Re: Error: This movie could not be played

It's the exact same format. The m4v extension is better supported by Apple devices (allows said devices to see chapter markers, soft subtitles and AC3 tracks).

Can you encode just a few chapters of your source, with the same settings except a constant frame rate of 29.97 fps and see if it plays?

Re: Permanently setting maximum video width and/or height

I am assuming the Normal preset does not guarantee compatibility with the iPod touch, but I have tried the Apple Universal preset and it worked well. I don't think I need any further help. The Normal preset isn't supposed to be iPod-compatible. It should work fine on the iPod touch 3G and iPhone 3G...

Re: High Profile Preset - x264 options

Are there any specific reasons why these settings are not used for the High Profile preset, i.e. do they have side effects (apart from encoding speed, which is mostly irrelevant for me)? I am aware the pyramidal b-frames are not supported by older versions of QuickTime, but I use QuickTime X. The n...

Re: [Patch] Miscellaneous encx264 issues

Also, the reason logging doesn't show up for 25fps standard keyints is that the logging message should only show when HB is modifying the value from the library defaults behind the scenes, in a way the user would never be aware of otherwise. Telling them it's at the default is redundant. Like, in t...

Because RF 20 (i.e. 60.78%) is good enough for most people.

I personally use RF 21 (~59%).

Re: Variance in file sizes

I am sure there is a proper explanation for this oddity. I just figured most of the file sizes would be about the same. That's where you're wrong. The whole point of quality-based encoding is that different sources requires different bitrate (and therefore file sizes) to achieve the same quality. S...

Re: Poor Quality on Apple TV

You must use the "Large file size" option if the output file may exceed 4 GB in size (otherwise, you'll end up with a corrupt, unplayable file). Note that this option is AppleTV-compatible, but breaks compatibility with some iPods (don't know about the iPhone 3G). Also, 75% quality is way ...

Quality 0 -> x264 lossless mode -> special H.264 profile, limited compatibility.

Solution: for x264, use RF 23-19 (55-63%).

Re: Pyramidal B-Frames and PS3 audio issue

The advanced panel hasn't been updated in a while. Next time it gets updated, b-pyramid will be removed from the panel altogether (now that x264 has mb-tree, it's not terribly useful - and it never was, even before mb-tree).

[Patch] Miscellaneous encx264 issues

I noticed 2 very minor issues with the code in encx264.c. First, we check whether b-frames or b-pyramid are enabled by checking the x264 options string. Which isn't really a problem for b-frames, but job->areBframes is set to 2 when "b-pyramid" is in the string, regardless of whether it's ...

There's a bug in 0.9.4 - "Attempt scan anyway" is broken. It's been fixed, the fix will be included in the next release.

As for HandBrake not seeing your Universal build of VLC, that's weird. Can you launch HandBrake, attempt to open a DVD, and post the contents of the Activity window?

As jbrjake pointed out on IRC: hb uses an mp4 feature called an edit list to realign the audio after the video render offsets from b-frames. maybe the sync is always off on the ps3 when b-frames are on and it's only really noticeable with b-pyamid because the offset becomes larger? which makes sense...

Re: Green lines in preview

1) HandBrake does not accept donations.

2) Don't open the IFO file directly; instead, point HandBrake to the enclosing VIDEO_TS folder.

3) If that still doesn't work, please provide an encode log (the log you provided above is a scan log).

Re: Pyramidal B-Frames and PS3 audio issue

jbrjake wrote:Why would you want to turn off mbtree?
To be more specific, did you add mbtree=0 to your x264 options string? Otherwise you're not using b-pyramid, so the issue is elsewhere.

Also, as jbrjake pointed out, turning off mb-tree is a bad idea. mb-tree is much more useful than b-pyramid.
