Using or converting CC titles

I often capture MGEG TS streams which I edit with Videoredo. The original broadcast has titles of Teletex type. Once edited in VRD I play the file with VLC & I can see the titles & even turn them on/off. Your wiki help page doesn't mention this type of titles. Can they be used in Passthrough...

I pointed out that most players can stretch the video at time of playback. I wondered if anyone has created a chart which suggests just what settings o...

Do black bars contribure to file size

Most people seem to watch TV these days on a 16x9 screen. If the original ripped file was either wider or narrower that this I will see black bars either at top or side of video. Assuming the files had same bit rate to start with. Do the black bars contribute to the total file size & if so shoul...

Combine files & have Chapters & subtitles?

I have used Handbrake to create MKV files that includes both chapter markers & subtitles which I can turn on/off. I would like to create a longer file that is made up of 2 or more videos & still retain the same features. I also have VideoReDo which can combine 2 files into one from either MP...

Include DVB Teletext files

I'm starting to receive broadcast programs which VideoReDo tell me contain DVB Teletext, Is there any way to use these in Handbrake? I know that VideoReDo can put them into an MKV file which VLC can display or not as you wish, but your encoder is better.

Thanks in advance

Re: Correct 2nd track not on list

I have looked at every tag in the program for saving as a text option & can't see any text option. This leave open only 2 other ways that I know. Either I just re type what I see in Medioinfo or if the OCR setting in my printer works (I have never tried it) then that might work.

I can do a screen grab of InfoMedio but I can only save it as either Jpeg or PNG. I suspect that all you want is plain text but how do I do this unless there is a way of attaching the screen grab to this thread that I can't see.

Some preset preferences aren't saved

I have look but I can't see any way to save all of presets. I can get it to save format,bit rate, 2 passes etc.

What doesn't appear to be saved are my choices re burning in subtitles, or the advanced audio settings. Is this possible & how is this done?

Thanks in advance
