Re: Can't get itunes to synch movie to iPod

Any help would be appreciated,

Thanks!
Are you kidding? If you are not sure about choosing the setting "iPod" when encoding for the iPod, you should'nt be allowed to own an iPod.

This movie has zero cells, thus you must rip it to your hard drive first. If you are having problems with MTR, please visit that forum. MTR 14d beta has no problems with this DVD in Full Disc Extraction mode. If you don't have the beta, then do the following in MTR 2.6.6 and DVD2oneX. 1. Disable 'Fi...

I bought two Lacie 1.28 TB hard drives. One is a backup and I keep in a fire proof safe. Each one cost me $500. Unfortunately, I am running out of space and don't know what to do now.

Re: movie unaffected by HB for ratio change.

I've been trying to rip some movies using HB, and some movies just won't change in aspect ratio, so they'll have black bars on the sides and are 4:3, instead of changing to 16:9 or something close so that I can see them on my Macbook with the black bars above and below the movie. I've ripped plenty...

I have been having problems as well. I have been ripping tons of movies using visual hub's "Go Nuts" setting, which is usually around 4000kbps and have seen great results. But after seeing HB's support for anamorphic and chapters I had to give it a try. So I encoded 4 different movies using the ATV...

A lot of people use it for Apple compatibility. I don't know what to say about your comparison, except that I cannot really see a difference between MPEG4 codecs (with >1500 kbs) on a computer screen.

Speed Benchmarks for x264 Options

Using the HB iPod and Apple TV presets I noticed an increase in encoding time by a factor of 2.0-2.5! I wanted to know which options were responsible for this increase, so I decided to do some testing. I hope others will do similar tests and post them as well.

Trellis, no-dct-decimate, & 2-pass

I was reading on the web about the options used in the HB Apple TV preset and read that some think Trellis should only be used with 2-pass and should not be used with no-dct-decimate.

Do the HB devs agree with this?

Unfortunatly, for 2 channel tracks, that is as high as it goes or has ever gone. Bitrate settings above 160 in earlier releases of Handbrake were an illusion. If you set it to 256 you still got 160.

Instead of distributing copyrighted material perhaps someone owns one of those discs and they can try it for you. Also read the stickies at the top of the support forum for ways to fix your audio issues.

Yeah, I wondered if iTunes chooses to store information like that in the file if it's had certain tags inserted already? I thought it was that as well, but an un-Lostified file will still have its artwork embedded, it just gets applied faster. Maybe if the file already has tags, iTunes has to re-co...
