If you happen to be using Windows, a simple, free, no-installation way is using mp4box with YAMB and easily found through Google. (YAMB is a GUI for mp4box.) Just put both tools in the same directory and fire up YAMB. Go to the Extract tab and input your video. In the "Informations" box you will see...

I hope I’m not off topic regarding this. I too am a believer that 2-pass has better quality than CRF given the same bitrate/file size. But CRF is great for determining this bitrate/file size beforehand more accurately for a given level of quality. So I'd obviously like to use both to optimize qualit...

If any Windows user has ever called out to the All-Mighty for a great H.264 encoder/GUI, their prayers will be answered with HandBrake.

Cheesy pun, but I couldn't resist:
HandBrake sure puts on the brakes to your search for an H.264 encoder/GUI!

Thanks to all the devs.

Well, the files it produces all play perfectly regardless of all that error/warning stuff it spat out while encoding.

So I guess if speed is still good and the files it produces all look good and play good, who cares then? :lol:

HandBrake works great for me then. Thanks! :D

Hey sr55, Other than a brief annoyance on my screen this doesn't cause me any difficulties because it always encodes the title all the way to 100% anyway without hindrance on speed either. Even though it may be CLI related, can I ask anyway? Should I be concerned with the final encoded file? I mean,...

Command prompt says "libdvdread" while encoding.

While HB is encoding I get this "error" or "warning": *** libdvdread: CHECK_VALUE failed in nav_read.c:207 *** It continues to show in the command window about 300-400 times per task - about 3-4 times for every 1% it encodes, all the way to 100%. Yes, it does complete every task, and I'm getting the...

I have a similar problem with 2.21 that I didn't have with 2.1. Yes, good idea to copy to the VIDEO_TS folder to the HD. It "works" now. However does it? The command prompt shows up as normal, but it's encoding it in fragments with about 4 errors for every 1%, yet the percentage completed still grad...

I used Nero’s .nrg format for the Disc Image File. If anybody knows about a conversion tool from .nrg to .iso that doesn’t suck, please post it. :D Anyhow, here's the Disc Image File: http://www.mediafire.com/?b3mzggymfby The Disc Image has 4 titles, but the first 3 are too small to be read apparent...

Hello again, I'm on my way to the office right now so I won't be able to test DVD43 or give you a sample till later on tonight, but I will be more than glad to give you one to help us both out. I can give you a small .iso or .nrg, no problem. I can use MediaFire, but if you have a preference of uplo...

DVD43. If it's a conflict with my decrypter let me know but I don't think so. None of my DvDs or disc images are commercial or encrypted or anything, only "home-made" from my PVR - just a couple of personal clips or some stuff from TV. These exact same discs and disc images worked fine on 2.1 but th...

Greetings. First post here so please be gentle. :D Thank you sr55 for bringing HandBrake, a slice of Apple application, to Windows. I absolutely love this tool! Version 2.1 Beta would have been PERFECT for my needs if it didn't lack the queue function. This is the only reason I downloaded version 2....
