Re: Best Quality, Small Size And And A Fast Rip

Yeah, like this would be the first person encoding for an iPod or some other baseline device... B-frames will clearly offer smaller sizes and faster encodes, but without any additional information I'm assuming a baseline device. Next time, pick on the fact that CABAC is off :| .

Re: Best Quality, Small Size And And A Fast Rip

The title says Best quality, but the topci says good Quality, indicating that he may be willing to let this one slip a bit. Nevertheless, quality is often superb when using H.264, so this should not be a big deal for almost all applications. Give my settings a spin. These are optimised to be used on...

Re: Subtitles on AppleTV

If your DVD does not have closed captions but instead has pictures overlain on the movie (as is common in Europe), then you can also get it done, though the ride is a lot more bumpier. You will need to extract these subpictures from the DVD, OCR these subpictures, do some cleaning on the subtitles a...

Re: AppleTV Ethernet Streaming Issues

Hmm, thanks for that reply. Damn, would it be ironic if actually turning off ethernet solves the problem. I will give this a try in the next coming days. On one hand, I would be relieved if something as trivial as this solves the problem, but WiFi working better than Ethernet? Come on Apple. :)

I did not want to hijack the topic by nightstrm (see http://forum.handbrake.fr/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=3944&p=21824 ) since that issue was resolved, but I am experiencing the very same problems ever since i got myself an AppleTV.

easily extract single frame on OS X

Is there an easy way to extract a single frame from an encoded m4v movie in jpg? By easy I mean that it can easily be incorporated into either AppleScript or a unix script. MovieDek thus far works the best for me in that I can extract every 10th frame. Nevertheless, the all-manual way of processing ...

Re: Subtitles: option to dump VobSub?

You mean that MP4 can support soft subtitles in the sense of VobSub support and not in the sense of closed captioning and SRT support? If that is the case then I must apologize since I was unaware that MP4 could actually do this!

Re: Subtitles: option to dump VobSub?

Indeed you are right in saying that mplayer and subler would work and this is my current workflow. To be more precise, I use VSRip and whenever this returns bad headers I move towards MEncode to extract the VobSub. However, sometimes the "opinion" of HandBrake and MPlayer differs a bit. For example,...

Subtitles: option to dump VobSub?

Since the newest svn code introduces a subtitle tab page, I was wondering if it would be possible to introduce the ability to dump vobsubs alongside the movie file (e.g. you get movie.m4v, movie.sub and movie.idx). I know that I can have vobsubs if I use mkv file, but I prefer to have the vobsubs se...

Re: Problem: VobSub in workflow

Ok, so, the sudden new wave of problems was certainly Ripit 1.2.6 related. The problems have disappeared when downgrading to 1.2.5. I know for a fact that 1.2.5 does a lot of rebuilding too, so that is not the problem. I alerted the developer of this problem, so we'll see if he acts upon it. However...

Re: Problem: VobSub in workflow

The first tests seem to be encouraging. I ripped some of the lesser encrypted files using an older version of Ripit, namely Ripit 1.1.5. I know that Ripit started rebuilding certain files since 1.2, so I figure that they are rebuilding a bit too eager :). Ripping the VobSub with VSRip and converting...

That might be the case, yes. I am going to try some other tools and/or older versions. At the time, I am using RipIt 1.2.6. I will post updates in this topic whether or not alternative ripping techniques make any difference.

I am in the process of converting my entire DVD library to H.264. So far, handbrake has done an excellent job at helping me out.

Re: No audio DVD ripping... is it able?

You will need to decrypt the DVD before you can convert it in Handbrake. You can put the DVD on your hard drive using a tool like DVDDecrypter . An alternative that may be preferrable is to use an on-the-fly decrypter, such as DVD43 . I am not sure why it does not work with AnyDVD, but just give the...

It doesn't rearrange just the "meta-tags" it moves the root MOOV atom to the top of the file and interleaves all samples. Thank you for clarifying! While this makes sense I'd be surprised a file needs to be read completely to read the end. I'd assume modern filesystems allow for more flexibility th...

Re: Artifacts in opening seconds of DVD episodes

Can you enable the options no-fast-pskip and no-dct-decimate and see if that makes any difference? Both options should improve quality without making the decoding more complex. Do note that the file will take longer to encode and will be larger.

Re: Encoding problems with The Simpsons Movie

Honestly, I would double the average bitrate you are using. I doubt you will see such artifacting when using 2000kbps. As a general rule, I find that you need to calculate the pixels you will need for the output (in your case 720 x 428 = 308160). If you divide this number by 170, you end up with a r...

Always use the lowest denominator: the PS3 can handle the least, so if you want a file you can play on both devices without a hassle, use the PS3 setting.
