Re: Handbrake Works fine - I just need a little help understanding my results

Hello, I apologize. I understood that an activity log was required if something was broken. I didn't understand that it was required any post asking a question . I copied my activity log to a pastebin as requested. Here is the link: http://pastebin.com/rW2AbZu0 "Any post asking a question" is a pos...

Re: HandBrake nigthly: are good sttings for UHD and H.265? Verify please!

If you refuse to post your encoding logs, we really can't help you with your concerns. You need to post a log from 0.10.5 and post a log from the nightly, working on the same file with the same settings. Remember that the MP4 container is more restrictive of what can be put in it, where as the MKV c...

Re: HandBrake nigthly: are good sttings for UHD and H.265? Verify please!

Personally, I would set the frame rate to be Same as source and make a test file with Constant Framerate and another test file with Variable Framerate. If they both work, you might be able to get better results with Variable Framerate.

Re: Preserving the aspect ratio and Cropping

Or - The canvas size of a bluray is 1920 by 1080 (unless it's 4K or UHD) so anything that is not 1.78:1 has black bars to fill the areas that don't have an image. If you want the black bars removed, then leave the automatic cropping on, if you don't want them removed, then disable the cropping or se...

Collapsed preset list instead of open preset list

Please describe what you would like to see added to HandBrake: I would like to see the presets collapsed rather than open. Why would you like to see this added: There are a lot of presets! And of course user presets are at the bottom of the very long list. So this would make it easier to select my ...

My Vizio's default setting was for the showroom, and not for home use. Perhaps that was the problem with yours?

Re: "American Sniper" Backup Problem

I’ve never had such a problem, but it’s been a bit since I actually updated the version that I’m using. Sounds like your AnyDVD software may need an update? Big name movies like this often will need a newer/the newest version (at the time of release). I was actually referring to the version of Hand...

Re: Bulk Convert or default

If you don’t need any of the features that HB provides, ie transcoding, why not just use mkvtoolnix to convert them from MP4 to MKV?

Re: How to burn-in forced subtitles from Blu-Ray?

You can also use a subtitle editing tool that will let you scan the subtitle streams, and you can narrow it down from there. I prefer to use SubtitleEdit , but to use it on your Mac you’d have to compile it from source. I do not know of anything that is a native OS X tool that is worth a darn. But I...

Why is a log needed to answer how to questions? What's a forum for? I don't need a diagnosis since I doubt I have an error.
