fiction was ripped with MTR 2.6.6 main feature. Under Handbrake, I used the suggested FFmpeg option, instead of H.264 which is a real bummer. The encoding went smoothly under: ...

Similar problem

I've made multiple attempts at encoding Pulp Fiction with new HB beta download and the resulting file will not open. 1st pass goes by as normal and second pass slows to 8.4fps average. 10 hour encoding time results in the "error opening file" QT message. Also, HB stales out at the end of encoding, w...

My long encode time using new beta referred me to here but: 10 hour plus encoding Pulp Fiction after main title extraction with MTR 2.6.6 where final output is simply unplayable in QTpro, VLC, WMP, etc. Don't have any information on why it won't play but at a glance, the file size seems "normal".

Finished

10 hour encoding resulted in unplayable output.

Will try encoding again but it clearly wasn't the audio.

Same deal with me. Just downloaded the new Handbrake version Sunday morning and total process of ripping a 2 hour movie is going to run around 10 hours.

My issue is an incredibly slow 2 pass at 8.4 fps!!!

to the developers, could this be a problem with the fps setting?

I currently have it on same as source but perhaps I need to manually set it? If so, how do I find what fps to set it at?

I have this too for Pulp Fiction!!!

Most likely is fps setting. Do you have it as same as source. This usually is the issue, where you need to set it to the appropriate level.

However, I am unsure of what this level is. Let me know if you find a fix.

Pulp Fiction barely encoding with 0.8.5b1 - GLITCH?

Hey all, Trying to encode Pulp Fiction with 2 pass and on the second pass the encoding process slowed to 8fps with 7 hours ETA. This will result in a total of a 10 hour encoding process. I'm sure there is a bug in the process. My settings: Duration of Film - 2:29 MP4 H.264 1350 kbps 2 pass same as s...

First off, kick ass update to the developers. Truly becoming a first rate product to compete with the pay-for software programs out there. I may get blasted on this, and my question also belongs under the ATV section, but: Encoding source 720x480 (Pulp Fiction) to Output: 704x370, Anamorphic 839x370...

Both questions are a matter of your objectivity and the DVD copied in question. Every DVD is different so try running 60-70% on one chapter and then check the bitrate upon playback. Utilize this number for your average bitrate setting with 2 pass checked. You'll have a comparable, if not better, out...

CBR AVG justified

perfectly explained and understood. so the CBR bitrate you obtain helps you set a rate at which quality is good in the users eyes and then ABR will "intelligently" utilize the parameter you specify and the log from the 1st pass to apply appropriate bitrates for high and low complexity scenes, result...
