Re: Best syntax for camcorder videos for video editing?

I use FLAC in the meantime. "-E lame -B 320" should be a setting which fits for better quality too. I decided to create a simple option file in the sourcefile-dir, which allows individual settings example of an option file: X264QUALITY=23 AUDIOENCODER=lame -B 192 CROP=64:108:24:22 WIDTH=768 HEIGHT=4...

Re: Automatic Cropping, eg for Android

As mentioned I have problems with black bars, but I agree that other people could prefer black bars. Personally I think with low resolutions and small displays it is better to have no black bars and to loose a little bit of the image. SInce you created Android presets, which player did you use with ...

Automatic Cropping, eg for Android

Many Android mobile phones have a resolution of 480x320 and unfortunately the only Android opensource player I found, which plays Handbrake files, the Dolphin player - http://code.google.com/p/dolphin-player/ is a little bit buggy. If the video doesn't have the full resolution of the display, eg wit...

Optimzing for Nokia mobile phone

I try to get acceptable quality with a Nokia mobile phone (C5-00) while saving as much space as possible. I had no luck with X264 and crf, so I tried the options below, but maybe you can give me some options using x264 and crf, which should be safe? This did not work, I mean the mobile phone played ...

Re: 1 Thread 130% CPU

Thanks for explaining.

Is there a (theoretically) decrease in quality, if HandBrakeCLI is called eg 10 times from 10 terminals with eg a Dualcore-CPU? So it is the other way round, not 1 video uses more cores, but a lot videos have to share the cpu.

Re: Best syntax for camcorder videos for video editing?

I saw there is a misunderstood option by me; -D 0.0,0.0. This is nonsense with 1 audio-stream. I don't understand "-D 0.0" too, is this default? What is a recommended value for a camcorder?

Re: Best syntax for camcorder videos for video editing?

I tried flac with a 523M mpg-file, the size is nearly the same with -C5 and -C 8.

I agree that the quality was too high, but I am talking of the compression of flac.

Code: Select all

1188284347 2012-01-14 17:57 movie5.mkv (.C 5)
1187764401 2012-01-14 17:57 movie8.mkv (-C 8)
Is this possible?

Re: Best syntax for camcorder videos for video editing?

I think finally I have an acceptable solution, which works with kdenlive and openshot. I tested the preview of a very short clip only and I could see an image and hear the sound. The advantage of using Hanbrake before the video editor is to use --decomb to deinterlace the video, if necessary, withou...

Loss of DV-Camcorder metadata, eg Recorded date

I do not use Handbrake for DVD-encoding, but with my own camcorder videos. After Handbrake has encoded the file, there are important data missing, like "Recorded date" and "Encoding settings" of the original (see below). So I ask to keep this data somehow. I think there could be a query for "dv" and...

You are right, but in certain cases it could be better to upscale slowly, than on-the fly. I think on something like -sws 9 (Lanzcos) with mencoder.
