[PATCH] Theora!

I got a little bored, and thought "How hard could Theora be?" Well, here it is. Update: New patch for the latest svn. Shouldn't have any patch problems with libhb/Makefile now. This also includes dynaflash's xcode changes so you can build on Mac. Now one patch that only adds Theora. This a...

Per-track audio configuration.

Here is a patch for per-track audio configuration. It allows much more fancy things than are currently possible with the current audio setup. Eg: AC3 for the main track, with the commentary track encoded in AAC with a higher DRC, and lower sample rate. Basically everything for an audio track is per-...

Re: Fixing x264 timecodes.

The whole point of b-frames is that you *don't* use PTS timecodes, you use DTS timecodes and signal the PTS timecodes through the render offset. Even x264cli's muxer follows that: uint64_t dts = (uint64_t)p_mp4->i_numframe * p_mp4->i_time_inc; uint64_t pts = (uint64_t)p_picture->i_pts; int32_t offs...

Fixing x264 timecodes.

Long ago I noticed that some x264 encodes (in mp4 or mkv) don't play properly in MPlayer. I eventually narrowed this down to the combination of ref >= 4, bframes >= 2, b-pyramid, and 8x8dct. Disabling (or lowering ref and bframes) caused it to go away. I began to suspect this was caused by using inc...

Re: Subtitle SRT or font from Handbrake

I'm not sure if it is possible, but can we get an srt output from a video_ts output or is it all OCR ... and thus just too flaky for putting it in? OCR If that's the case, is there a way we can change the font on forced subs? I find the Handbrake font is just awful and would prefer to hardcode a cl...

Re: HandBrake crashes when chapters are 0 minutes long

Daan, thanks for reporting this!

Just wondering, though, what file format were you using?
If you were using mp4, could do a test for me with mkv or vice-versa?

Van, quick question about the x264 patch. Does it have to be an IDR frame for QuickTime to behave properly, or can you use an I frame? I'm just worried about the impact to coding efficiency this patch will cause for those of us that don't use QuickTime. Especially if there's an I (or IDR) frame just...

Re: AVR doesn't seem to recognise Dolby Digital in AACs

Thanks, Saintdev. I think I was confused by all the different Dolbys. So: the receiver detects Dolby Digital/AC3, which is usually 5.1 or 2.0 (which can have matrixed Dolby Surround information in it); but AAC is essentially analog stereo which is encoded with channel information that can be decode...

Re: AVR doesn't seem to recognise Dolby Digital in AACs

Hi guys When I rip to AAC audio, converting the 5.1 audio track to Dolby Pro Logic II (or Dolby Surround), my receiver (an Onkyo 605) identifies the input as PCM and doesn't seem to pick up the fact that it's got Dolby encoding in it.

Yeah faac encoding is only CBR with HandBrake, which is too bad, as the "quality setting" encoding ( -q xx ) with faac is where it really shines. Lots of the faac developers are now employed by Nero and working on their AAC encoder. EDIT: Looks like the 160 barrier could possibly be becau...
